It would not be the first time that a Chinese OEM has beaten the likes of Samsung and LG in being the first smartphone to sport the most powerful flagship chip from Qualcomm for the year. LeEco had done it before and it looks like Xiaomi could be doing the same in 2018. According to a latest rumor on Weibo, the Mi 7 will be released in January and probably before the S9 or the LG G7. Now, one needs to keep in mind that a separate rumor has predicted that both the flagships form LG and Samsung will also be making appearances in January-February. Yes, things are getting very confusing right now, but what can be said for certain is the fact that all the three handsets will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (unannounced) SoC.


According to the rumor, the Xiaomi Mi 7 could also be sporting a 6-inch OLED panel and 6GB/8GB of RAM. Since traditionally, Mi flagship range phones have all been rather small, we would have to guess that either the rumor is misinformed or Xiaomi is going for a borderless display, just like the S8 or Xiaomi's own Mi Mix 2!

According to a report by SamMobile, the next flagship chipset from Qualcomm which will likely replace the current gen flagship Snapdragon 835, is already in the process of development. Samsung will allegedly be working with Qualcomm to make this one as well, just like it did with the SD 835. This SoC will reportedly be powering the Galaxy S9 in 2018 and not the Note 8 which will come out later in 2017.


The chipset which might be called the Snapdragon 845 could also be mass manufactured by Samsung in 2018, although there's a chance that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) might also get the contract.


It is to be noted that Samsung had also announced a month ago that they will be producing 6nm and 8nm chips in the near future as well, which offer an even better power-efficiency than what has been achieved by the already impressive first generation 10nm chips; the SD 835 and the Exynos 8895. If you thought the Galaxy S8 was impressive, wait till the Note 8 and the Galaxy S9 hits the market in late 2017 and early 2018 respectively.
