Latest Mi 7 leak pegs Samsung as the only notch holdout in the top 5 Android makers
Look, Ma, another notch! If you thought it's above and beyond the current 4th-largest Android phone maker to go the way of the notch, you may be sorely mistaken, as the latest Xiaomi Mi 7 leak shows a big fat top bezel cutout at the front. If Xiaomi's newest flagship materializes like that, it will leave only Samsung as the Last of the Notchikans. LG has it on the G7, Huawei on the P20-series, and Oppo on plenty.

Apart from the notch-y front, the Mi 7 seems very much like the Mi Mix 2s at the back, as you can see below, but much smaller, which would be welcome news in this day and age of 6-inchers everywhere. The finger scanner is placed on the back, so you don't have to stretch down all the way each time you want to look something up when holding the phone with one hand, so that's one more plus for the Mi 7's ergonomics. 

The handset looks pretty in its beige glass (or maybe ceramic, like on the Mix 2s) body, and the dual vertical camera is likely the Mi Mix 2s kit, with optical zoom, and other shenanigans. The settings shot shows a version with 6GB RAM/128 GB storage, but there are rumors for an 8GB/256GB version as well. All be revealed just two weeks from now, on May 23, so stay tuned.
