The Xiaomi Mi7 Will Feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845, 6GB RAM, Edge To Edge Display & More Suggests Rumor
As 2017 comes to an end, it’s time to start taking a look at what the future holds. The year gave us a lot of upgrades in the flagship smartphone world. In fact, the devices we saw this year are very different from the previous year. The biggest upgrade is edge to edge displays, which remove the thorn from a lot of users’ sides. Bezels are a bare minimum now and to make things better, everything is powered by 10nm processors. Absent from the year’s high profile launches is Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi. Today, we’ve got more details for the company’s next flagship smartphone. Take a look below to find out more.
First Rumor For The Xiaomi Mi7 Suggests An Edge To Edge Display, Next Generation Snapdragon 845
This year’s Snapdragon 835 made waves at the time of launch, primarily due to 10nm FinFET. But Qualcomm’s latest and greatest didn’t deliver the way we expected it to. The processor, housing the company’s ‘custom’ Kryo cores, is in fact based more on ARM’s chip designs. While no hard feelings against the British chip house, Qualcomm really needs to be more innovative. It certainly has the resources for it.
Moving forward, a fresh Chinese rumor claims that Xiaomi will launch its Mi7 next year. The smartphone will feature Qualcomm’s next generation Snapdragon 845. No other details for the processor are provided. In addition to the Snapdragon, Xiaomi will also upgrade its flagship smartphone to an edge to edge OLED display, measuring 6″ diagonal. Samsung will manufacture this display.
A rear dual camera setup is also mentioned in the rumor, with a 16MP resolution. Xiaomi will be the last manufacturer to use the technology in its smartphone, before it becomes common in the smartphone world. 6GB RAM will supplement the Snapdragon 845 and the smartphone will house a rear fingerprint sensor. The rumor also goes on to mention that the Chinese manufacturer is interested in facial recognition. However, it believe that the technology isn’t ready for mass usage and requires further development.
Finally, the price tag for the Mi7 is listed as CNY 2,699, which translates into approximately $400. This isn’t much especially given the specifications. This is the first rumor for the Xiaomi Mi7, so take it with a grain of salt. Things will become clearer as multiple sources corroborate details. Thoughts?
