The Xiaomi Mi7 is expected to be unveiled on the 23rd of May if the teaser by Xiaomi is to be believed. Weeks before the speculated unveiling, the cases of the Mi7 have been leaked. The cases put to rest a quite a few rumors and also lead to certain speculations.
No physical fingerprint scanner?
Judging from the case, the back of the Mi7 will have a vertically aligned dual camera setup sitting on the top left corner of the phone, as is the case with the Mi 6X and the Redmi Note 5 Pro. The power and volume buttons sit on the right side of the frame. According to an earlier report that showcased the tempered glass protector of the Mi7, it will feature a notch on the top of the display, with no space for a fingerprint scanner. The interesting thing about the case is the lack of a cut out on the back for the fingerprint scanner. There have been rumors that the Mi7 will sport an under-the-display fingerprint scanner, and judging from the case and the tempered glass, it seems like that will be the case.
The Xiaomi Mi7 made an appearance on the official Xiaomi store for a mere 2799 Yuan($439) price tag for the 6GB+64GB variant while the 6GB+128GB variant will sell for 3299 Yuan($518). Along with the under-the-display fingerprint scanner, it is also expected to sport wireless charging. Nothing has been confirmed by Xiaomi yet, so stay tuned for more!
