Xiaomi to Launch Mi 7 With Snapdragon 845 & 6 inch OLED

Rumoured Mi Mix 3 prototypes shave off more bezel-space

But months ahead of its formal release date, the first rumours about the smartphone that is likely to be dubbed the Mi 7 have surfaced. It is rumoured that the phone will have Qualcomm's yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 845 chipset with 6GB RAM. A recent rumor hinted that Xiaomi and Qualcomm are now working to optimize the upcoming Snapdragon 845 SoC for the Xiaomi Mi 7.

Like the 2017 flagship smartphones, the Xiaomi Mi 7 will flaunt a 6.01-inch 18:9 OLED display, which will be manufactured by Samsung.

Despite not favouring the facial unlock feature of the iPhone X, Xiaomi is seemingly using the new iPhone as its reference for designing the Mi 7.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Starck Edition Launched, Priced At 4699 Yuan

Today, the company unveiled a new variant of the Mi MIX 2 called Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 Philippe Starck Edition. Sadly, the latest leak claims the Mi 7 will not adopt the feature, as the technology behind it is still not fully mature. According to a report on a Chinese website, first reported by Gizmochina, the smartphone will not come with 3D face recognition technology on the device. Since the cameras have been quite a bit of a challenge for Xiaomi, it remains to be seen how the Mi 7 changes the perspective for the company.

The main camera is said to feature a pair of 16MP sensors, and at least one of them will have an aperture size of F/1.7. This translates to about $405, but people in western markets looking to import the device will end up paying more due to taxes and import fees. But given the company's massive growth in India and favourable response to the Mi MIX 2 smartphone, the company might reconsider.

In terms of pricing, the Xiaomi Mi 7 is expected to retail at a price starting 2,699 RMB (Rs 26,500 approximately) in China. In fact, it is possible the Mi 7 will launch alongside other global markets outside China.
