The Chinese manufacturer led by Lei Jun should present us with at least two new foldable smartphones in 2024. At stake are the Xiaomi MIX Fold 4, as well as a new launch with a clamshell format, the possible Xiaomi MIX Flip, which is more affordable.
It seems that the first launch will be the MIX Flip, arriving during the first half of next year, possibly alongside the global launch of the next high-end line. Later, during the second semester, we should then get to know the fourth generation of the foldable book format, the MIX Fold.
Foldable smartphone will be more affordable, arriving in 2024
More recently, regarding the possible MIX Flip, we now have new evidence with a promising leak of information suggesting its possible processor. Its “engine” will be Qualcomm’s still powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, one of the best chipsets you can find in an Android smartphone.
Surpassed, it is true, by Qualcomm’s latest iteration, it is certain that this SD8 Gen 2 is little indebted to the most recent SD8 Gen 3 recently launched. In fact, the previous model, to be used in the MIX Flip, could also help the brand to lower the retail price for this mobile device, a powerful reason for choosing this technical component.
So far, the general format of the smartphone has been suggested as similar to the Galaxy Z Flip from the market-leading manufacturer, while Xiaomi will also want to focus on cameras. The result? An aspect possibly similar to what we can see in the digital images that illustrate this piece.

In view of the above, given the new leak of information from China, we are counting on the presence of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor in this terminal under development. Furthermore, the same source said that the Redmi K70 is also being prepared for launch in the Chinese domestic market, and will later reach the global market under another name.
At the same time, this same leaker He also mentioned the existence of a new Xiaomi tablet already in the pipeline. The product will have a 144 Hz refresh rate screen, IPS LCD technology for the screen and it will also use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in what is believed to be the Xiaomi Pad 7 Pro.
Finally, the source suggests that this smartphone will arrive during the first half of next year, giving it the IMEI number 2311BPN23C. In any case, we are now waiting for more information that will allow us to corroborate, or deny, everything that has been advanced.
