The Chinese manufacturer will unveil its next folding smartphone on August 11, just 24 hours after the event organized by Samsung.
The folding smartphone market is doing well, with sales increasing, and manufacturers are not planning to rest on their laurels this year.
Xiaomi intends to parasitize Samsung and the launch of its folding smartphones
The big event is of course to be found on the side of Samsung, which will present this Wednesday, August 10, its highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4. If the manufacturer hoped that this announcement in the middle of the summer would offer him a boulevard in terms of communication, he probably went a little quickly to work.
Indeed, Xiaomi has just announced on its social networks an event that will take place on Thursday, August 12 at 13 o’clock, French time, and whose visual, with a glimpse of a hinge that supports a flexible screen, leaves no room for doubt. The Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 will be officially presented in a few hours in China.
Several noises from the corridor already tell us a little more about this new folding smartphone signed Xiaomi. On the design side, the device should be inspired by that of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, with a screen on the front side once the phone is folded. This panel should have a size of 6.5 inches, which is a sufficient display surface to manage your daily notifications and send a few messages.
Once unfolded, the MIX Fold 2 could offer a screen size of 8 inches. The display frequency would have been improved by Xiaomi and would go from 60 Hz for the previous model to 120 Hz. The manufacturer would also have opted for LPTO screen technology in order to vary the refresh rate according to usage, in order to preserve autonomy.
For the technical data sheet, the information is more meager, but we suspect that the manufacturer will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1. The mobile chip is the most powerful of the American manufacturer currently available and already equips a large number of flagships.
Now all that remains is to wait a few hours to find out the latest details about this upcoming Xiaomi folding smartphone, but also to find out if a commercialization in Europe is planned.
