Xiaomi is on the way to launch its next flagship smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi 7, the successor of Mi 6.
The new smartphone is believed to have a bezel-less display and dual camera setup to counter new offerings such as OnePlus 5T and iPhone X. It is expected to release in the early months of 2018.
Specifications of Mi 7
The device is expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and a 6.01- inch bezel-less, 18:9 aspect ratio display. The Mi 7 will also feature a dual camera setup at the back and will have a glass/ceramic body. The smartphone is expected to be priced at ₹30,000 in China.The Mi 7 is expected to come with three varients –green, blue and red.
The leaked specifications of the smartphone suggest that the device is expected to come with two rear-facing camera sensors 16 Mp dual camera setup on the back of the device. Xiaomi is seemingly using the new iPhone as its reference for designing the Mi 7. One of them will have a lens of f/1.7 aperture. Xiaomi could add features like portrait mode with an enhanced Bokeh effect and optical zoom using the twin-camera system.
The Xiaomi Mi 7 is said to have 6GB of RAM and 3350mAh battery, similar to the original Mi 6 model. Also, being a bezel-less smartphone, the next-generation Mi handset is rumored to have a fingerprint scanner on its back.
Notably, the Mi 7 won’t be the first smartphone by Xiaomi to have minimal bezels. The Chinese company already developed the Mi MIX and Mi MIX 2 in the past that set a benchmark for various other full-screen smartphones. But unlike the Mi MIX range that sports a ceramic back, the Mi 6 successor is claimed to have a glass back panel. This would enable wireless charging on the new smartphone.
