It appears the rumor about the Xiaomi Mi 7 arriving at the end of the month is true. A new info has confirmed the next flagship may arrive in less than two weeks.

A photo taken outside a China Mobile store shows a LED signpost that says pre-order for the Xiaomi Mi 7 begins May 27. This lends credibility to the leaked poster that mentioned the phone will launch on May 23.

If the Xiaomi Mi 7 arrives this month that puts a 2-month gap between it and the Mi MIX 2s which seems pretty small. We have a feeling it may affect sales of the MIX flagship even though there will be a few differences in design and some features.

The Xiaomi Mi 7 is rumored to have a 5.6-inch OLED display with a notch at the top. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 is the expected chipset of choice and it is paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of storage.

It is also expected to support wireless charging like the Mi MIX 2s, and have dual rear cameras, 3D facial recognition, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a 3,350mAh battery.

There is a chance the Mi 7 won’t come alone. Earlier today, we reported a list of unreleased Xiaomi products listed on the Eurasian Economic Commissions’ website and it mentioned the Mi 7 Lite. This means we should expect a less-powerful variant of this year’s flagship alongside the rumored Mi Band 3.

Are you excited for the Xiaomi Mi 7 or you prefer the Mi MIX 2s? Do let us know what you think?
