The upcoming Xiaomi Foldable Smartphone will reportedly pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor under the hood. Xiaomi fans have been waiting with bated breath to get their hands on the Chinese tech giant’s maiden foldable smartphone. While nothing is set in stone yet, a vital piece of information about the purported handset has popped up online. The latest leak divulges the Xiaomi Foldable Smartphone’s key specifications.
If rumors making the rounds online are anything to go by, Xiaomi is gearing up to go toe-to-toe with Samsung. The South Korean tech giant’s Galaxy Z Flip 3 recently took the foldable device segment by storm. In a new development, some partial specifications of the upcoming Xiaomi foldable device have been leaked. Aside from that, the phone’s design details have surfaced on the web. Moreover, these leaks show that Xiaomi is not shying away from adopting bolder designs even for its flagship devices.
Xiaomi Foldable Phone To Pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
The latest leaked Xiaomi Foldable Phone’s specifications come from a reputed leaker Digital Chat Station. Furthermore, the leaked details suggest that the device will be the Xiaomi Mix Flip. However, regardless of the moniker the phone will be carrying, its key hardware details have made appearance online. According to a Weibo post by DCS, the Xiaomi Foldable Smartphone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. It is worth mentioning here that the newly launched Motorola Razr packs the same processor.
Aside from that, the phone’s internal, folded OLED display will reportedly deliver a high refresh rate of 120Hz. According to a report by 9To5Google, Xiaomi has launched its latest 12-series smartphones with the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, and 120W fast charging support. Aside from that, the Xiaomi 12 series smartphones boast an impressive array of other features and top-notch specs. Also, offering a 120Hz refresh on a folding screen is particularly notable, given that the iPhone 14 will reportedly not be offering the same refresh rate.
Other Leaked Details & Expected Price
In addition to a slew of other details are available in the latest leak. For instance, the leak includes Xiaomi Foldable Phone’s camera specs. The foldable handset will reportedly house a 50MP camera with an f/1.5 aperture lens. If this speculation turns out to be true, the foldable phone will be capable of capturing really good photos. Aside from that, pricing details about the handset are now available. The information suggest that the phone will cost like any other “normal” flagship. Last year, a report indicated that the Xiaomi Foldable Phone could go official on March 29.
However, it is still unclear whether this information is about the Xiaomi Foldable Phone or another smartphone from one of its competitors. Nevertheless, the Xiaomi Foldable Smartphone could retail for less than $1000. This is quite a reasonable price tag to carry, especially compared to the prices of the Samsung Galaxy S22 or the iPhone 14, which aren’t easy on the pocketbook. Also, it will be interesting to see whether Xiaomi will launch its maiden foldable handset outside China.
