According to what we read on the net, it seems that Xiaomi will make its first folding smartphone with a design similar to that of the Galaxy Z Fold2.
Xiaomi’s first foldable phone will reportedly use a hinged design very similar to what we’ve seen with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold2. At the beginning of January of this year, the rumors about the future new foldable device of the Chinese giant followed one after another. We even published a photo taken in a Chinese subway that showed a folding of the company with MIUI 12 inside.
Xiaomi: what do we know about the new foldable?
A report later emerged stating how several Chinese brands would launch their own folding screen device this year. As if that were not enough, the Xiaomi Fold has also been certified by TENAA: everything goes in one direction. The product is about to arrive on the international market. Together with this, according to what was stated by the well-known tipster Digital Chat Station with a post on Weibo, it seems that the Xiaomi folding will adopt a structural design similar to that of the latest Galaxy Z Fold 2 from Samsung.
The vast majority of foldable phones currently on the market use a hinge to achieve the folding effect. This also serves to avoid repeated bending movements of the flexible screen. However, the hinge is also one of the main ones found on the first folding model released on the market, the Galaxy Fold 2019.
Beyond the hinge, another important aspect is the orientation of the fold. In this regard, there are models that flex inwards and devices that fold outwards. Both offer different methods of use.
Previous rumors had hinted that Xiaomi’s first folding would adopt a design capable of better protecting the flexible display panel from wear and the “folds of time”. Also, the main screen should not have any opening.
According to reports, the foldable Xiaomi will use a foldable OLED panel provided by Samsung with a specific size of 8.03 inches. On the other hand, there will be a 6.38-inch secondary screen.
Another reason why Xiaomi’s model is worth waiting for is the price. The Chinese OEM could market it at an advantageous cost, although we are somewhat skeptical on this point. What do you think about it?
