Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, Mi 6 Will Soon Get Face Unlock Feature
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is the first Xiaomi smartphone to support Face Unlock. Similarly, the company is testing this feature for the Mi MIX 2 and the Mi 6 on the beta version. In fact, users can install the Global beta ROM to test this feature. However, as the ROM is in beta stage, it might not be suitable for a primary device.
