Redmi Phones Will Feature The Finger Print Sensor On The Back For Sometime

The rear-mounted sensors for fingerprint unlock on a Redmi device is likely to continue for some time. The reasons Lu Weibing stated indicates that we may not see the on-screen fingerprint sensor anytime soon.

He said, under the current structure of the thin build of the new models of the Redmi Phones 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. . He further said that due to the smaller area of the side fingerprint and the unlocking failure will be immensely high.

For these reasons, it is very likely that the fingerprint sensor will be located at the back of the Redmi phones for sometime in the future. That is, of course, until Redmi decides to use AMOLED Panel on its smartphone. You definitely would see that feature if the on-screen fingerprint technology for LCD displays are developed.
