Snapdragon 845 Powered Xiaomi Mi 7 to be Launched by Q1 of 2018, Says Reports


Xiaomi is in high that the flagship smartphone series from the company, Mi will be launching its next flagship powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC by the end of Q1 2018. This came as a surprise from the company as Samsung has not yet revealed the smartphone powered by Snapdragon 845. So we can take the guess that Samsung will launch Galaxy S9 powered by Snapdragon 845.

It has not even been six months since its debut and the rumor mill has started talking on some of the key specs and launch period of the Xiaomi Mi 7. An industry insider has revealed on Weibo that the Snapdragon 845 chipset would be powering the Mi 7 flagship phone. As far as Xiaomi Mi 7 release date is concerned, it may get unveiled in the first quarter of the coming year.

Some of the other 2018 flagships like Samsung Galaxy S9 and LG G7 are also rumored to debut earlier in 2018. The post claimed that the Xiaomi Mi 7 will come with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 chipset, featuring a large 6-inch OLED panel, manufactured by Samsung.

While news of Qualcomm’s latest processor making its way to the Mi 7 doesn’t come as a surprise since the phone will be the Chinese manufacturer’s flagship phone, the new display panel would be interesting considering the trend with mobile manufacturers moving towards smaller bezels.

The Xiaomi Mi 6 and Mi 5 have 5-inch displays and the older Xiaomi Mi 4 and Mi 3 smartphones have 5-inch screens. Hence, Xiaomi fans feel that the next-generation Mi series may not feature a huge display of 6 inches. However, its possibility cannot be ruled out as the 6-inch display totting Mi 7 may come with a similar form factor like its predecessor as it is expected to feature a full screen display.
