Xiaomi reportedly working on a Galaxy Z Flip-style foldable

Prepend to the content

  • Xiaomi is finally looking to join a long list of manufacturers to release a clamshell foldable
  • This comes hot on the heels of the Motorola Razr Ultra’s recent launch
  • It’s still unclear if the phone will make its way outside China

Xiaomi has been on a roll recently, with the Redmi Buds 4 confirmed to land in India imminently, along with the Xiaomi Pad 6. The company’s not particularly new to the foldable segment, with the likes of the Mix Fold 2 launching last year and a successor already on the way.

But the manufacturer doesn’t have a clamshell foldable just yet. But that could be changing soon, as per Digital Chat Station, who has revealed the existence of a foldable similar to the Galaxy Z Flip 4. The leaker claims that Xiaomi’s clamshell foldable will be relatively thin, similar to the aforementioned Mix Fold 2, which is among the thinnest foldables in the business.

As GSMArena rightly points out, this upcoming Xiaomi foldable could borrow more than just the thin form factor from the Mix Fold 2, as this rumoured foldable may be exclusively available in China. Discussions about Xiaomi launching a clamshell foldable have been floating around for a few years now.

Xiaomi filed a clamshell foldable patent in 2019

Shortly following the launch of the Motorola Razr foldable in 2019, we came across a patent filed in China by Xiaomi detailing plans for a clamshell-style foldable. But for some reason, the project never materialised.

But if this new revelation by Digital Chat Station is anything to go by, the Chinese OEM could be finally ready to take the leap. Motorola’s Razr 40 and Razr 40 Ultra were recently launched and are on course to launch in India via Amazon. Oppo

Meanwhile, we’ve recently learned that Samsung is prepping to announce its new duo of foldables — the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the Galaxy Z Fold 5 — in July. Keeping this in mind, Xiaomi may be right to finally make the leap to clamshell foldables to complement the Mix Fold 2.
