  • A veteran leaker says Xiaomi is working on a clamshell foldable.
  • This would be the company’s first clamshell foldable design.
  • It’s believed that this phone could be extremely light and thin as well.

Xiaomi is no stranger to foldable phones, launching the Mix Fold and Mix Fold 2 as Galaxy Z Fold rivals in China. Now, a trusted leaker has claimed that the manufacturer could offer something much smaller.

Weibo tipster Digital Chat Station asserts that Xiaomi is working on a clamshell foldable phone. This would be the first time the company offers a clamshell device.

Furthermore, the leaker adds that the device will be “extremely light and thin.” So if you thought the Galaxy Z Flip series, Motorola Razr line, and OPPO Find N2 Flip were a little too thick for you, then you might want to keep an eye on this model.

Nevertheless, we’re curious to see how much a Xiaomi Mix Flip would cost. The company has historically had a reputation for aggressive pricing, but recent flagship phones like the Xiaomi 13 Pro have landed with ultra-premium price tags.

Then again, the brand’s Mix Fold devices were China-only products, so we aren’t optimistic about this rumored phone getting a global release. Here’s hoping Xiaomi proves us wrong, though.
