The Xiaomi Mi 8, or formerly known as the Mi 7 has been a part of multiple leaks of late. It is rumoured that Xiaomi is planning to launch the Mi 8 to celebrate the company’s eighth anniversary, hence will skip the Mi 7 moniker. This strategy is very similar to Apple’s, which launched the iPhone X to celebrate 10 years of iPhones, instead of launching an iPhone 9. It appears that this won’t be the only thing in common between the Mi 8 and iPhone X.
A new image posted on the Chinese social media website, Weibo reveals an alleged prototype of the Xiaomi Mi 8. The image shows a smartphone in line with many rumours and renders, with an iPhone X style notch thin [...]

The Xiaomi Mi 7 has been in the news ever since the company decided to not launch it at MWC 2018. Xiaomi instead launched the Mi MIX 2s and it appears that the Mi 7 won’t launch very soon.

The Xiaomi Mi 7 will have a notch, making it a first for Xiaomi. The trend of the notch has had a polarising response so far where some people can’t stand it while the others believe it doesn’t look half bad. The smartphone makers have certainly grown accustomed to it as more companies embrace the notch. But, the Mi 7 could be the only Android smartphone that will truly justify having a notch on the display.

Long before the iPhone X was launched in September 2017, there were rumours about Touch ID making way for facial recognition. That facial recognition system turned out to be Face ID, something that has gained a lot of positive reviews over the course of time. For Apple to go bezel-less, it had to get rid of Touch ID since there were no bezels to fit the home button. Apple refused to move Touch ID to the back of the iPhone hence, Face ID was introduced. Since then, Apple has admitted that Face ID is the future and even the 2018 lineup of iPhones will all have Face ID. Android smartphone makers, on the other hand, have so far tried to imitate what Apple did with the iPhone X. Now, it [...]
Xiaomi was earlier expected to launch the Mi 7 at an event during the Mobile World Congress 2018.
