Xiaomi Mi 7 To Launch In Q3 2018 With iPhone X-like 3D Facial Recognition

Until now Apple was the only company to feature facial recognition with 3D sensing technology with iPhone X. It seems like Android phones are even trying to include the same technology in the upcoming Android smartphones. Probably, Xiaomi will be the first Android smartphone to launch with 3D facial sensing. While it was first rumored to release in the first quarter of 2018, the recent rumors suggest the launch in the Q3 2018. The reason for the delay could be the inclusion of similar 3D facial sensing technology as in Apple iPhone X.

One of the trusted sources says “a low successful rate for facial recognition caused by slow adjustment processes of related software at Qualcomm”


Xiaomi Mi 7 3D Sensing Technology

For achieving the similar 3D sensing technology, Qualcomm along with Himax technologies and Truly Opto Electronics work collaboratively to introduce the most advanced technology. The only drawback is, the technology is compatible only with the latest Snapdragon 845 SoC. For the Android smartphone to offer 3D sensing facial technology, it should definitely be powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor. As of now, the Chinese company is in plans to integrate this processor only in the high-end smartphones.

Along with Xiaomi, even Samsung and Huawei are in the race to introduce 3D algorithms which may happen in 2019. Even the latest Samsung Galaxy S9 didn’t have this 3D sensing technology. However, the Samsung upcoming flagship in the S-series, probably the Samsung Galaxy S10 UAE might get this advanced 3D algorithm. Rumors further claim the upcoming Xiaomi handset to have an inbuilt fingerprint sensor.


If rumors are to be believed, then the Xiaomi Mi 7 will be the high-end flagship packing in 3D sensing technology and the latest Snapdragon 845 chipset. It could launch the Xiaomi flagship with the innovative features in the Q3 of 2018. Meanwhile, the tech giant Apple is all set to expand the 3D sensing based technology on more devices. In 2018, it is likely to launch three new handsets and all of them may have the same technology.
