    So is this better value than Mi Note 7 Pro at $200? I don’t think so.
    Furthermore, Snapdragon 712 does not natively support 48MP camera sensors. How the hell is it going to make use of the Sony IMX586? Strange stuff.

      Sony imx586 is not an upgrade. Mi Note 7 pro has the same sensor.

      Maybe not but all the other are upgrades, at least they matter for me but the most important part is that they added the ultra wide angle sensor that I miss from the time I owned the LG G5 and G6.
