Foldable clamshell smartphone soon at Xiaomi?

After setting foot in the foldable screen smartphone market, the Chinese manufacturer could put… both feet in it. And quickly offer a second foldable smartphone, this time with a clamshell.

In 2021 Xiaomi launched its first foldable screen smartphone, the Mix Fold, similar to Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold, on the Chinese market.

Affordable Foldable Xiaomi Smartphone?

According to the reputable leaker Digital Chat Station on the Chinese social network Weibo (via Gizmochina), Xiaomi is also preparing another model adopting the clamshell design of the Galaxy Z Flip. The rumor is reminiscent of a rumor that was already going around at the end of 2020, and specifies that the device would stand out for its price, closer to that of a "normal" high-end smartphone than of a foldable specimen, which is significantly more expensive. We also learn that the device would be equipped with a Full HD+ screen (2,310 x 1,080 pixels) with a 120 Hz refresh rate, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 processor.
