Xiaomi’s subsequent foldable, codenamed “zizhan”, might appear like this

Foldables will probably be a operating theme for 2022, and we anticipate to see many extra within the coming months. Xiaomi has already entered the foldable area with gadgets just like the Mi Mix Fold, and we’re due for a refresh. Xiaomi’s foldable is following a extra relaxed refresh cycle than its glass slab releases, and understandably so. Whereas it’s been over a 12 months because the Mi Combine Fold got here to market, data stays scarce on what the following foldable will appear like. However now, we could have some clue on the way it will look.

XDA Senior Member kacskrz noticed graphical belongings inside the latest MIUI China builds that exhibit a foldable that appears completely different from the Mi Combine Fold.

The animation file exhibits off a number of angles and folded states of an unidentified Xiaomi machine. Notably, the digicam bump on the again of the machine is a sq. with rounded corners, as an alternative of the extra rectangular bump seen on the Mi Combine Fold. This might point out that Xiaomi could also be maintaining the digicam setup extra sensible as an alternative of as bleeding-edge because it was on the Mi Combine Fold, maybe marking this subsequent foldable as an general mass-market product.

We additionally see the cutout digicam on the outer display screen. The interior display screen is clear, indicating that Xiaomi could possibly be sticking with its choice to not have any cameras on the interior show in any respect.


Kacskrz has shared extra data noticed inside MIUI China releases. We all know the Xiaomi foldable is codenamed “zizhan” (vs “cetus” for the Mi Combine Fold). Additional, code inside MIUI means that “zizhan” will share a show panel used on “umi” which is the codename for the Mi 10. The Mi 10 is a glass slab flagship, so we presume that which means that the outer show on the foldable would be the identical panel as used on the Mi 10. This then additional factors to the quilt show being a 90Hz FHD+ panel with attainable HDR 10+ assist. The show dimension on the Mi 10 is 6.67-inches, however the machine has curved edges, so the measured dimensions might differ when used on the flatter foldable.

We’ll maintain an eye fixed out for extra data on this Xiaomi foldable.
