Samsung and Huawei held presentations of their folding smartphones during the international conference MWC 2019, which was held in Barcelona at the end of February. Users appreciated the innovative approach to the development of these smartphones. The design is really impressive, but the bulk price tag scares potential buyers. In early February, Lin Bin demonstrated a prototype of the Xiaomi Mi MIX Flex.
Many users expected the Chinese manufacturer to present their new product at the MWC 2019, but this did not happen. The company president explained that the final decision on the launch of mass production has not yet been made.
Today it became known that the Chinese brand intends to return to the idea of creating a smartphone with a folding screen. Developers Xiaomi managed to significantly improve the technologies used. Therefore, Mi MIX Flex will be twice cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
According to some Chinese media, the Xiaomi Mi Flex should see the light in the second half of this year at a price of “just” $999. If a Chinese manufacturer really does that, then its product will be the most affordable in the foldable smartphone segment. At the same time, it is not inferior to the analogs in performance.
Mi MIX Flex is equipped with a flexible AMOLED display. The development and production of a folding screen will be the company Visionox. About this cooperation, it became known a few days ago. Last month, Lei Jun reported that the developers faced certain problems related to the battery. Probably, all the difficulties in this direction were overcome.
The certain specifications of this new super top of the range of the Chinese company are certainly the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and at least 8GB of RAM. Even the MIUI, the proprietary interface of the company based on Android, could immediately undergo an ad hoc restyling in order to make the most of the versatility of the folding display.
Chinese media reported that the folding smartphone Xiaomi will be presented as early as next year. However, every day there are new design concepts for this device, which usually precedes the official release. We just have to wait for more information about this very interesting device that, as Xiaomi has accustomed us over the years, could revolutionize the newborn folding smartphone market.
