The in-display fingerprint tech currently, those who use the phone multiple times, need to scan the fingerprints multiple times for unlocking this device. This has been, now, fixed by the company.

The company states that it has ensured an increase in the screen area that can read the fingerprint of the user for unlocking the device.

At present, the sensor works on an area or spot that is pre-defined.

The Mi 9T Pro can be considered as an ‘eye-catcher’. The camera is a pop-up and people seem to be fascinated by this. Another attraction in these phones is the swirling designs of the glass. These designs are blue and red. This Xiaomi smart phone is considered an ‘affordable’ buy, with the advanced specifications and features.

Some of the other benefits to this smart phone are the 6.39 AMOLED screens, a good battery life, a 3.55 mm headset jack with no camera notch in the front.
