China's Xiaomi to attend MWC 2018, is a Mi 7 flagship announcement likely?
China's Xiaomi is slowly but steadily amping up its attempts to successfully penetrate the western market, and while its official presence in the US is still a mirage, the prolific device manufacturer has not abandoned its desires to become a household name.
It would seem that Xiaomi will be attending the important MWC trade show in Barcelona, Spain, this year, which will mark its first presence on such a large and important expo. The company was heavily rumored to attend last year's MWC, but ultimately skipped it.
Xiaomi listed in MWC 2018's agenda
Xiaomi is now listed as an MWC 2018 attendee and will be situated at Stand 6B30 in Hall 6, though we are not aware if the company's planning to host a keynote yet - the MWC 2018 agenda is not complete yet and we doubt the so-called Apple of China will miss the opportunity.
One thing that could make its presence at MWC 2018 that much more interesting is the rumor that its next flagship, the Snapdragon 845-powered Xiaomi Mi 7, could be unveiled on stage provided that the company really hosts a keynote event. Judging by all the rumors we've heard about that one so far, we could be facing a rather interesting phone that will make the top flagship scene even more heated: an all-screen design, a 6-inch Samsung-made AMOLED display, 3D face recognition, and Qi wireless charging are merely the most interesting rumored features aside from the suggested use of the Snapdragon 845 chip and 6GB of RAM on deck.
With LG obviously skipping the opportunity to announce its next flagship at MWC 2018, Xiaomi could potentially be the unlikely headliner that will make the expo as intriguing as last year's one.
