New Xiaomi Folding Phone has summoned us for February 23 in Barcelona, where we hope to meet the new Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro and, surely also, Mi 10 pro 5G. However, everything indicates that the Chinese company is also preparing its own proposal in the segment of folding phones, which has been talking for more than a year.
And it is that twelve months ago since different managers of Xiaomi showed a video prototype in various social networks and shortly after, the company confirmed that it was working on it while filtering the first rendes. Now some images with the design of a Xiaomi folding phone have appeared in the Chinese CNIPA certification entity showing a horizontal folding, very similar to that of the Huawei Mate X.
As seen in the images, the phone has a flexible screen with a huge internal hinge that would allow it to be folded horizontally, that is, outward, so that the back panel was on top of the other, as in the Huawei Mate X. This would contrast with the patent of a “shell type” mobile similar to the Motorola reason that the manufacturer presented a few months ago.
When Professionals Run Into Problems With A New Xiaomi Folding Phone Similar To The Huawei Mate X Leaks Into Images, This Is What They Do
This proposal by Xiaomi shows a curved screen and a sidebar that houses a double camera with LED flash, although it is not very clear if the camera module would be housed in a notch or if camera technology would be used under the screen. It is likely, however, that this dual camera also acts as a front camera for selfies and video calls, although for this, the device should be deployed or the rear panel screen used as a viewfinder.
When deployed, it would offer a screen the size of a tablet that could run over the edges when folded, although the arc of the curve will not be as pronounced as we have seen in other terminals with a waterfall screen. The phone is likely to run under a special version of MIUI on Android adapted for folding phones and with features such as multi-active window support. The specifications of this future phone remain a mystery, but from 91mobiles they point out the possibility that it integrates the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor and that it is finally called My Fold or Mi MIX Fold.
