Xiaomi explains why the Redmi Note 7 series did not have on-screen fingerprint sensor

Redmi’s Vp Lu Weibin on Sunday sought the opinions of fans on Weibo about the feature they would like to see get improved on the Redmi Note 7 series. Surprisingly, most of the comments were specific about one thing, and that is the lack of an on-screen fingerprint sensor on the device.

Lu Weibing then responded, stating reasons why we may not see on-screen fingerprint sensors on the Redmi models any time soon. The reason is that the device uses an LCD display and under-screen sensors can only be included on AMOLED screens. He also explained that due to the thin build of the model, it was not feasible to put a side-mounted fingerprint sensor since the surface area would be small and so, the failure rate could be high.

To capture such beautiful photos, head over to the portrait mode and tap on the circular icon at the lower-left corner. Select an effect from the ton of available ones, adjust the distance until you see a blue outline and click.

2. SWITCH TO 48-MEGAPIXEL
The 48-megapixel camera is one of the key features of the Redmi Note 7 Pro. With it, you can capture more details in your frames. There are two ways to enable it. In the normal Photo mode, go to Settings and tap on the 48MP icon.

Another way is to open the Pro Mode and tap on the 48MP icon at the top ribbon. Quite naturally, this would require you to know your way around the other camera settings such as White Balance and ISO, among others.




3. ACTIVATE AI CAMERA
If you are someone who doesn’t want to get into the nitty-gritty of adjusting the exposure and brightness level manually every time you pull out your camera, it’s time you let the phone handle them for you.

4. TWEAK THE DEFAULT CONTRAST LEVELS
Similar to the other members of its brethren, the Note 7 Pro’s camera also has few options that let you adjust the contrast levels as per your choice. When enabled, these settings adds a punch to the overall image.

To enable them, go to the Camera settings, and scroll down until you see Contrast. Choose High, and you are good to go. Similarly, you can also set the Saturation and Sharpness levels.

5. MAKE USE OF THE SPLIT SCREEN
Ever since the split screen feature debuted with Android Nougat, it has been implemented in various ways by different phone makers. While some opt to hide it in the three-dot menu in the Recents menu, others choose to go for a long-press and hold technique.

With MIUI 10, Xiaomi has chosen to go with a simple button approach. The button is visible when you activate the Overview section. Just tap on it and drag an app window to it.
