Everything that’s rumoured about Xiaomi Mi 7
The previous reports suggested that Xiaomi and Qualcomm are planning to incorporate the next high-end chipset called as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC which will be introduced in 2018’s flagship smartphones.
Moreover, the upcoming chipset is speculated to be optimised by the two aforementioned companies. So, the option of the use of Snapdragon 845 SoC in Mi 7 is convincing.

Xiaomi Mi 7 will flaunt a larger OLED display with minimal bezels at edges. Furthermore, it will also feature 18:9 aspect ratio which is becoming a standard for flagship devices. By going for such display, the upcoming Xiaomi mobile is expected to not have a fingerprint scanner at the front. However, the company might introduce a unique in-display fingerprint sensor on the handset.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC is believed to be manufactured using 10nm LPE FinFET method. In addition, the chipset is supposed to be competent to support download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps. Recently, the Chinese mobile maker has been added as a member of WPC (Wireless Power Consortium). So, the phone could support wireless charging.
The previous reports also suggested that the device will come with glass ceramic rear panel. Lastly, the phone could pack a dual rear camera setup.
