THE Xiaomi apparently working on a new foldable smartphone. O Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 is expected to launch by the end of 2022 to compete with Samsung in the foldable smartphone lineup. News of the Chinese tech giant’s patent was shared on Twitter by the user @Shadow_Leak.
Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 will come with many features
Looking at the images shared in the tweet, it can be seen that the smartphone has two display panels. The larger primary display folds inward, while one of the outer bezels showcases the smaller secondary display.
Meanwhile, the other half of the rear panel houses the main rear camera system, which is made up of three image sensors.The front doesn’t have a notch for the selfie camera or any indication of a display sensor.
Apparently, the brand may be trying to revive the pop-up trend, but this time with foldable smartphones. The selfie camera is located on a pop-up mechanism, which is likely to be motorized.
Looking at this module from above, we can see two cutouts, which means it is a dual front camera setup.
The new foldable smartphone will have 5,020 mAh batteries supporting fast charging, an 8.1-inch display with 2k resolution (2048 pixels horizontally), and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor.
The device competes with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. Google and Apple are said to be launching products in this form factor.
Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 could replace Mi Mix Foldable
There is still no information if it will replace the Mi Mix Foldable, which was not released in Brazil.
The main screen of the Mi Mix Foldable, which folds in half, measures 8.01 inches and when the screen outside remains at 6.52 inches, it can be used normally. The rear camera assembly has three lenses, the main one with 108 MP.
The technology is known as liquid lens which seeks to resemble human eyes by using a liquid that brings an effect similar to that present in our retina, allowing increasingly realistic photos.
The Mi Mix Foldable comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888, the same processor used in the Mi 11 family, and its 5,020mAh battery supports 67W fast charging.
