Xiaomi has scheduled its 2021 New Product Launch event on 29th March, which will be hosted in China, and a live event for the global markets. The company has confirmed that it will be launching Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra smartphones at the same event, along with a Mi Notebook Pro laptop and a new MIJIA Washing Machine.
We were expecting the company to launch a Mi MIX series device as well at the same event and Xiaomi has now confirmed this. While the company confirmed that the Mi MIX smartphone will be launched on 29th March, it has not revealed anything else related to this upcoming device.
If the recent reports are to be believed, then this new Mi MIX series smartphone is expected to be the company’s first foldable smartphone. As we recently reported, the device has already passed the 3C certification.
As of now, nothing much is known about the foldable smartphone from Xiaomi, but it is believed that the phone could be a part of the Mi MIX lineup, which the company uses for its experimental devices. This upcoming 5G smartphone likely has a Galaxy Z Fold2-like hinge design, making the display fold inwards.
Based on the previous reports, it is believed that the smartphone will come with a display size of around 7-inch with support for a 120Hz refresh rate. It could be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset and feature a 108MP primary camera sensor in the triple-camera module. It could run MIUI 12 and pack a 5,000mAh battery.
If the company indeed launches a foldable smartphone in the form of Mi MIX at the event on 29th March, then the company will be among the very few brands that have a device in this category, which currently includes Samsung, Huawei, and Motorola.
