Xiaomi is playing catch-up with us. With just over a week to go before the big event that will take place in Shenzhen, it is not clear to us if there will be a Xiaomi Mi 7 , if what they will present will be the Xiaomi Mi 8 or if we will have both smartphones of a single stockade as Apple did with the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X.
If we make a compilation of all the material seen during the last weeks, we can see screen designs with a notch of considerable dimensions that would serve to house the 3D facial recognition system of the company , although latest filtered cases it seems that they refer to a device with a smaller notch and not so populated with sensors.
All this points to that, one of two, or some of the materials seen are false, or most likely, that we see a Xiaomi M7 with a Xiaomi Mi 8 (or two versions of the Mi 8). Now some photographs have appeared that would show us what appears to be discarded prototypes of the Xiaomi Mi 7 , although it could also be a new smartphone that would arrive on the same day May 31.
The Xiaomi Mi 8, according to the information managed so far, will be a smartphone that will integrate a screen of 6 inches with Full-HD + resolution and that will have as a center of operations a SoC Snapdragon 845 , which will be accompanied by memory configurations of between 6 and 8 GB of capacity (LPDDR4X) and with storage ranging from 64 to 512 GB ( these could be your prices ).
The main feature of this smartphone will be the presence of a generous notch full of sensors along with very small screen bezels. The double camera is taken for granted at this point (especially after seeing the covers mentioned above).
Although Xiaomi tends to show a high level of quality in its designs, it seems that the first prototypes of the phone made use of a somewhat coarser chassis with the rounded corners and some bevels that would protrude a little from the screen.
The back of this Xiaomi Mi 8 would be made of metal, and would include a double camera system In a vertical position located in the upper left corner of the device, similar to how Apple does. Yes, the notch would be much simpler, and would be limited to include a camera with flash and a speaker.
The name of this device would be D1SP1-1393 , and its lower edge would be reduced, although we would not be before one of the best screen ratios in the market.
Along with these photos of the Xiaomi Mi 8, there has also appeared a curious video where you can see a Xiaomi smartphone with a transparent area on the back that allows us to see part of its interior.
This device seems to be much more refined, be somewhat wider than those we saw with the filtered covers and say that it has a notch capable of accommodating the 3D facial recognition system and that we have already talked about on other occasions.
In the photos and in the video that we link you you can see the Snapdragon 845 processor that will integrate the Xiaomi Mi 8, and we could also appreciate something else, the absence of a front or rear fingerprint reader, which would confirm the presence of a sensor under the screen .
How many doubts to solve a few days after its launch. It is clear that Xiaomi has many things ready for us and that we are going to end this month in a frenetic way, in order to be able to offer you all the news of this increasingly popular Chinese manufacturer.
