It has already been revealed that the Xiaomi Mi 7 will come with Qualcomm's upcoming flagship processor, Snapdragon 845.

It is likely that Qualcomm is working closely with Microsoft also, with the Snapdragon 845 processor's features ideal for the next generation of the Microsoft HoloLens, offering more power than the Intel Atom processor now driving the headset for example, and offering the potential of replacing custom silicon Microsoft needed to develop to support Mixed Reality with the Intel hardware. It goes without saying that the forthcoming flagship phones releasing in 2018 will be fueled by Snapdragon 845.

This year, Xiaomi announced the launch of the Xiaomi Mi 6 in April. Now a Chinese website, NewsDriver via GizmoChina has leaked more juicy information for the Xiaomi Mi 7. Before the launch of the device, there were speculations that the company would release the Mi 6 Plus as well. The Xiaomi Mi 7 is expected to be the first Snapdragon 845 phone by a Chinese firm. In addition to consuming 30% less power than the Snapdragon 835 chipset, the new component employs Qualcomm's third-generation AI platform that can offer scene and object recognition while on the move. Both the phones are rumored to support 18:9 aspect ratio. Again next year, the Mi 7 Plus is expected to share the stage with the Mi 7. The Mi 7 also will be packed with a 3950mAh battery and support dual-SIM dual-standby. Both the phones are likely to arrive with metal and glass combination design. The photography experience on the Mi 7 duo will be enriched through AI.

Since Xiaomi is expected to receive adequate stock of Snapdragon 845 for Mi 7 and Mi 7 Plus, it may not have any problem in making both phones available for purchase at the same time. The Xiaomi Mi 7 is said to come in two variants - 6GB RAM with 128GB internal storage and 8GB RAM with 256GB internal storage. Do let us know your views on the same in comment section below.
