Xiaomi phones start getting attention months prior to the official launch, more so when it comes to flagships. The Mi 7 is no exception as the rumor mill has been revealing its key specs for quite some time now.
To start off, the Xiaomi Mi 7 is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset by Qualcomm. Now, a China-based industry insider on Weibo has claimed that Xiaomi and Qualcomm are working together to optimize the Snapdragon 845 v2. He has further added the development process is going on at a steady pace. Well, this makes sense as the Chinese firm is said to start the testing of Mi 7 in November.
However, the final testing of the 7th generation Mi phone could happen in February 2018. As of now, only a few things about the smartphone have come to light. For example, it is likely to feature a large-sized OLED display manufactured by Samsung. Keeping in line with the current trend, the display could have an aspect ratio of 18:9.
Although, it is not confirmed officially, we don't think the Mi 7 will arrive with an under-screen fingerprint scanner. Recent reports even suggested that the smartphone will feature the face-recognition technology, which is seen on the newly launched Apple iPhone X.
There is another possibility that the Xiaomi Mi 7 will carry support for wireless charging. We must mention though, these are all rumors with no solid evidence. That being said, the Chinese leaksters come up with information, that turn out to be legit eventually.
