The prototype smartphone has been posted on the Chinese social media website Weibo. The CEO and co-founder of Xiaomi, Lin Bin has demonstrated how you can unlock your smartphone by holding your finger on any spot of the smartphone display. The Lin Bin first registered his fingerprint by taping on a special spot on the display once. Then he unlocks the smartphone by tapping on a random spot on the display.

According to the CEO, Lin Bin, the fingerprint sensor is about 50mm by 25mm. It is bigger than the fingerprint sensor on a traditional in-display fingerprint sensor.
