Xiaomi has been working on a foldable smartphone for several years now. Last year company I even showed its prototype, but the device never entered the market. Now there is information that the Chinese manufacturer is preparing a new device that may become commercial.
What is known
A user of the XDA-Developers forum under the nickname kacskrz has been digging into the code of the latest MIUI 12 China Closed Beta build for Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. He found in the firmware a mention of a folding smartphone with the code name Cetus (from Latin whale)… The device will definitely work on a Qualcomm processor. The chip model is not specified, but it can be assumed that we are talking about the new SoC Snapdragon 875. It should be shown in early December.
The code also says that the device has a main camera with a 108MP sensor. There are no other details about Xiaomi Cetus yet, as well as the date of the announcement. It is unlikely that a novelty should be expected this year. In any case, sooner or later Xiaomi will present its foldable smartphone, because the competitor in the person of Samsung and Huawei have been selling such devices for a year now.
