Freshly leaked Xiaomi Mi 8 photo suggests a rear fingerprint scanner

Xiaomi has a launch event scheduled for May 31, 2018, where it is expected to unveil the 8th anniversary Mi 8. The Xiaomi Mi 8 has been subjects of leaks and renders, and while it is expected to highlight a 3D facial recognition as well as under display fingerprint scanner, the latest leaked images suggest otherwise.

Freshly leaked images of a blue edition of the Mi 8 currently making the rounds suggest the device will come with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and not an in-screen fingerprint sensor like we are meant to believe.

We already know Xiaomi the Mi 8 will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of internal storage. Separate reports have it the Xiaomi Mi 8 will come in two variants, and if our guess is right, the version with in-display might be the 8GB RAM variant.

The image, if real, will leave a number of the Mi community disappointed. The leaked image if real might also be a variant of the upcoming device, so there is the possibility that Xiaomi might launch a Xiaomi Mi 8 with a rear fingerprint sensor and another with the in-display fingerprint sensor. Whatever, we are just speculating and might only have to wait before thing becomes official.

      Not sure if god is really interested by smartphone leaks. “Cleansing of the Temple”, kick the merchants out of the temple.
      In 2018, no need to put god in everything.
