It was recently reported that Xiaomi is now only selling the 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage model of the Xiaomi Mi 6 and higher variants like 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage and 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage are no longer available for buying. This suggests that the Chinese manufacturer could be gearing up to announce the Xiaomi Mi 7 flagship phone. Fresh photos of the alleged Mi 7 smartphone have appeared on Weibo to reveal its appearance and some of its features.
The alleged Xiaomi Mi 7 can be seen in white color in the newly leaked photos. The sides of the phone seem to be sporting a stainless-steel frame. The bottom edge of the phone is equipped with an external speaker, a USB-C port and a microphone. The two antenna strips on the bottom edge of the phone are clearly visible.
The images also reveal that like the predecessor model, the Mi 7 does not feature a 3.5mm audio jack. The image showing the right edge of the phone shows the presence of buttons for power and volume. It also gives a glimpse of a vertically aligned dual camera setup. It seems that the LED flash could be placed between the dual lenses.
The left side of the phone only features a SIM card slot. Unfortunately, there is no image showing the frontside of the Mi 7. It is speculated that the Mi 7 will be equipped with a notched display like the iPhone X.
Recent rumors have revealed that the Xiaomi Mi 7 could be the second phone from the company to arrive with wireless charging feature for its 3,400mAh battery. It goes without saying that the smartphone will be powered by Snapdragon 845. It may not feature more than 6 GB of RAM. The Mi 7 is also rumored to feature 3D facial recognition feature.
Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has recently hinted that the Mi 7 will be coming with under display fingerprint sensor. However, recent reports have claimed that there could be two variants of the Mi 7. The smaller may feature 5.65-inch display and it may not in-screen fingerprint reader. The Mi 7 Plus is pegged to arrive with features like 6.1-inch display, Snapdragon 845, 4,000mAh battery and under display fingerprint reader.
