It will excel in price
According to the latest information, the folding smartphone from Xiaomi will stand out among the competition. As with regular smartphones, this one has to attack at a low price. The information comes directly from the supply chain of Xiaomi products. The good news is that there is to be an innovative innovation officially available in Europe as well. Its price will start at 999 € / 25 600 CZK.

In addition to the price tag, the date of the performance and availability were brought to us. The Chinese manufacturer will present its first folding smartphone at a global conference at the end of April or early June.
As we have already mentioned, official availability is also to take place in Europe. There will also be China and India, which are the most important markets for Xiaomi.
How is a half price possible?
If you ask how the price of a folding Xiaomi smartphone can be up to half lower than the competition, we have an explanation for this as well. It is just on display. While the Galaxy Fold and Mate X are equipped with custom-made OLED panels, Xiaomi has had such a display made by another company. specifically Visionox Technology.
Although Xiaomi financed the cost of developing and producing display resources for its smartphone, it cost them less like Samsung or Huawei. Thanks to cost reduction, they will be able to offer an equally innovative smartphone much cheaper than the competition. And, of course, a much lower margin also plays a role here.
What about specifications and name?
The specifications of the smartphone are still largely unknown. There is talk of using the latest Snapdragon 855 processor along with 8 GB or 10 GB RAM. We do not know more details yet.
The exact name of the smartphone is not known either. The manufacturer shall decide between two - Xiaomi Mi MIX Flex or Xiaomi Mi Dual Flex.
