Actually, Mi has launched a teaser on the Chinese version of Twitter and microblogging website Weibo.
These changes have been introduced with the announcement Snapdragon 700 series, with the first iteration of the family being the Snapdragon 710, according to our previously covered leak. As the company improves each new generation SoC, the improvements are passed on to newer chipset designs too.
It was recently reported that Qualcomm was about to launch a mid-range but high-performance chipset which would be called the Snapdragon 670.
What can essentially be said is that there is no such thing as a Snapdragon 670 and that Qualcomm plans on introducing it as the Snapdragon 710. It is expected to have a dual rear camera setup - featuring a 20-megapixel primary image sensor with an f/2.0 aperture on top, and an 8-megapixel secondary sensor with an f/1.8 aperture. Sirius will also feature a Portrait Mode in camera, which could mean that it will have a dual-camera. Only when the handset hits the market will it be known what other features and specifications the new Mi 7 will offer to its consumers.
Snapdragon 710 seen on two mysterious Xiaomi devices
The leaked TPU case for the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 indicates patterns for a back fingerprint scanner at the centre, simply like what we've seen in its ancestor. If these speculations turn out to be true, then the Mi Max 3 will be a great device with an 18:9 display, a capacious battery with both fast charging and wireless charging features and dual cameras for an improved camera performance. Sirius will have a slightly larger 3,120mAh battery, with the Comet getting a 3,100mAh capacity.
The bottom edge of the case reveals two cutouts for the loudspeaker and a cutout in the middle for the I/O port. We cannot confirm the charging port to be a Type-C or a traditional microUSB by looking at the cutout. We can expect the LED flash to be positioned between the camera sensors.
Another interesting fact is that the notch area is big, thereby indicating the possibility of an integrated facial recognition hardware used by many smartphones including Huawei P20 and Apple.
