The next flagship smartphone from Xiaomi has got everyone excited after a video was uploaded on YouTube that previewed a trailer of the upcoming mobile phone. The star feature that’s got everyone excited is the in-display fingerprint sensor for the new Mi 8.

The YouTube video is a short one and we can’t see anything much apart from the in-display fingerprint login. The video also briefly shows nine versions of the MIUI custom skins by Xiaomi. The technology behind the in-display fingerprint technology is comparatively new and was previously launched in Vivo X20 and the Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS.

Previously, Xiaomi had released Mi 6 and it remains unclear why the company isn’t releasing Mi 7 and directly heading to Mi 8. Earlier the company had launched other high-end phones called the Mi Mix 2 and Mi Mix 2S. So the Mi 8 is probably another experimental product as the new flagship phone.

Apart from the exciting in-display fingerprint scanner, the phone also comes with a Snapdragon 845 chipset with up to 8GB RAM and 4,000mAh battery with support for wireless charging. There’s going to 64GB of storage. And for security, there’ll be a 3D facial recognition unlocking feature.
