The Xiaomi Mi7 has leaked again,this time in real life images. The leaks confirm the presence of the notched display and dual camera setups. The images throw light upon all the design aspects of the upcoming Xiaomi flagship.
The most noticeable feature of the Mi7 is its resemblance to the iPhone X, not just from the front, but also from the back. The notch up front seems exactly the same as the iPhone X and so does the vertically aligned dual camera setup. What differentiates the Mi7 is the presence of a fingerprint scanner on the back and a thicker chin on the bottom of the screen. In one of the images, it is placed beside a similar smartphone which looks same as the Mi Mix 2S but does not have the same branding as the Mix 2S on the back. Is it a smaller version of the Mi7? In earlier reports which detailed the cases of the Mi7, there was no cut-out for the fingerprint scanner, leading us to believe there won’t be one. Rumors also hint that there would be an under-the-display fingerprint scanner. Such conflicting reports suggest taking this report with a pinch of salt.
The leak showing the spec sheet reveals pretty much everything that needs to be know about the Xiaomi Mi7 spec-wise. The phone will sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset clocked at 2.8GHz coupled with GB of RAM and 128GB of on board storage. It will be powered by Android 8.1.0 Oreo with MIUI 188.8.131.52 on top. The Mi7 is expected to be available in two memory variants 6GB+64GB for ~$439 and the 6GB+128GB for ~$518. These prices are courtesy of the appearance that the Mi7 made on the official Mi store online. The listing was then taken down. Xiaomi is expected to unveil their next flagship on the 23rd of May according to a teaser posted earlier.
