Today, blogger @digitchat revealed that xiaomi’s foldable phone is on the way and is expected to hit the shelves this year.
In the first half of last year, Xiaomi launched its first mass-produced foldable flagship, the MIX FOLD, which uses a book-like folding scheme similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold3 and has a foldable screen priced under 10,000 yuan, priced at 9,999 yuan for the first time.
At that time, mainstream mobile phones with the same foldable screen scheme in the market were generally priced at more than 10,000 yuan. However, Xiaomi MIX FOLD broke the previous price barrier of foldable mobile phones, and the starting price of 9999 was very competitive at that time.
Now Xiaomi is about to release its first foldable phone, which will likely come under the MIX range.
In terms of core configuration, Xiaomi’s new foldable screen is likely to have an FHD+ screen with an expected refresh rate of 120Hz. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 flagship processor and supports super fast charging.
In line with Xiaomi’s usual “humane pricing” strategy, the foldable phone is likely to be cheaper than the Mi MIX FOLD and is targeted at women. It will compete with Huawei’s newly launched P50 Pocket, which is priced at 8,988 yuan.
