Xiaomi Mi 7 Hands-On Review

Once again Xiaomi is ready to jump on the 18:9 borderless display movement with its upcoming device named as Xiaomi Mi 7. It is expected to be announced in standard and Plus models and perhaps arrives in June. Xiaomi Mi 7 rumors are beginning to accumulate and according to that, the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 7 smartphone will be one of the first to use Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and a colossal 8GB of RAM. Moreover, it is so astonishing to know that Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi 7 will boast a fingerprint scanner embedded in the display just like upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

However, it’s not surprising that Xiaomi is going to announce its next flagship device soon, but rather a matter of ‘when’. Whatever the case may be, Xiaomi Mi 7 itself has been doing rounds on the web unveiling some instead of juicy details about the phone.

Xiaomi Mi 7 Release Date:

Xiaomi Mi 7’s predecessor ‘Xiaomi Mi 6’ was released in China on 19 April 2017 and then began shipping in June. So, we hope to see Xiaomi Mi 7 announced at a similar time 2018 as Xiaomi follows an annual release schedule for all major smartphone makers.

Unlike China, Xiaomi Mi 7 Release Date in Australia will also be the same. Recent rumors and Weibo Post from industry insider Mocha RQ are pointing it to a June launch and an embedded scanner is a reason for this.

Xiaomi Mi 7 Price:

Pricing is absolutely a saucy part for everyone, but we’re running short on information, unfortunately. The list of Mi series is going to be succeeded with upcoming Mi 7 flagship. It is expected to boast top of the line hardware for under $500 price.

As far as the Australian markets are concerned, Xiaomi Mi 7 Prices in Australia are yet to be announced. So, you should wait for a little more as things are pretty blurred right now especially in terms of prices.

Xiaomi Mi 7 Design:

A full screen and slim bezels – that is really what Xiaomi Mi 7 will award. The phone will come with a glass body on the metal base (looks premium),there is nothing to think anything else because Xiaomi Mi 7 will flaunt wireless charging. At the same time, the renderer doesn’t show the fingerprint scanner either back or front. It means, “in-screen fingerprint scanner” rumors will turn out true (amazing).

Based on an image posted on Weibo, Xiaomi Mi 7 will have thin bezels, rounded corners and a dual camera configuration making it a stylish smartphone.

Xiaomi Mi 7 Display:

The smartphone appears to boast an impressive 5.65-inches FHD Super AMOLED display with 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution. Interestingly, Xiaomi Mi 7’s display is crisp and vibrant and is paired with gorgeous viewing angles ensuring a unique visual experience when watching videos and playing games.

As practice shows, a great combination of specs is the most optimal, the image looks fantastic and the power consumption doesn’t exceed the norm.

Xiaomi Mi 7 Performance:

As far as the performance is concerned, Xiaomi Mi 7 is powered by an Octa-core Snapdragon 845 chipset along with 6/8GB of RAM to deliver a smooth and flawless performance even when having extensive memory apps and graphics enriched games.

The phone is also well equipped to handle your multitasking requirements without showing a sign of lag.

Xiaomi Mi 7 Camera:

For photographers, Xiaomi Mi 7 is definitely a pleasure as it features dual 16MP camera configuration which is paired with a dual-LED flash handling low-lit shots. Firstly, it was said that the device will be loaded with a dual 19MP sensors, but later the information was disapproved.

The back camera is also equipped with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) which adds stability to your image. On the other hand, video calling and selfies are assisted by an 8MP FaceTime camera too.

Battery and Storage:

Xiaomi Mi 7 is fuelled by a non-removable Li-Lon 4480mAh long-lasting battery which is good enough to last all day long with moderate use. Are you a heavy user? Don’t worry! The battery comes with fast charging support enables you to charge your phone up to 50% just in a couple of minutes.

To install applications and store data, the Xiaomi Mi 7 ships with an onboard storage space of 64GB and 128GB. Sadly, the storage is fixed and can be expended no further.

Platform and Connectivity:

As for connectivity, Xiaomi Mi 7 is bundled with a bunch of connectivity options such as 4G, dual SIM support, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2 and a micro USB Type-C port. The smartphone runs MIUI 8 based on the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system.

 Since the Mi 7 is still not official, it is too prompt to discuss Xiaomi Mi 7’s onboard features, prices, and its Australia launch.  However, if you are considering it to be as your next flagship device, believe us you won’t be disappointed. But how about if you could wait for a little more? Let us spend some more time with the Xiaomi Mi 7 to make a final judgment. In the meantime, let us know your thoughts regarding Xiaomi Mi 7 in the comments section below.
