Xiaomi Foldable Phone Rumored to Cost Half of the Galaxy Fold; Debut Expected in Q2 2019

By Radu Iorga

Samsung and Huawei already brought foldable phones into the mainstream, but their prices are very high. We’re talking about $2000 for the Galaxy Fold and $2600 for the Huawei Mate X. Xiaomi is now said to seriously undercut them by prepping a $1000 foldable phone.

A recent report by iGyaan mentions that Xiaomi’s foldable smartphone, dubbed Mi Fold or Mi Flex right now is going to be priced at $999 in USA or 999 euros in Europe. In India it should cost around $1087. The debut of the product is scheduled for sometime between April and June and it’ll first happen in China, followed by separate launches in other global markets.

The device will cost half of the Galaxy Fold because it uses OLED panels made by Visionox Technology, a company I must admit I haven’t heard of. We’ll see if the panels are half as good as the Galaxy Fold and Mate X ones. The source also mentions flagship specs for the device, including a Snapdragon 855 CPU, 10 GB of RAM and I also expect a dual or triple camera on board.

There was a video surfaced online for the device back in January, that revealed its dual folding nature. It’s not very clear if that format is still on the table, since it would make the device pretty pricey.

Huawei Mate X Hands on Video Leaked, Showing Device in Full Glory (Video)

By James A.

Huawei Mate X has been the talk of the town, ever since it leaked in that poster a few days ago. Now it appears again, just hours ahead of the Huawei MWC 2019 unveiling. This foldable phone seems ready to give the Galaxy Fold a run for its money.

What we’re seeing here is definitely a 7+ inch machine, perhaps close to 7.3 inches like the Galaxy Fold. Unlike that one it seems a bit slimmer and has a “nub” on the right side, where the folded piece of screen connects. It should also hold some vital components in that stubby section. The handset has very narrow bezels and should hold a Balong 5000 modem for 5G support.

While specs aren’t known, we speculate that it has a Kirin 980 CPU, maybe even a newer version, like a Kirin 985 or 990. There should be 8 or 12 GB of RAM inside, 128 GB of storage or more. I see there’s also a space between the back folded screen and the device’s body. A quick look at the cameras reveals at least 3 of them and also the fact that you can use the back side of the device as a screen when folded.

Hopefully the price is better than the Galaxy Fold’s $2000.
