The Xiaomi Mi 5 might be the first phone to implement Qualcomm's 3D Fingerprint technology

This is the fingerprint scanner I've been waiting for. Hopefully a US smartphone will have it soon after.

Needs to be US bound and have an SD card slot and they can have my money : )

If Xiaomi follows the tradition, it won't have Sd card support. That is only in the Redmi series unfortunately.

Now Apple moved alway from Emmc and moved to supper fast ssd speed, closer to ufs, if oem keep adding sd cards they will be way slow next to Apple phones in normal use

That's what I call innovation. Well done Xiaomi!

Yup, it says so right in the article. The technology is created by Qualcomm, the first device to use it is from Xiaomi.

3d finger printing scanner sounds a little off putting and unnecessary to me. How long until someone 3d prints images of that finger print?

Well....it would seem all finger print scanners would be affected by that.

The point of this is to make fps more secure, and this technology doesn't go by an image, it maps your fingerprint ridges. If someone goes through the trouble of 3D printing your finger, is it really going to be worth it for them?

There, now would you quite spamming every F-ing article? I mean, were you just too stupid to find it on your own and needed a grownup to find it for you? Here's a little hint, if you want to get people on Sony's side, spamming every article isn't the way to do it.
What you're doing is more like a little kid poking someone repeatedly in the arm saying "Hey, are you listening, are you listening, are you listening, are you listening, are you listening, are you listening, are you listening, are you listening, are you listening, are you listening..........."

Use Snapdragon smartphone is a smartphone amount ... I hope Samsung and LG continue to develop their SOC and bring something new and exclusive.
