There are whispers that Xiaomi has postponed the launch of the high-end Mi 7, pushing back its global debut from February at this year’s Mobile World Congress to a later month.
The Mi Mix 2S, the refresh of last year’s Mi Mix 2 smartphone, might hit the stage in its place, but there’s no certainty of that at this time.
Whatever the case, it hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from churning. The latest word is that the Xiaomi Mi 7 could introduce major improvements to the phone’s RAM and battery life.
A leaked screenshot has revealed some juicy hardware details of the Mi 7. According to the image, the upcoming Chinese flagship will get 8GB of RAM and a beefy 4,480mAh battery.
Keep in mind that its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi 6, maxes out at 6GB RAM and comes with a 3,350mAh battery, which can consistently get us past the first day. It’s possible the Mi 7 will offer even longer battery mileage on a single charge.
We already know that the Xiaomi Mi 7 will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 845 processor and will come with wireless charging. Other rumored specs include a 5.6-inch borderless display at full resolution and a pair of 16-megapixel cameras.
The only thing that is suspect is the phone’s alleged software version. MIUI 8.1 is old news; most Xiaomi phones, even really dated ones, already run MIUI 9. Then again, let’s not rule out the possibility this could simply be a case of misreporting.
