It can be unlocked with wet hands
The top-end flagship smartphone Xiaomi 14 Ultra will receive an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor and will become the only smartphone in the line with such a solution. This was reported by insider Digital Chat Station.
Judging by previously published information, Xiaomi14 Ultra should use an ultrasonic under-display fingerprint scanner manufactured by Goodix, and not a Qualcomm solution.
Compared with traditional optical fingerprint solutions, pulses emitted by ultrasonic sensors can recognize unique fingerprints to generate 3D depth data, thereby achieving higher accuracy. When ultrasonic waves identify fingerprints, the screen does not need to be turned up to high brightness.
More importantly, smartphones with ultrasonic fingerprint sensors can be unlocked with wet hands. Traditional phones with optical fingerprints will not unlock in such cases.
Xiaomi 14 Ultra will be the only smartphone in this flagship
Previously, the same source reported that the main camera will support a variable aperture that can be adjusted from F/1.6 to F/4.0, fixing the amount of light entering the image sensor. The 50-megapixel sensor of the main camera of Xiaomi 14 Ultra will be Sony LYT900. This sensor is an optimized version of the Sony IMX989 and has an optical format of 1 inch. It is also stated that Dual Conversion Gain technology will improve image quality by reducing the amount of noise.
It is expected that Xiaomi 14 Ultra will be equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen3 mobile platform and will receive up to 1 TB of flash memory. It will be released in the first quarter of next year.
