The first images of the next Xiaomi foldable smartphone show a few awesome features such as the triple rear camera, 5G connectivity or 4,000 mAh battery.
This year, without a doubt, foldable smartphones have been one of the greatest technological trends in the mobile sector along with the development of 5G networks. In fact, during the Mobile World Congress 2019 held in Barcelona, we saw how the foldable mobile phones manufactured by companies such as Samsung or Huawei had been in highlight.
Following Samsung’s confirmation of the Galaxy Fold’s (its first folding device) commercial launch at it’s 2018 annual conference, Huawei also introduced the Mate X, although we were expecting an announcement from Xiaomi.
The company has not yet officially confirmed the date of its launch, but just a few months ago the Chinese social network Weibo showed the first renders of the company’s folding mobile .
New 3D Renders
The Xiaomi folding mobile was announced at the beginning of the year after the announcement of the rest of the companies, and in March it presented a design patent with sketches that showed a triple screen device. LetsGoDigital experts have published 3D renderings of the patents to analyze the characteristics of the next smartphone by the Chinese company.
First of all, as we knew, the design has a triple flexible and foldable screen capable of becoming a tablet and smartphone. When deployed, the device screen is 7.3 inches and we can see a vertical camera system in the back area with three sensors. We do not see a selfie camera in the front, although that may mean that it is integrated into the screen itself.
On the other hand, there is a USB-C type connection port in the back area, though it does not have a headphone jack – something which is common in all latest smartphones in the market. Regarding its technical specifications, this new Xiaomi foldable device will include a 4,000 mAh battery with a 100-watt fast charger and will support 5G connection.
We still do not know when they will announce the date of its launch, nor its price, but we assume that it will follow its marketing strategy and sell the folding device at a lower price than that of its competitors.
