Xiaomi Mi 6 flagship smartphone was released in April this year. It has not even been six months since its debut and the rumor mill has started talking on some of the key specs and launch period of the Xiaomi Mi 7.

An industry insider has revealed on Weibo that the Snapdragon 845 chipset would be powering the Mi 7 flagship phone. And it will be featuring a 6-inch OLED display from Samsung. As far as Xiaomi Mi 7 release date is concerned, it may get unveiled in the first quarter of the coming year. Like the Mi 6, the Xiaomi Mi 5 had gone on sale in April 2015. However, the Mi 7 may arrive between January and March 2018. Some of the other 2018 flagships like Samsung Galaxy S9 and LG G7 are also rumored to debut earlier in 2018.

Other things that have been revealed is that the Xiaomi Mi 7 may arrive in 6 GB and 8 GB RAM editions. Just like the dual camera system on the Mi 6 that includes a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens, the Xiaomi Mi 7 is also rumored to come with the same set kind of arrangement for its dual rear cameras. The Chinese firm is expected to continue with glass and ceramic body design for the Mi 7.

As mentioned above the Mi 7 may come with a huge display. Going by the current trend, it may feature a full-screen display which means that there won’t be enough space for a frontal home button that is embedded with a fingerprint reader. It may feature an in-screen fingerprint sensor. However, since it is expected to launch earlier in 2018, it may not feature an in-screen fingerprint reader.

The Xiaomi Mi 6 and Mi 5 have 5-inch displays and the older Xiaomi Mi 4 and Mi 3 smartphones have 5-inch screens. Hence, Xiaomi fans feel that the next-generation Mi series may not feature a huge display of 6 inches. However, its possibility cannot be ruled out as the 6-inch display totting Mi 7 may come with a similar form factor like its predecessor as it is expected to feature a full screen display

Readers are advised to digest this report with a pinch of salt. More information on the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 7 is expected to surface in the coming months.

      Hi Balco, hope you are well. I am deeply interested by the Meizu M6 Note and the Xiaomi MI 5X. The 5X is already available on many resellers websites and the Meizu M6 Note is still in preorder. The problem is that I need a phone quickly and am wondering if it is a good idea to wait for the Meizu M6 Note. I prefer the bigger battery on the M6 and also the design of the phone. A reviewer (s7yler) who used the MI 5X for 3 weeks did an unbiaised review of the phone. He says that the MI 5X is a good midrange phone for fair price which has a great camera for the price asked. Of course, he says that the performances of the camera is not on par with flagships such as the MI6 or OnePlus 5. Basically, he says that the MI 5X is a good choice. The MI 5X with 32GB storage is around 176€ on Gearbest website and the 64GB version is sold at 210€. I am waiting for the official launch of the MI 5X in India to check if the Indian version will get the 4G LTE Band 20 (800Mhz). If the MI6 was sold around 300€ I would have ordered it instantly. The fact that the MI6 doesn’t have the 3.5mm jack is not a problem anymore. Your opinion is welcome. Peace!

      That’s the problem with all tgese writers they start having wet dreams one week after launch of phone, dreaming about the ndxt model, without ant actual facts, just what they think. So everything they say is bullshit.
