Many smartphone OEMs are getting ready to unleash their flagship smartphones at the start of this year. During the unveiling of the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform at the Snapdragon Tech Summit 2017 that was held in December 2017, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun had said that the company’s next flagship phone would be powered by the Snapdragon 845. The company will be present at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 that will be held in the next month. Previous reports have revealed that the company may unveil the Xiaomi Mi 7 flagship phone at MWC 2018. However, a new rumor suggests that there is a possibility that the company may debut the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S smartphone at MWC 2018.
It is a known fact that Apple is trendsetting company. After the launch of the iPhone X that has a full screen design with a notch at the top, other smartphone OEMs are also reportedly working on unveiling similar looking flagship phones. For instance, the Huawei P20 that is rumored to feature a 6.01-inch LCD display may sport a notch at the top.
Xiaomi too is rumored to be working on a device that will have a full screen design that has an iPhone-like notch. It is reportedly codenamed as Polaris and it is likely to arrive in the market as Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S. It is speculated that its notch may feature facial recognition sensor. The Snapdragon 845 chipset is expected to fuel the smartphone along with 6 GB of RAM. It may feature a dual camera setup featuring a 12-megpaixel RBG sensor and a 12-megapixel monochrome sensor on its rear panel. Speculations are rife that it may offer an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. As far as the pricing is concerned, it may arrive with a price tag of 3,000 Yuan.
As far as the Xiaomi Mi 7 is concerned, it is expected to arrive with a full screen design fitted with an 18:9 aspect ratio screen. One of its dual camera sensors could be Sony IMX363. Fresh information suggest that Xiaomi is yet to finalize on the design of the Mi 7. Its final design could be similar to the iPhone X. The Mi 7 may end up looking like the Mi MIX 2S.
