- Xiaomi has a second foldable smartphone in the works, which will succeed the Mi Mix Fold
- It will feature the Snapdragon 888 chipset, a 5,000mAh battery, and a 108MP primary camera.
- The foldable will ship with an internal folding screen and support high refresh rates.
The Mi MIX Fold finally made its debut earlier this year amid much fanfare. Now, there is a second Xiaomi foldable phone in the works, if a new report from Weibo leaker Digital Chat Station (via MySmartPrice) is to be believed. It states that it will employ a front-folding screen. The next part is unclear due to the machine translation going awry, but it will likely have a regular screen configuration found in some other foldable phones. We’re probably looking at a better hinge design and a few other minor QoL improvements here and there.
We’re not quite sure what Xiaomi’s end goal is with this new foldable. The Mi Mix is still only available in a grand total of two countries (China and Vietnam). While it is priced on the higher end of the spectrum, Xiaomi fans would undoubtedly love to take a crack at its first-ever foldable. One can only hope that this new device is launched globally, but given the global chip shortage, the prospects of that happening seem unlikely.
