Xiaomi has confirmed to participate in the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The company is expected to launch its upcoming flagship phone — Xiaomi Mi 7 at the event.
While it is known that the company’s upcoming flagship phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor, nothing has been confirmed about the physical design aspects of the device.
Recently, a shady render of the phone appeared online through a Nigerian website, however, we couldn’t confirm if it was genuine or not. Now, a new render of the phone has appeared online, which is quite different from the earlier image.
The newly leaked render shows the phone with a bezel-less design, similar to what we saw on Xiaomi’s Mi MIX 2. The bezels are extremely thin on the three sides — left, right and bottom. However, the bezel is a bit thicker on the top side, mainly to house camera, earpiece and other sensors.
The back panel reveals that the phone will come with a dual camera setup and a dual-tone LED flash. The camera module has been placed on the top-left corner. There is also a fingerprint sensor placed at the top-centre position. At the bottom part, there’s Mi branding.
The recently leaked render suggested that the phone could have a glass back panel. This is in line with earlier reports which said that the phone is likely to come with Wireless Charging support — the first for the China-based smartphone manufacturer.
There are also reports making rounds which suggests that the Mi 7 will be the first device from Xioami to have Artificial Intelligence capabilities for the rear camera to offer stellar photography experience. According to the rumours, the phone will come with 6-inch AMOLED display with full-screen 18:9 aspect ratio.
The Xiaomi Mi 7 is said to come equipped monochrome + RGB dual camera system. It is likely to feature a 12-megapixel Sony IMX380 sensor and a 20-megapixel Sony IMX350 sensor. Last month, during the announcement of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun said that the company’s upcoming flagship will be powered by the same chipset.
Along with Mi 7, the company is also expected to launch Mi 7 Plus at the Mobile World Congress. However, the company has not yet officially confirmed this. So, we’ll just have to wait for the Mobile World Congress to kick-off.
