According to rumors circulating in the web world, Xiaomi is “equipping” its foldable with the best specifications and the latest technology.
Apparently, Xiaomi is betting on a powerful terminal with a more attractive price that could end the dominance of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 in the foldable segment.
Foldable Xiaomi may have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 at the controls
There is already a lot of expectation around the new Xiaomi folding and there are reasons for it. All the rumors that circulate about this terminal show that the Chinese brand will be very generous in the specifications that it gives to the equipment.
Now it has been revealed that the Xiaomi folding may have the latest Qualcomm processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, at the controls.
The information comes via the Digital Chat Station leaker which adds a few more specs we can expect to see on the device.
Thus, the folding Xiaomi can also have a screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and support for fast charging of 120 watts, similar to what is already happening with the Xiaomi 12 Pro model. And if Xiaomi chooses to include all the technologies present in The screen of its latest top of the range, the folding will have strong arguments to beat.
Other rumors suggest that the model could be equipped with a 50-megapixel main camera with an aperture of f/1.5. To be confirmed, this is another specification that can differentiate Xiaomi’s foldable, in the segment in which it will be inserted.
Xiaomi folding versus Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3
We now do a little face to face between the possible specifications of the Xiaomi folding and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 to understand how the Chinese brand intends to end Samsung’s dominance in the folding segment.
So, let’s start with the processors. Apparently, the foldable Xiaomi will feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, while the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is equipped with the Snapdragon 888. Strong arguments for both. On screen, both terminals have a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
At this point, Xiaomi will be able to differentiate itself if it chooses to equip the foldable with all or at least some of the technologies, present in its top of the range of the Xiaomi 12 series brand.
As for support for fast charging, if the information that Xiaomi’s foldable will support 120 watts is confirmed, the Chinese brand is the winner of this round, since the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is at 10 watts.
One thing is for sure, these two devices on the market promise to greatly encourage the foldable smartphone segment, which has been on a growth trend for some time. And if Apple decides that it will launch a folding smartphone, then there is no doubt that the market will experience a revolution.
Xiaomi foldable release date and price
Rumors are also already circulating about the possible launch date and the price at which the folding Xiaomi can reach the market. But we must view this information with caution, as there is still little data that could lead to an official confirmation soon.
But, according to the latest rumors, Xiaomi could present the foldable at the end of March, just after the arrival of spring. And now let’s talk about the crucial point that can dictate the success (or not) of the terminal: its price.
All the information indicates that the foldable reaches the “normal” price of any top Xiaomi smartphone. Some rumors even specify that the Xiaomi foldable can be launched for less than $1,000, that is, it can cost less than 880 euros. Once again, we emphasize that it is still early for this type of forecast, but if confirmed, it is a cost that will undoubtedly be competitive.
