And if we told you that what we said so far about the future top of the range, the Xiaomi Mi 7, was all false? Well, I'm not going to say this but apparently a few days before the presentation event (even if there's still an official date), the future device of the Chinese company peeps on the well-known store Gearbest.com showing itself in a decidedly unusual dress, totally in contrast to what the rumors have affirmed to date.

In fact, as you can see from the cover image the alleged Xiaomi Mi 7 shows with a design total display but without notch. Yeah, the famous notch that in this period has accompanied a series of clones of iPhone X, it seems that on the top of the Chinese range is absent. In its place only one hole for the selfie rooms, which according to the data sheet appeared on the site do not drop the rumors that they wanted equipped the facial release in 3D on the 7 Mi.
It remains instead confirmed the release with fingerprints located under the display, although it should be emphasized that the image is not absolutely official and refers to a render, which from memory seems to have appeared on rare occasions. So why does Gearbest publish an image on its store that theoretically has nothing to do with the "real" images and renderings that have appeared until today, using instead of a render that has been rejected by many?
Xiaomi Mi 7 appears on Gearbest: and say goodbye to the notch
Also from the page of the site we also discover that there will be two variants of the Xiaomi Mi 7, ie the plus and an unspecified, perhaps the standard even if judging the "provisional" price should be better than the plus, but in reality there are elements in addition to the photo render. On the plus version instead Gearbest inserts some information like the fact that the device will be a Dual Sim (nano format) and that we will find a 6,01 inch display with Full HD + resolution, but we will also find double-band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU, 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory.
Absent, however, the memory expansion, the 20 band and the 3,5 mm jack replaced by the USB Type-C input with charging function, OTG and to transmit audio through an adapter. Dimensions equal to153,3 x 68 x 9,5 mm and weight of 155 grams, but also one battery from 3500 mAh are the other information that the store provides us, even if the most succulent ones concern the composition of the dual rear camera from 20 megapixel on both lenses while also on the front we will find a double unit but this time from 12 megapixel. What is behind this story? Emulation spirit to Oneplus (see OP6 history on Amazon Germany) or the store's PR know something more?
