Xiaomi’s Mi 6 is not even five months old and we are already hearing about its successor. According to a Weibo leakster, the Chinese company is planning to introduce the Mi 7 in the first quarter of the next year.
The phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s still unofficial Snapdragon 845 processor. Snapdragon 845 is believed to be Qualcomm’s flagship mobile processor for the year 2018.
The Xiaomi Mi 7 is reportedly going to feature a 6-inch OLED display instead of LCD that Mi-series phones have typically used.
Other specifications are a mystery at this point, which is quite normal given we are still at least four to five months away from the actual release of Mi 7. (via)
