In May, a great deal of information on the Xiaomi Mi7 was leaked on the Internet. Based on the previously shared photo of Xiaomi Mi7’s screen protector, we can confirm that the phone will have a full-screen display with an iPhone X-like notch and support 3D facial recognition.
From the latest released picture of the screen protector, Xiaomi Mi7’s overall shape seems to be more squarish and it can be held in one hand. The top of the screen confirms the use of an iPhone X-like notch, while the smartphone has retained its small chin from previous models.
From the leaked photos of Mi7’s protective case, we see that it has a vertically aligned dual camera system on the back without a fingerprint recognition button. It is no doubt that the Mi 7 series will feature a 3D facial recognition technology and an in-display fingerprint scanner. As Lei Jun previously implied on his Weibo social media account, Mi7 will be equipped with a fingerprint unlock function.
In addition, a tech blogger announced on May 7 that the Xiaomi Mi7 will be released at the end of this month. However, the information still needs to be confirmed. Mi Mix2S has just been released for less than three months and it is already out of stocks online. We expect that the Xiaomi Mi7 would not be released until this August. The price will be higher than the previous generations, and the starting price may be around 2799 to 3,000 yuan ($440-$471).
This is all the information we currently have on Xiaomi Mi7’s design and appearances. The actual smartphone due for release could have slight differences from the picture, possibly with a slightly wider frame.
According to previous designs, the iPhone X-like notch will last a few generations. We can imagine that most of the smartphones produced by Chinese manufacturers in the upcoming years will have the notch design, will you still resist the notch then?
