He also said that all the flagship Xiaomi smartphones launched till date came with Snapdragon chipsets.  The Mi 6 launched in early 2017 is the first Snapdragon 835 powered smartphone to launch in the Chinese market.

With the Mi 7, we also expect the company to follow the same trend even in 2018. Unlike the Mi6, the company might also launch the upcoming Mi 7 in the India market.

The device also offers stereo speakers placed on the top and bottom of the device. On the connectivity front, the Mi 6 includes the basic options along with latest Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and USB Type-C 3.0 port.

However, the company decided to remove the 3.5mm audio jack on this device. Apart from the glass back body, the device is also launched in the ceramic and stainless steel variants. It measures 7.45 mm thickness and weighs 168 grams. The current-gen Snapdragon 835 is used by all the major the Android smartphone manufacturers for their flagship devices. In 2018, we will be seeing the Snapdragon 845 powered flagship Android smartphones.
