The founder of the research company Display Supply Chain Consultants and DisplaySearch Ross Young (Ross Young) has published exclusive information about the first Xiaomi smartphone with a flexible screen.

According to Ross Young, Xiaomi’s foldable smartphone will be released under the name Mi Mix 4 Pro Max. On the one hand, this seems unexpected, since only monoblocks and sliders were presented in this line. On the other hand, this is quite logical, given that the company is constantly experimenting with new technologies in the Xiaomi Mi Mix line.

In addition, he reports that the display of Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 Pro Max is supplied by China Star Optoelectronics Technology(CSOT), a subsidiary of TCL. The device will fold the screen outward, an insider points out similarities to the Huawei Mate XS. He added that the screen of the device when folded will have a diagonal of 6.38 inches.

Earlier it was reported that the screens for the first Xiaomi folding smartphones will be supplied by Samsung. The analyst confirms that Samsung Display will supply Xiaomi with flexible screens for another smartphone in the future.

Xiaomi first demonstrated a working prototype of a foldable smartphone back in early 2019, but the Chinese manufacturer hasn’t released a commercial device for two years now.
