Xiaomi, having ruled the Indian smartphone scenario for quite a long time, has come forward to launch the Xiaomi Mi 7 that is expected to possess all the features that a premium quality smartphone would have. Relying upon the Android v7.0 Nougat, this smartphone offers a beautiful combination of the efficient camera unit, processor, storage capacity and 3500mAh battery.
The Xiaomi Mi 7 would be a premium flagship phone from the house of Xiaomi, which is now more Indian than Chinese. Their Mi 7, when released in India, will be competing against the odds of the OnePlus 5T, Nokia 8, and LG V30 Plus. Let's explore whether the Xiaomi Mi 7 specifications would be worth it or not.
21MP + 13MP camera, Android Nougat, 6GB RAM, 3500 mAh battery
No expandable storage, No Dual SIM
Design and Display
Apart from being expected to appear as a slim yet compact killer phone, this smartphone features a 5.6-inch display that enables the user to enjoy the ultra HD 4K resolution. The capacitive display coupled with 773 ppi pixel density is the prime strength of this smartphone. This configuration is far ahead of being impressive. The best that the competition has to offer is a ppi of 500 and the Mi 7 stays way ahead on this curve with its futuristic specifications.
The Mi 7 price in India is expected to be around 40,000 upon launch and in this price range it competes with the OnePlus 3T, Moto Z2, Honor V10 and a few others and none of them come close to the specifications of the display unit that the Xiaomi Mi 7 has to offer. Thus, making this a device that one should go for, to binge watch serials or play high graphic content games.
Making the daunting task of capturing picturesque shots easy, the Xiaomi Mi 7 boasts of having a 21MP primary camera and a 13MP selfie camera. Paving the path for the user to record high-resolution video 3840x2160 @ 30fps, 1920x1080 @ 30fps, 1280x720 @ 120fps, this smartphone also features digital zoom, auto flash, face detection and touch to focus Other features that must be mentioned are High Dynamic Range mode and continuous shooting.
The storage for this upcoming mobile from the house of Xiaomi is not pleasing. The phone features an internal storage space of 64GB and does not support the use of dependable storage. This will surely drive avid Android users away from this masterpiece. Using Google Photos and Mi's cloud storage efficiently should be able to make you have a comfortable experience even with 64GB of storage space.
The Li-ion battery present in the Xiaomi Mi7 has a capacity of 3500mAh and can’t be removed at all. The standby durations and talk time numbers are not out yet. Stay tuned. That said, a 3500 mAh battery seems adequate for the price margin the Mi 7 will be competing in and the competing devices too, offer in the same range. The presence of quick charge seems to be the icing on the cake. It is unlikely that Xiaomi would launch their flagship with quick charge or fast charge, but what seems to be unclear is that the version of fast charge that it will be sporting.
Designed to function with the help of Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 MSM8998, the Xiaomi Mi7 has a Quad-core processor that takes pride in working on the Android v7.0 Nougat. The Adreno 540 GPU assists the processor to work at the frequency rate of 2.4 GHz. The Android Nougat also helps one to access games that have sharper graphics and to save battery power as well. The processor looks sharp on the Mi 7. Multitasking and multi-window switching should be a lag-free experience with these specs. The key is to make Xiaomi Mi 7 specifications future-proof!
The processor specifications are on par with what the premium phones that compete in the same cader. The 6GB RAM makes the Mi 7 a worthy competition to the Asus Zenfone AR, OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, and other devices in the market that offer an immersive processor. That said, there are devices like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus that offer 256GB storage variants, maybe implementing things like these could help Xiaomi be a major game changer in the Android smartphones space.
Even though this smartphone doesn’t have any expandable memory card slot or a removable battery, the Mi7 Xiaomi is undoubtedly one of the best premium smartphones available in the market that can satiate the need of possessing an outstanding quality phone that is adept at offering speed, storage, and fantastic camera quality. It also features 2G/3G/4G//WiFi connectivity and offers single sim which users may find inconvenient.
Why should I buy Xiaomi Mi 7 in India to purchase when its out?
The phone definitely takes everything one would expect from a premium smartphone and Xiaomi has left no stone unturned to ensure that. Neither, the Xiaomi Mi 7 price in India nor its release date has been unveiled yet by the manufacturer. That apart, this phone is a winner if you are looking for something with big RAM and excellent cameras. The Xiaomi Mi 7 expected price seems reasonable and this seems to be by the lowest priced phone in the category of premium smartphones in India that come with 6GB RAM, Android Oreo, and High-resolution dual rear cameras.
What's the update on the Xiaomi Mi 7 release date in India?
Xiaomi did not bring its Mi 6 in India for obvious reasons, as it was believed that the flagship market is not yet ready for India. But in 2018 that might change for Xiaomi, which has heavily invested in the country's smartphone growth. They already have made Mi Mix 2 available in the country and it is about time the Mi flagship phone makes a comeback with Xiaomi Mi 7. Will you buy Mi 7, if it were to launch in India?
