Xiaomi is said to be developing a foldable phone which could launch as early as the first quarter of 2023, codenamed Mix Fold 2. The device features a 6.73-inch foldable display with 120Hz refresh rate, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, with three 50MP cameras on the back for quick photos, 4,600mAh battery capacity and support for fast charging via 67W fast chargers.
Xiaomi will soon release their second foldable phone after the Mi Mix Fold was unveiled in 2021. However, while that device cost over $1,000 for consumers to own at launch time, this new Xiaomi clamshell folding phone should prove more accessible for most.
Samsung and Motorola both recently unveiled successful clamshell foldable phones, offering more compact designs that are easier to use while being less likely to break when closed.
Xiaomi is an industry giant when it comes to smartphones, and their entry into the foldable phone market may help spread widespread adoption. Their track record speaks for itself – affordable yet high-quality smartphones were released by Xiaomi before, so their clamshell foldable phone should likely prove successful as well.
Here are the key features of Xiaomi’s new foldable phone:
- 6.73-inch foldable display with a 120Hz refresh rate
- Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC
- 50MP triple-camera system on the back
- 4,600mAh battery
- Support for 67W fast charging
The phone is anticipated to come at a competitive price point and could prove popular with consumers looking for an economical yet fashionable foldable phone.
