Xiaomi’s plans to launch its next flagship smartphone – most likely MI7– with 3D facial sensing and a Snapdragon 845 SoC in the first quarter this year have been delayed. Instead, the smartphone might see an unveiling after the third quarter.
Xiaomi Will Take The Lead With 3D Facial Recognition For Android Devices With The Xiaomi Mi7 As Samsung, Huawei Are Reluctant To Use Qualcomm’s Technology For Their Devices.
According to our source, the Xiaomi Mi 7 will sport a 5.8-inch display, and we’re looking at an 18:9 display aspect ratio here. The Xiaomi Mi 7 is expected to ship with an AMOLED display, and if the rumored info is to be believed, we’re looking at a QHD+ AMOLED display with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top of it. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC, which has not been announced just yet, is expected to fuel the Mi 7, and the device will probably arrive in both 6GB and 8GB RAM variants, which will sport 128GB and 256GB of native storage. A 3,950mAh non-removable battery has also been mentioned by the source, and the same can be said for a dual SIM setup. Android 8.0 Oreo is expected to ship out of the box here, though it’s possible that Android Nougat will come pre-installed instead. In any case, Xiaomi’s custom UI, MIUI 9, is coming for sure. At least one of the phone’s main snappers will sport an f/1.7 aperture, and a 19-megapixel shooter has also been mentioned, though it remains to be seen how accurate is this info.
