According to Xiaomi Mi Wallet official Weibo post, a new feature now allows non-NFC phones to also support Mi Pay. As of now, this feature is active on three models which include Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 5, and Redmi 6. However, users of this smartphone can only access this feature after updating to the latest development version.
Users only need to open the Xiaomi Mi Wallet APP in the MIUI system and click “Mi Pay”. After that, add a bank card and complete the information authentication. When the user double-clicks the power button to verify the fingerprint and wake up Mi Pay, the user can present the QR code to complete the payment. This is one of the new features from the Xiaomi Wallet. Another feature is smart card selection, which can support smart selection to switch between bus cards and door cards.
Back in 2016, Xiaomi announced its own mobile payment system -Xiaomi Mi pay. At the time, the company collaborated with China UnionPay to tackle the likes of Samsung and Apple Pay. Mi Pay use tokens to protect credit card information and will ask for users’ fingerprint verification for security. Users can also turn off Mi Pay through the Xiaomi website if they lose their device.
