After launching the Mi MIX 2S smartphone last month, China-based Xiaomi is now gearing up to launch its next-generation Mi-series smartphone — Mi 7. The upcoming flagship smartphone’s realistic renders have surfaced online, revealing the phone’s design and a few features.
The leaked renders of the smartphone show that the Mi 7 will feature a notch on top of the display, similar to the Apple iPhone X. Further, it suggests that the phone will come with an under display fingerprint sensor, a technology introduced in Vivo X21 UD and Vivo Apex.
In the leaked render, there’s no traditional fingerprint sensor on the phone’s back panel or front. Also, no fingerprint sensor seems to have been placed on the side edges. Thus, it seems that the phone will come with an in-display fingerprint reader. We are also expecting the phone to come with a Face Unlock feature.
Unlike its predecessor, the smartphone will come with a metal back instead of the glass back panel. If this turns out to be true, then the Mi 7 will lack wireless charging support. If the Xiaomi Mi 7 supports wireless charging, it will either have a glass or ceramic back.
The earlier rumor revealed that the Mi 7 will support 7.5W wireless charging that is also available on Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X smartphones. The company’s recently launched smartphone — Mi MIX 2S also supports wireless charging.
On the back panel of the Mi 7, the camera module is placed on the top-right side. It has a dual camera setup, with both lenses stacked vertically. An LED flash is placed between both the camera sensors. At the center-bottom, there’s a Mi branding. The volume rocker and the power button are placed on the right side.
The leaked render shows the smartphone in three colors — Grey, Red, and Blue. The company has not yet confirmed anything related to the upcoming flagship smartphone Mi 7. Since the company recently launched Mi MIX 2S, we expect the Mi 7 to launch after a couple of months.
