While other big players like Samsung and Motorola have already gotten into the foldable screen craze, Xiaomi has yet to offer a foldable smartphone. It looks like that may be changing soon, if the following leaked image is to be believed:
Based on the leak above, it looks as though Xiaomi will announce its first foldable smartphone soon, and will likely be called the Mi MIX Fold. The image was posted on Weibo by a known leaker, and it shows the design and the proposed name. However, we have been unable to confirm whether these images are legitimate, or just a design created by a fan. For this reason, take this leak with a grain of salt, for now.
What it could mean
The Mi Mix line has become stagnant in recent years, lagging behind competitors. If this leak is legitimate, it could mean that Xiaomi is once again planning to shake up the industry with innovative tech at a reasonable price point. According to rumors surrounding the leak, the inner display will be an 8.01-inch AMOLED panel that’ll offer QHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate (if reports are accurate). In the image, the read camera appears to have three camera modules.
We don’t yet have any confirmed specifications, so stay tuned for more.
