A key feature of Xiaomi's soon-to-be released Mi 5 has surfaced online revealing that the device will boast top-notch security feature.
Technology spy team Leaksfly on Weibo (Chinese social network site) revealed that the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 5, which is slated to be debuted in November, will house Qualcomm's Snapdragon Sense ID technology based 3D finger-print system, which is said to be more advanced than the one present on the current crop of tier-1 brands like Apple and Samsung phones.
How much superior is Snapdragon Sense ID compared to others?
Qualcomm claims that Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology uses innovative ultrasonic technology to create a detailed 3D map of the minute details of the fingerprint so that it becomes really tough for un-authorized people to replicate the user's finger impression.
On the other hand, finger-print technology used in rival phones takes 2D based finger-impressions, which are susceptible to duplication using a semi-transparent latex mould embellished with a fake fingerprint.
