Earlier today, Xiaomi confirmed it would release the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S on March 27. Now that we have a date for the official launch of the big flagship, we are left to wonder when we’ll meet Mi 6’s successor, the Xiaomi Mi 7. While we are still clueless about a release time frame for the device, some alleged images of the Xiaomi Mi 7 have just cropped up online.
The phone seems to have a premium design, featuring a full screen on the front and a reflective back. The front is actually quite interesting, as apart from the thin forehead on top of the phone that houses the sensors, rest of the design seems to be bezel-less. The corners are curved and the curve continues to the back as well to some extent. What we’ve got here is a metallic blue back which is highly reflective. To be honest, the back reminds me of the HTC U11+ but if you remember, Xiaomi too isn’t new to reflective back smartphones. The Xiaomi Mi 6 Silver Limited Edition came with one of the most reflective back designs we have seen lately and the company could have easily thought of continuing it to the Mi 7. The buttons are all located on the right side of the phone. The back has dual cameras arranged vertically with dual LED flash placed in between the two sensors.
This isn’t the first time we are seeing this design. If you remember, we have seen a few renders with exactly the same design a couple of months ago. The only difference here is that this is the real phone while those were just renders. This brings us to the big question, is this really the Xiaomi Mi 7? It’s hard to say. The icons on the front are not standard MIUI stuff. They look large and weird and are nothing like what we have seen on the MIUI platform. But there’s the Mi branding at the back and the design looks pretty premium. So, it could be the Xiaomi Mi 7, but we cannot be sure, so make sure to take them with a pinch of salt.
