Xiaomi Mi7 is reportedly coming with a 6.0- inch Bezel-Less OLED display made by Samsung.
The Chinese tech-giant Xiaomi has announced the launch of its latest product Mi 7 in India, sometime in early February 2018. The world’s fifth largest smartphone maker had launched its Mi 5X in September, amidst much fanfare and media attention. The Mi7 will offer stiff competition to other smartphones having similar features, such as OnePlus 5T and iPhone X. Chinese reports have suggested that Mi7 will have a price tag of CNY 2699; approximately Rs.26,600.
Let’s have a look at some of the premium features of this latest device, which has become the talk of the market.
The new Mi7 is reportedly coming with a 6.0- inch Bezel-Less OLED display made by Samsung. Bezel-a word which describes the outer frame of computer monitors, smartphones and other computing devices. Its primary function is to hold the screen in place and prevent damage to the touch-screen. With new technological advancements, smartphone manufacturers are increasingly opting for a bezel-less design. Big manufacturers are incorporating software that makes phones ignore non-intentional inputs such as; a user simply resting his fingertips on the touch screen. Xiaomi has already launched products like Mi Mix 2 in the past which comes with a bezel-less design. The Mi7 boasts of a high-resolution display of 2560 x 1440 pixels and a pixel density of 401 pixels per inch.
The new display is likely to have 18:9 aspect ratio, which is at par with all modern-day flagship products. Other features to look out for include; a rear fingerprint sensor.
Xiaomi Mi7 has dual-camera lens both with a resolution of 16 megapixels. One of the lenses is reportedly having a special low-light module with an aperture of f/1.7. This feature will help it to give competition to the facial recognition technology in iPhone X. The device is being powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, with 6 to 8 GB of RAM, and an Adreno 540 GPU. The internal memory space is 32 to 64 GB, which is expandable up to 128 GB through a microSD card slot.
Xiaomi has reportedly joined the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC); after there were reports of being included in the WPC member list, on WPC site. WPC is a multinational technology consortium which is known for its promotion of adopting interface standard Qi. This interface defines standards for wireless power transfer, using inductive charging. We can expect the new Mi7 to support this feature. The phone comes with a non-removable Li-Po 3500 mAh battery with fast charging support. USB Type-C, Bluetooth, GPS , Wi-fi and dual sim facility are some of the connectivity options being expected.
Xiaomi has beat Samsung in the below Rs.10,000 smartphone category. It has to prove its mettle in its higher-end variants where, its performance has been poor so far due to stiff competition from brands like Huawei and OnePlus. The new Xiaomi Mi7 might just be the product that makes it a leader in this segment.
