Should the Mi 7 be announced next month, Xiaomi will be the first Chinese OEM that will launch a Snapdragon 845-powered smartphone.
The 2016 edition of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) saw a preview of Xiaomi's Mi 5 smartphone, which flaunted some impressive specs, including a stunning 5.15-inch HD display, the Snapdragon 820 CPU and a 3000mAh battery.
Now, more than four months since the Mi Mix 2 made headlines, our attention is turning towards the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3. Since the number of leaks and rumours for the Xiaomi Mi 7 has gone up in recent days, it is being widely being seculated that the smartphone could be the company's highlight at the event.
So when will the Xiaomi Mi 7 launch? Thankfully, it won't be the case with the upcoming Mi Mix 2S.
Tomb Raider movie trailer: NEW teaser lands for Alicia Vikander's Lara Croft
At 21, she refuses to take the helm of her family's global empire , choosing instead to make a living as a bike courier. Alicia Vikander's debut as the iconic video game heroine Lara Croft on the silver screen is just two months away .
A tipster on Weibo has details about the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Max 3. The phone is already reported to ditch the fingerprint reader to feature an on-screen fingerprint sensor.
Instead, we'll run through what we'd like to see from the Mi Mix 3. The AI-assisted Snapdragon 845 chipset will power the dual rear cameras of Mi 7 for photography just like Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro that are powered by AI-assisted Kirin 970 chipset. This would be similar to what Apple designed for its Face ID feature that is so far exclusive to the iPhone X.
But the most exciting piece of info leaked about this device is its screen size. Xiaomi has been listed as an exhibitor at MWC on the official Mobile World Congress page. The phone's dual camera setup is expected to be optimised with some AI prowess to deliver enhanced photography experience to its users. The Xiaomi Mi 7 will nearly certainly ship with Qualcomm's latest flagship, the Snapdragon 845, while it will pack in 6GB of RAM. The Mi Mix 2S will come with codename Polaris.
If you take a look at the provided image, you will be able to see the device which looks like the Xiaomi Mi 6 and OnePlus 5T melted into one phone. As stated, Xiaomi is yet to finalise the design of the Mi 7, and it will have an 18:9 display on the front.
