Xiaomi's flagships are usually among the first to be released in the year, and it looks like the next-gen offering, the Mi 7, could be launched within the next few months. The device is touted to launch alongside a plus-sized version, with both coming with tasty price tags and top of the line features.

Qualcomm announced the launch of its new Snapdragon 845 SoC last week, with the chipset manufacturer confirming that the next-gen Xiaomi flagship, the Mi 7, would feature the next-gen SoC. More details of the Mi 7 are creeping out of the woodwork now, though, with word on the grapevine claiming that it will sport the trending full-screen display.

Xiaomi are no newcomers to the full-screen display scene, as the company's Mi Mix may have been the device to push the aesthetic towards the mainstream market. The Mi 7 will follow in its footsteps, although we wouldn't expect it to copy the Mix series' level of "bezel-less-ness". We expect the flagship to look something closer to the OnePlus 5T, though, with minimal side bezels and an 18:9 aspect ratio.

According to the report, the Mi 7 will sport a 5.65-inch display, larger than the 5.15-inch ones on previous devices in the series, but with about the same feel in hand due to the different aspect ratio. It's expected to launch alongside a larger Mi 7 Plus, which will sport a 6.01-inch display. Do note that there has been no direct Plus version for a device in the series before this, so if this turns out to be true, it would be out of the norm.

Other than the display, the devices are said to ship with 6 GB of RAM,  dual rear cameras, wireless charging functionality, and a glass or ceramic body. The regular Mi 7 is said to feature a 3200 mAh battery and will cost about US$410, while the Plus version will be powered by a 3500 mAh battery and will come with a US$450 price tag, both of which would be incredible deals.
