Yesterday, Xiaomi presented its new flagship smartphone Mi 11. It received an updated fingerprint scanner, which, as it turned out, can be used not only for unlocking the device and confirming payments.
The fact is that the Xiaomi Mi 11 sub-screen sensor can be used as a heart rate sensor. It was created by the Chinese company Goodix, which develops biometric technologies for mobile devices. According to a Goodix spokesman, the scanner in the smartphone reads the pulse with the same accuracy as sensors in smartwatches and smart bracelets. That is, this is not the best way to measure, but nevertheless, it is always convenient to have such an opportunity at hand.
