The Xiaomi Mi 7 is one of the most anticipated Chinese smartphones this year, and the device has just surfaced in a new concept design. This concept design was published by the ‘Science and Knowledge’ YouTube page, and it is not a leak of the device or anything of the sort, just a concept design created by a third-party source. Having said that, this phone does resemble some Mi 7 leaks we’ve seen thus far, and it looks at least somewhat realistic.
If you take a look at the provided video down below, you will be able to see a phone made out of metal and glass, which sports a display notch, and a dual camera setup on the back. That dual camera setup on the back resembles the design of the dual camera setup on the Redmi Note 5 Pro and the Mi MIX 2S, and the back side of the phone is curved on the sides. The device sports really thin bezels, if not for that display notch, ti would basically be bezel-less, as even the bottom bezel is non-existent. All the physical keys are located on the right-hand side of this phone, and the fingerprint scanner is placed under the display. This YouTube channel actually showed off this concept design in a couple of color variants, including Red, Blue, and Black. Now, the source also shared some spec info to go along with this imaginary design, and we’re looking at high-end specs here, of course.
The source envisioned a 5.8-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) Super AMOLED display for this concept phone, while Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 is included on top of it. The phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 845 64-bit octa-core SoC, while the source also envisioned 6GB / 8GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB of storage for the device. 20 and 16-megapixel snappers are placed on the back of the device, and the main 16-megapixel camera comes with an f/1.7 aperture, and OIS. The secondary camera makes 2x optical zoom a reality, as we’re looking at a telephoto lens here. A 16-megapixel front-facing camera is also included here, and so is a 3.5mm headphone jack. The source also envisioned a 4,480mAh non-removable battery, and Quick Charge 4.0 for this concept smartphone. That is more or less it. It is worth noting, however, that the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S launched about a week ago, so the Mi 7 will probably arrive later than expected, perhaps at the end of summer, but we’re only guessing at this point. In any case, while we’re waiting for the phone to launch, concept designs, such as this one, are a good way to pass the time.
