Over the past few weeks, there have been multiple reports regarding the Redmi K50 series. However, there have been no reports regarding the fingerprint sensor on this smartphone. Recall that the previous generation Redmi K40 comes with a side fingerprint sensor. According to @xiaomiui.net, the Redmi K50 will use a side fingerprint scheme. Unlike the traditional side fingerprint solution, Redmi has improved and optimized the side fingerprint.
In order to maintain the beauty and touch of the Redmi K40 fingerprint module is embedded in the function key. In addition, the Redmi team also restores fingerprint recognition data signals and further improves the fingerprint verification optimization algorithm to ensure that the unlocking rate and accuracy will not change.
Now Redmi will continue to use the side fingerprint solution on the K50 series. It is important to note that not all the smartphones in the Redmi K50 series will use the side fingerprint sensor. It is most probable that the higher models will use an on-screen fingerprint solution.
