New Xiaomi Mi 7 Renders Surface Online – Shows On-Screen Fingerprint Scanner

Earlier this month, Xiaomi CEO – Lei Jun, revealed at the Snapdragon conference in the United States that the upcoming Xiaomi flagship smartphone will use the Snapdragon 845 chipset. We all know that he is talking about the Xiaomi Mi 7 which is scheduled to arrive early next year. Since then, there have been numerous reports and speculations regarding this smartphone. Now, a new render of this smartphone has appeared online and it revealed some features that are not consistent with previous renders.

The first noticeable feature in the front of this device is the on-screen fingerprint sensor. This is quite surprising because recently Synaptics which has gone into the massive production of this feature confirmed that vivo will be the first manufacturer to sport this feature followed by Huawei. There was no mention of Xiaomi which triggered speculations that Xiaomi will concentrate on developing 3D facial recognition feature on the Mi 7. This render shows a completely bezel-less display which is much better than previous renders. On the rear, it has a horizontally arranged dual camera with the LED flash lodged towards the left of the camera.

From previous reports, the Xiaomi Mi 7 will sport a 5.65-inch display with 18:9 full-screen design, dual glass, metal frame design, support for wireless charging and other functions. In the camera department, it has a 12MP + 20MP rear camera combination of IMX380 + IMX350 sensor. It is reported to come with 6GB of RAM which will probably be the least RAM size as other variants will have larger RAM’s. As for the battery, speculations have it that the Mi 7 will use a 3200 mAh battery. This device will cost about 2699 Yuan ($408). Note that there are also reports of a plus model which is believed to come with a larger 6.01-inch screen, 3500 mAh battery and would cost 2999 Yuan ($454).




I have been a strong follower of Android devices since the release of Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Right now, Chinese tech completely fascinates me because they are probably the only manufacturers who tries to merge budget and specs.
