In spring 2017 Xiaomi introduced its new flagship called Xiaomi Mi 6. It has dual camera, nice design and powerful hardware. However, in comparison with other flagship phones, it looks very weak.
The Chinese brand does not want to give in to competitors, and in early 2018 it plans to present another smartphone – Xiaomi Mi 7 and Mi 7 Plus. New phones, like their predecessor, will receive all the latest hardware, great cameras, NFC, neural processor and much more.
In addition, new devices will have full screen and 18:9 displays. It can not be otherwise, because now it is the main trend and even budget Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus offer a similar design.
It became known that in 2018 Xiaomi Mi 7 and 7 Plus will appear earlier, than Xiaomi Mi 6. Official release date may be before or at event MWC 2018. So, we have different information and details about new phones, and in this article we want to share them with you.
Xiaomi Mi 7: Design
There are a lot of renders, and some of them looks really good. First, full screen design is far from new, as competitors produces new bezel-less phones for a long time and very actively.
Xiaomi has already released its Mi Mix 2 in 2017. Thin bezels and full screen – this is what Xiaomi Mi 7 really will award.
The boby will be made from glass on metal base, there’s no need to think anything else, because Xiaomi Mi 7 will have wireless charging. As you know, full metal body does not allow to use wireless charging. At the same time, the renderer does not show the fingerprint reader either front or back. Perhaps it will be located on the side. We don’t believe that Xiaomi will remove fingerprint reader, because it doesn’t have face recognition technology like iPhone X.
Xiaomi Mi7: Display
Surely we can say that 5.65-inch display on Xiaomi Mi 7 will offer 18:9 or 2:1 aspect ratio and Full HD+ resolution. As practice shows, this combination of specifications is the most optimal – the image looks great, and the power consumption does not exceed the norm. However, unlike Xioami Mi 6, new Mi 7 will have AMOLED instead of IPS matrix. Many fans asked for this for a long time.
At the same time, Xiaomi Mi 7 Plus will have 6-inch display with similar specifications. Yes, the difference is only in diagonal.
Xiaomi Mi 7: Performance
Snapdragon 835 is the best chipset of 2017, and next year the most desired processor will be Snapdragon 845 with 8 cores Kryo 385 and frequency up to 2.8 GHz. By the way, this is a record among mobile processors, since previously such a frequency has never been achieved. For the graphics will meet a powerful graphics accelerator Adreno 630 with a frequency of about 700 MHz. The process chipset technology will be 10 nm (the second generation of Low Power Plus). Compared to the predecessor Snapdragon 835, new SD845 will become more powerful by 20-25% with reduced power consumption by 35%. The results are impressive.
As for Antutu, the new chipset should have about 220000 points. By the way, Xiaomi Mi 7 RAM should have at least 6 GB RAM in 4-channel mode, and 64GB of internal memory.
Xiaomi Mi 7: Camera
As it should be, there will be dual camera in Xiaomi Mi 7. Initially, it was said that both sensors will be 19-megapixels Sony IMX400 but later the information was disproved.
At the moment we expect to see in Xiaomi Mi 7 one 12 megapixel photo sensor Sony IMX380 and an additional Sony IMX350 at 20 MP. While it is difficult to say whether Xiaomi Mi7 will have optical zoom or new device will follow by footsteps of OnePlus 5T, but one thing is for sure – Xiaomi Mi 7 will have dual camera.
New smartphone will receive a system of artificial intelligence, which can function on the same principle as in Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. The camera, using AI system, will select the preferred scenario for shooting, while making high-quality night shots and so on. Optical stabilization on both sensors will not go anywhere, and video recording will be possible with a frame rate of up to 60 fps.
Xiaomi Mi 7 and Mi 7 Plus: Battery
It is reported that the original version Xiaomi Mi 7 will get not very large battery of 3200 mAh, but Mi 7 Plus will equip a much more capacious battery of 3500 mAh. Both of them can be charged using wireless technology. At the moment it is too early to talk about battery life on a single charge, but considering the experience of predecessors and overall performance, we can predict Xiaomi Mi 7 and Mi 7 Plus will work from one to two days.

Xiaomi Mi 7 and Mi 7 Plus: Release date and price
No one knows exact release date Xiaomi Mi 7 and Mi 7 Plus. It is very unlikely that before the New Year it will be officially announced. At the same time, Xiaomi Mi 7 and its Plus version can be expected either before MWC 2018, or at the mobile congress conference itself. With prices, if you believe the rumors, look following:
- The price Xiaomi Mi 7 will be $410;
- The price Xiaomi Mi 7 Plus will be $450.
Naturally, I would like to see smaller price tags, but for latest hardware and nice design you have to pay, but the price does not bite too much.
