Xiaomi has recently applied for a new patent. This patent is for a new foldable smartphone, which will be part of the Mi MIX series. The patent was spotted on the QCC app and could be for the Mi MIX 4 Pro Max or the Mi MIX Fold.
The report arrives from a post on Weibo, a Chinese microblogging website, which shared the information of the new patent along with a few of its supposed specifications. Notably, the upcoming device would be the Chinese tech giant’s first foldable smartphone. Unfortunately, the actual name of the device is currently unknown. Meaning, we don’t know whether the foldable device will be the Mi MIX 4 Pro Max, as we had reported earlier, or the Mi MIX Fold as stated in the Weibo post.
The social media post also stated that the foldable device will feature dual displays and will feature the flagship grade Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, paired with a 7 inch folding display with a high refresh rate of 120Hz. On the rear, the primary camera sensor will be a 108 megapixel shooter. Under the hood, a large 5,000mAh battery pack will reportedly power the device, which will also support 67W fast charging as well.
It is unknown if wireless charging will also be included, but it the Weibo blogger also added that the device will be released sometime after April of this year. Keep in mind, this is still an unconfirmed report and the company has yet to make any official announcement regarding the matter. So take this report with a pinch of salt and stay tuned for more, as we will be providing updates when additional information is available.
