Xiaomi will be one of the brands that will launch a foldable mobile in the Spanish market in 2021. The manufacturer has been working on a foldable model for some time, with various patents, but so far none have been formalized. The brand would put a lot of emphasis on these models, as in 2021 they could reach up to three phones for their part.
Xiaomi’s commitment to folding is now reinforced with its new patents. A total of seven different patents, all folding models of the Chinese brand, have already been registered. Some patents where we see the variety of folding models in which they work.
MIUI code reveals what Xiaomi’s first foldable will look like
Xiaomi continues to work on a new foldable phone. In the source code of the beta version of MIUI 12 we were able to see data about this device.
Seven foldable Xiaomi phones
Xiaomi leaves us with three Flip flip phone patents in this case, models that could be compared with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip. Two models feature a screen design without a notch or perforation, with a small screen on the outside, which would be displayed when the phone is folded.
The other shell type model is more reminiscent of the Motorola Razr, with a a kind of notch / frame at the top, where we would have a dual camera. The rest of the screen would have thin bezels. The outer screen would be larger in this case, although the phone is likely thicker than the other patent.
The rest of the models patented by the brand are closer to the format of the Galaxy Z Fold 2, with a large screen when fully unfolded, similar to that of a tablet. When folded, it has a narrow outer screen, probably similar in size to a normal screen (around 6 inches). In these models we find different screen formats and camera combinations.
Seven new patents, which show at least that the brand works on folding devices
Xiaomi’s first folding should be official in 2021, if all goes well. An expected launch, while seeing that many patents are being developed gives us the feeling that the brand will be one of the most prominent in the folding business in the future.
