“The upcoming Xiaomi flagship is speculated to come with a 19:9 screen and an under-display fingerprint scanner”
Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship – the Mi 7 – has been trending on the Internet for a while now thanks to a number of speculations and rumours around it. We have already seen an alleged screenshot of the About Phone section of the phone last month, followed by a leaked firmware revealing its key specifications. The smartphone then appeared on the benchmarking website GeekBench. Now, we have come across what looks like the alleged hands-on images of the forthcoming flagship.
In the leaked images, we can see that the smartphone is flaunting a display notch, so we can expect a taller screen with an aspect ratio of 19:9. Further, the image reveals the Settings screen of the handset, which indicates that it’ll will be running the Android 8.1 Oreo-based MIUI 9.5. The second image gives us a glimpse of the back panel of the phone, revealing the dual-camera module. What’s interesting is that there’s no physical fingerprint scanner on the phone, which concurs with the previous rumours suggesting that the Xiaomi Mi 7 will be flaunting an under-display biometric reader along with the face unlock. However the images are heavily blurred out, and nothing else is visible to ascertain the veracity of the leak.
From the previous reports, the Xiaomi Mi 7 is expected to come with a 5.6-inch display bearing QHD+ resolution. Under the hood, the smartphone is rumoured to have the top-tier Snapdragon 845 SoC mated to Adreno 630 GPU. It is speculated to come in two variants of 6GB RAM + 64GB storage and 8GB RAM + 128GB storage. For imaging, there’s a pair of 16-megapixel snappers with dual-tone LED flash on the rear and a 13-megapixel selfie camera. The smartphone is also rumoured to be powered by a beefy 4,480mAh battery, which is expected to support Qi wireless charging and fast charging.
