Chinese electronics maker Xiaomi has barely felt the impact of the coronavirus crisis. His enterprises, if and suspended their activities, then not for long. This gave its results. The company is now one of the industry leaders. The range of products manufactured by it is constantly growing, they are eagerly bought all over the world. Let's talk about several products of the company. The review will concern not only devices that will soon appear on store shelves. Some are under development.
Folding screen device
There is a possibility that Xiaomi will soon become another smartphone manufacturer with flexible displays. Recent leaks suggest that the company is working on a similar product that will compete with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and Motorola Razr.
The company has such plans reported by the electronic magazine ZDNet Korea. It was indicated that the Chinese company is preparing to release a clamshell, reminiscent of gadgets from Samsung and Motorola, released over the past six months.
According to the resource, Xiaomi engineers are currently selecting a flexible OLED panel for their product. Choose between Samsung Display and LG Display. Journalists claim that the start of sales of new items will take place before the end of this year.
Little is known about the appearance of the foldable Xiaomi smartphone. In part, it can be imagined thanks to the efforts of video blogger Wakar Hahn, who, in tandem with the German technology blog WindowsUnited, created an image of the device.
There are a lot of free niches on the bendable device market at this time. Until now, none of the manufacturers have offered a practical device. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is close to this definition, but it is expensive. The Galaxy Fold and Moto Razr have received hinges that are not well received.
The start of mass sales of such devices will have to wait for a long time. In addition to the high price, they have problems with durability, which affects demand.
It can be assumed that Xiaomi will master the release of an inexpensive folding device. Moreover, she previously managed to produce models that have become "flagship killers." But so far nothing is known about the prices for the device and its characteristics. It is worth waiting a bit for the situation to clear up completely.
