Xiaomi Mi 7, the successor to last year's Mi 6, may feature an under-display fingerprint sensor.

Straight from the horse's mouth
In a comment thread on Weibo, CEO Lei Jun replied to question about an under-display fingerprint scanner on the upcoming Mi 7, suggesting that it may be happening.
However, some reports also suggest that this was an informal friendly exchange and should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Moreover, no other feature or specification of the Mi 7 was mentioned in the conversation.
Xiaomi Mi 7 is in the works
Earlier last month, a Geekbench listing revealed that the Mi 7 might be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC.
On the listing, the device was codenamed "Xiaomi dipper", and was spotted to have 6GB RAM and Android 8.0 Oreo.
Going by how Xiaomi has given similar codenames to previous devices and the leaked specs, this might really be happening.
