Note that in addition to the Xiaomi Mi 7, also the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S will arrive in late March with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. It will also come with Google’s Android Oreo operating system. Also, it with the own interface of the brand, the MIUI in its version 9. The latter will be a phablet, large smartphone coming soon to the market.
Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S arrives on March 27, also with Android Oreo
According to some rumours, the launch of this Mi MIX 2S will serve to keep the media and the public interested in the brand. This while the manufacturer prepares the Xiaomi Mi 7 to win consumer preference as soon as it is announced. This could be the first Xiaomi smartphone to bring a fingerprint reader under the screen.
This technology is not yet fully ready for large-scale use and, for example, does not work if the user applies a film to the smartphone screen. On the other hand, with a launch between May and June, the Chinese manufacturer could devote itself completely to the development of this new means of authentication for the smartphone. After Vivo, Xiaomi may be the manufacturer to generalize this technology. We hope so!
Fingerprint reader on the Xiaomi Mi 7 screen?
It would indeed be a huge asset for this Xiaomi Mi 7, beyond, of course, its powerful processor Snapdragon 845. Moreover, the presence of Android Oreo also comes as no surprise. It is normal for the Android manufacturer to (finally) use the latest version of this operating system. It will have the brand’s own interface, MIUI in version 9.

We can also count on a 6.01-inch screen OLED technology on the Xiaomi Mi 7. It is said to be a panel produced by South Korean Samsung. Also unsurprising will be its 18: 9 or 19: 9 ratio to accommodate the monkey, notch or cutout at the top of the smartphone screen.
Finally, it is also not surprising the presence of wireless charging for the battery of this smartphone. We will have here this new feature that will allow you to put the smartphone to charge. This, of course, if you have a loading base for that purpose.
It is believed that the battery of the smartphone has a capacity of 3,170mAh. It will also have fast charging in addition to wireless charging. The device will have a Type C USB port, without the 3.5mm audio jack (probably).
