Xiaomi's upcoming Mi 7 flagship may be called Mi 8

As a successor to the last year's Mi 6, Xiaomi is reportedly looking to launch its 2018 flagship soon.
The company's CEO Lei Jun has already hinted that the Mi 7 will feature an under-display fingerprint sensor.
Moreover, earlier reports had suggested that the phone will be powered by Snapdragon 845 processor, coupled with 6 GB RAM and will run on Android 8.0 Oreo.
Xiaomi will reportedly launch an 8th-anniversary edition phone as well
According to reports, Xiaomi will launch an 8th-anniversary edition smartphone alongside its 2018 flagship Mi 7. Leaks suggest that the anniversary edition phone will be the highlight of the launch event and is rumored to be unveiled by the end of this month.
