Xiaomi has already entered the game of folding phones, but it is not stopping just yet. The Xiaomi Mix Fold is only one, but we can expect more models to be presented. The Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 has already been mentioned with a possible launch in mid-2022. In the past, we have seen several patents showing folding phones from the Chinese OEM. A new set of patents has emerged, featuring a Xiaomi folding phone with a stylus. With the mention of a digital pen, this means that the next model can compete with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 that comes with S Pen support.
Filing a patent does not always mean that the design will go into production. Not everyone reaches the developmental stage, but sometimes, it can be fun to imagine and see the many possibilities. This particular patent shows a Xiaomi folding smartphone with a stylus. It’s pretty much a book-like folding phone like the Galaxy Z Fold, Huawei Mate X, and Surface Duo.
The images show a stylus that we assume can work on the folding screen. The main screen has a left and a right side. On the right, it can be assumed that there may be a camera below the screen because there is no piercing cutout.
At the rear, there is a camera with a flash in one part. There is something about the hinge that we assume is something that holds the two parts together for durability.
No specs were listed, but we assume that the device could be the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2. Xiaomi has not confirmed anything yet. We only know that you have been planning a follow-up. And no, we do not doubt that Xiaomi will come up with something like what we just talked about.
