A recent report has revealed that Xiaomi may debut the Xiaomi Mi 7 and the Mi Band 3 fitness tracker by the end of this month. Freshly leaked photos of the alleged Mi 7 have appeared today to reveal its front and rear design. One of the images have also revealed the key specifications of the Mi 7.
The first image shows the rear view of two mysterious Xiaomi phones that feature vertical dual camera setup and fingerprint scanner. The corners of the white colored smartphone lying on the left are rounded than the one on the right. The handset kept on the left seems to resemble the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S. However, the Mi MIX 2S has “Mi” branding on its rear which cannot be found on the handset with white rear in the below image.
Apart from Mi MIX 2S, Mi 6X and Redmi Note 5 Pro, there are no other Xiaomi phones with vertical dual camera setup. This suggests that the both the premium looking smartphones in the above image could be the alleged the Mi 7 Plus and Mi 7.
Coming to the second image in this leak, the purported Mi 7 can be seen sporting a notched design. The size of the notch is bigger than other notched Android phones like OnePlus 6, Huawei P20, OPPO R15 and so on. The Mi 7 is speculated to feature complex set of sensors for 3D structure light that will allow the handset to support 3D facial recognition. The bezels present on the left and rights sides of the screen are thin, but the bottom bezel is slightly thick.
There is no information on the size of this display in this new leak. However, previous reports have claimed that the smaller Mi 7 may feature a 5.65-inch screen and the larger Mi 7 Plus may come with 6.01-inch OLED screen. The Mi 7 duo is also rumored to feature under display fingerprint scanner.
In the third image, the “dipper” codename that reportedly belongs to the Mi 7 can be found mentioned at the top. It also reveals that the handset is preinstalled with Android 8.1.0 Oreo and MUI 9 beta skin. It is driven by a 2.8 GHz octa-core processor which corroborates that the Snapdragon 845 SoC will be present under its hood. It has an internal storage of 128 GB.
