Xiaomi Mi 7 Will Continue Company’s Strategy of Focusing On Innovation and Quality


Xiaomi

Xiaomi is the only smartphone maker that can get back to life after a collapse. It has shipped over 26.7 million units in the Q3, 2017. Thus it provided a 102.5% growth and got back to the top five smartphone shipments worldwide. Generally, Xiaomi has the fastest growth rate in the world. But what’s amazing it sales smartphones only in 14 countries. This company is the number one in the Indian market. At last, Xiaomi has reached its annual sales target of 100 billion yuan ($15 billion) back in October. You think it’s accidental? – far from it.

Today Xiaomi CEO, Lei Jun announced via its personal Weibo channel that Xiaomi’s strategy in 2018 won’t change and it will focus on innovation and quality. As he said, ‘Innovation determines how high we can fly, and quality determines how far we can go.’ This simply means Xiaomi will continue launching top innovative products and come in with the best offers in terms of price-over-hardware. In this sense, the Xiaomi Mi 7 is going to best proof that Xiaomi continues focusing on the innovation and quality.

According to the early leaks, the Xiaomi Mi 7 will sport a Snapdragon 845 chip. Most likely, it will adopt the full-screen technology. And it’s assumed to come with two versions. The regular Mi 7 should sport a display at 6 inches, while the Xiaomi Mi 7 Plus should come with a larger screen. The phone is said to use double glass + metal frame design. At last, the phone is reported to support a wireless charging using the US IDT program.

    I’m not worried about this phone, the Mi 6 was a great phone. EXCEPT THE CAMERA. The Mi Note 3 got it right adding the OIS to the mix. Hopefully they build on that and produce a great phone. Even still I’m probably going to be rocking that Huawei p11/p20 all year until the Mi Note 5 comes out.

      The Mi6 has OIS too. The rear camera setup on the Mi Note 3 is identical to the Mi6.

        I don’t know if you have both phones, but if you do, get them out and turn on the video camera and walk. You will see what I’m talking about. They are exactly the same camera, but the Mi Note 3 is far more stable in the camera than the Mi 6. BY FAR.

          That as may be, but saying the Mi Note 3 “got it right adding the OIS to the mix” was still misleading, that’s all. If your personal experience is that the Mi Note 3 does it better, then fair enough, that’s some good information, albeit anecdotal, to share. Just being a pedant, I know, but I felt I should correct the record re: specs.

            well being that its a Chinese company…specs often lie. Which is why I go more by actual person tests than whats written on paper. As evidence I’ll point you to the plethora of “Dual Camera” phones released this year that had second cameras that didn’t even function. Just saying.

              Well Narrated! I was a victim of second camera that was not functioning on Redmi Pro Exclusive version

              Xiaomi has been pretty damn reliable when it comes to advertised specs matching actual specs over the years they have been operating. At first I was just sort of correcting what I thought was an oversight or mistake regarding specs, but now seems like you’re painting all Chinese companies with the same brush. Ulefone, Elephone, Doogee etc. are practically unheard of even in their home country, whereas Xiaomi is one of biggest manufacturers globally. A better example would have been the debacle over the types of RAM and storage used in some of Huawei’s flagships in the last year differing from what was advertised, which they understandable drew a lot of criticism over. Anyway, I respect the fact that in your personal experience the Mi Note 3’s stabilization does a much better job, but now I can’t quite tell if you’re trying to use other manufacturers lying about specs as grounds for arguing the Mi6 doesn’t actually have OIS or… what?

              True enough, what is true for the part isn’t necessarily true for the whole, I did make a bit of an equivocation error there. But it was to demonstrate the possibility (I should have mentioned the Huawei issue instead) not so much the capability. The video camera on both phones is admittedly decent, while the picture quality on the Mi Note 3 is absolutely superb. In fact I would say both are pretty much in the same boat. The camera quality is the only place I’m questioning the Mi 6. The camera has this weird breathing issue with the autofocus and it forces the camera to constantly jiggle as it struggles to find balance. Combine that with the natural jumpiness of the stabilization and it made for a generally bad experience. I will power my Mi 6 up and see if they updated the software. If they did then I’ll readily change my opinion. As is, the phone was a jittery mess.

              The focus breathing has seemingly been plaguing Xiaomi’s video recording for a long time, it’s well documented in almost anything they have put out in the last few years, and continues to be a big failing of theirs which can only be down to software, given it pops up time and again in various devices with entirely different hardware. It’s one of their two major failings in video, along with the low bitrate audio.

      When people see pics from my mi6, they all ask what phone it is and where they can get it…videos are cool aswell, alot of details and coloring…they could have only made a better apperture (1.7) and it would be a bigger beast
