Xiaomi is gearing up to unveil two innovative foldable phones, the Xiaomi Mix Flip and the Mix Fold 4, exclusively for the Chinese market this year. While the Mix Fold 4 will introduce a horizontal folding design as a successor to last year’s Mix Fold 3, the Mix Flip will offer a vertically foldable option. Recent leaks suggest that Xiaomi might be secretly developing a third foldable phone targeted at the domestic market.
Insider information from tipster Wisdom Pikachu indicates that Xiaomi is actively working on a cost-effective foldable phone. Unfortunately, specific details about the device’s specifications remain undisclosed at this time. It is speculated that this economical foldable phone from Xiaomi may not boast high-end features compared to the Mix Fold 4. Interestingly, this device is anticipated to compete with the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-powered Vivo X Fold 3, positioning itself as another affordable alternative.
Reports suggest that the Xiaomi Mix Fold 4 is set to feature a quad-camera system, potentially including an LYT-900 50-megapixel camera and a periscope telephoto camera. This high-end setup is likely to support two-way satellite communication and operate on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, features that may not be present in Xiaomi’s budget-friendly foldable phone.
On the other hand, details about the Xiaomi Mix Flip reveal it will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and is expected to include a dual-camera system.
