The reason why it's taking so long for Android phones to adopt 3D-sensing technology is due to the difficulty in integrating devices' hardware and software, according to Digitimes. It is the latest smartphone which has been added to Xiaomi's ever-growing range.

After some weeks of speculation, the first official details of the handset has been revealed. The Xiaomi Mi 6X will be announced on April 25, and the company has already revealed what the phone will look like by posting a bunch of official renders of the device. Nevertheless, it may have already succeeded in incorporating the technology into the Mi 7 because the phone is sporting the Snapdragon 845 processor. The video also shows at least four different colour variants of the Mi A2.

At this time we only know that the Mi A2 is a successor to the Mi A1 and that it is a mid-range offering from Xiaomi. The images are spotted on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo on Thursday.

Recently, Apple has released the fingerprint sensor on the iPhone X for 3D Facial recognition feature, a ton of Android OEMs have included face open component their Smartphones. Like the Mi 5X or Mi A1, the antenna lines have been placed at the top and bottom edges of the Mi 6X. The primary camera at the rear is a 20-megapixel unit while the secondary camera happens to be a 12-megapixel unit. It's now being speculated that the Xiaomi Mi 7 will be the first Android phone to arrive with the feature, which Apple's iPhone X popularized.

Now, as far as the phone's front-facing camera is concerned, Xiaomi has made a decision to include a 20-megapixel in this handset, we're looking at Sony's IMX376 sensor here, and the camera comes with a f/2.2 aperture lens. In fact, it is now thought that the Mi 6X will run MIUI while the Mi A2 will run stock Android under the Android One program. First is the 4GB RAM/ 32GB storage, second is 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage, and finally 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage. As per a new report by DigiTimes, the Xiaomi Mi 7 could be the first Android smartphone to come with 3D facial recognition tech and guess what? It will also feature a 2910mAh battery under the hood. But today's report suggests that the phone has been delayed to Q3 because of poor results with the facial recognition system.
