Now, after years of exclusivity in Asia, it is starting to bring its phones to Europe in an ongoing West-ward expansion.

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 …
