We know the Xiaomi Mi 7 will be announced at the same time with the Samsung Galaxy S9 at MWC 2018. But as it happened last year, the Xiaomi’s flagships will appear on the market way later than the S9. As you remember, the Mi 6 went on sale in May last year. Today it’s become known the upcoming mi 7 will be available for purchase in June.
Mocha RQ, a well-known blogger today revealed the Xiaomi Mi 7 will go on sale only at the Q2. He also said the main reason why its launch is going to be pushed back is the difficulties related to the under-display fingerprint scanner. But still, it’s not clear whether the Mi 7 is going to use this technology or not. Actually, we have heard this model won’t be using it. Instead, it will support facial unlock feature.
Moreover, the source claims the Xiaomi Mi 7 will be using a full-screen design. But it won’t look like the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 but will use the iPhone X’s bangs screen provided by Samsung.
Earlier, we have learned about its features including a 6/8GB of RAM, Snapdragon 845 chip, AI camera, and wireless charging. Thus this handset is going to become one of the most powerful Android-powered devices around the globe. Of course, it will be competing with the Samsung Galaxy S9, Huawei P20, and other top-notch models. But all the aforementioned features showcase the company’s ambitions.
Regardless the fact why the Xiaomi Mi 7’s launch date is pushed back, it’s the second time when Xiaomi’s flagship goes on sale later than one of its main rivals. So the manufacturer should think about solving this issue as well.
