There is a high level of hype around Xiaomi these days as the company has confirmed that it will hold an important event on May 31. And the hype is growing even more as in the past few hours a new official post on Weibo has suggested that something important will happen tomorrow (May 21) in the morning. According to the most probable hypotheses, the announcement of tomorrow will be related to Xiaomi Mi 7. This smartphone is expected to be launched alongside the Mi 8 and it will arrive to celebrate the 8th anniversary of the Chinese company.
Tomorrow’s announcement could be related to the Mi 7 in the sense that the company may have decided to confirm its release date or something similar. Rumored release date is said to be May 31 and, the Mi 8 should not be the only product to debut in China on that day. According to reports, we will also see the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 as Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has revealed that there will be a variety of new products announced at the end of this month. Xiaomi Mi 8 is rumored to come with its own 3D facial recognition system which will rival Face ID found on the iPhone X.
It is expected to be equipped with an octa-core Snapdragon 845 SoC by Qualcomm running at a max frequency of 2.8 GHz. The chipset should be paired with up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of UFS 2.1 flash storage with high transfer speeds. Xiaomi Mi 7 will probably have a bezel-less design with a wide aspect ratio, and it should come with a dual camera setup just like its predecessor and the recently-announced Mi Mix 2S.
