In line with the earlier leaks, the live images of the display panel – which can also be just screen protectors of the so-called Mi 7 – suggest that the handset will feature a notch display design. The trend of the cut-out on top of a display has caught on lately, with brands like OPPO and Vivo already following the footsteps of the iPhone X (review) last year. Unfortunately, the leaked images don’t reveal anything apart from the notch display design on the alleged handset.
