A leak by senior XDA member kacskrz suggests an interesting fact. He managed to dive into the code of MIUI 12 Beta version and found out a new phone codename.
Enter Cetus, a codename of Xiaomi’s upcoming phone allegedly know as company’s first foldable Android phone.
The hint comes from the decoded key values named “isFoldAbleDevice” which we can envisage it from the name.
Another hint also comes from fields in the display code to monitor and identify the folding state.
Hence, the hints become stronger that Xiaomi will soon release its first foldable smartphone.
The company is recently nominated as the world’s third biggest smartphone company.
This bold move is just deliberately strengthen its position.
Specs-wise, Xiaomi foldable phone will come with slightly highend specifications.
At this point, the information is very limited but considering the technology of folding touchscreen phone is now very rare, we believe the specs will also awesome.
We have no valid details yet. If we may, some guesses about its specifications will include Qualcomm latest Snapdragon 875. The chipset is expected to include 1x Cortex-X1 core, 3x Cortex-A78 cores, and 4x Cortex-A55 cores.
The SoC inherits 5 nm processing technology which means very easy on battery consumption.
What about the price?
Since the SoC itself will debut in this December and the phone will come earlier next year, probably, the price we believe somewhere between Mi 10 and Mi 10T.
MIUI 12 based on Android 11 is also believed to run on the phone.
Despite not being dubbed as best photography phone, we believe a powerful camera sensor will sport the phone. Maybe something at 108MP.
Who knows, let’s wait and see for further news.
Android foldable touchscreen phone is not something Xiaomi is about to start.
Big players like Samsung and Huawei have released theirs this year.
Despite mixed responses, having Android foldable phone on hands is something we can brag for.
It surely is prestigious.
Take it to a comparison, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 which is coming this year boasts a unique design.
Cited from its official page, the company dubs the phone having designed to change the shape of the future.
Samsung Ultra Thin Glass also sports the 7.6-inch foldable display. Such amazing screen display is said to deliver the rich colors of Dynamic AMOLED 2X.
The question is, will Xiaomi foldable phone come with AMOLED screen as well? Hmmm,.. mostlikely.
