Folding screen smartphones perfectly combine the experience of using tablets and traditional phones. That’s why they become an important member of the smartphone market. This year’s folding screen smartphone market will welcome new members, such as Xiaomi, OPPO, VIVO, etc. In this regard, Ross Young said today that Xiaomi is about to launch a folding screen smartphone. The new product may be named the MIX 4 Pro Max and will be supplied by China Star Optoelectronics.
Ross Young pointed out that the Xiaomi folding screen smartphone solution adopts an external folding form, and the shape is more like the Huawei Mate Xs.
We know that the Huawei Mate Xs is externally foldable, which is essentially different from the internal foldable approach of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2.
Xiaomi has previously demonstrated a dual-folding smartphone. According to the official introduction, the Xiaomi dual-folding phone has overcome a series of technical problems such as flexible folding screen technology, four-wheel drive folding hinge technology, flexible cover technology and MIUI adaptation.
However, this folding screen has not been mass-produced for commercial use. It seems that Xiaomi has explored a variety of folding solutions in the field of folding screens, and the listed models may choose the outer folding solution.
In terms of specifications, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold series and Huawei Mate X series all have flagship configurations . Therefore, the Xiaomi folding phone may also have a flagship configuration, such as the Snapdragon 888 flagship platform, 8GB or 12GB memory, new MIUI interaction, and so on.
