Xiaomi management has officially announced the release of two new products. By the end of the year, the list of mobile devices of the company will be replenished with the Mi MIX 4 smartphone and a new tablet. Gizmochina writes about it. The exact release dates of new products are not yet known.

Speculation about the development of a sequel to the Mi MIX series appeared on February 3, when Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun (Lei Jun) published a teaser of the new smartphone. He called it «the company’s most expensive smartphone.» There is no reliable information about the device yet, but according to rumors, Mi MIX 4 may be the first foldable device from Xiaomi.

Rumors of a folding structure are confirmed by several photos that have surfaced online. An unidentified person photographed an unknown Chinese foldable smartphone in public transport, which used the MIUI 12 interface. Experts suggested that this may be an engineering sample of the future Mi MIX 4. The foldable element is similar to that used in the Galaxy Z Fold.

Thus, the Mi MIX series will continue after a two-year break. Recall that the Mi MIX 3 phablet was released in November 2018. The sequel could have been Mi MIX Alpha, but Xiaomi refused to release it on the market. It is noteworthy that the gap between the release of Xiaomi tablets is also more than two years — the previous Mi Pad 4 appeared on the shelves in 2018.
