Xiaomi in 2021 is likely to come up with three foldable smartphones. The information was shared by the CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) – Ross Young, on Twitter. Even before this, there were reports that Xiaomi was working on foldable smartphones. Besides Xiaomi, other competitors such as Oppo and Samsung are also probable to be working on foldable smartphones. Ross in another Tweet informed that Samsung Galaxy Fold 3 is likely to come up with a smaller main display and cover display.
According to the tweet by Young, the next foldable smartphone “to hit the market” will probably be from Xiaomi. Talking about the foldable smartphones, they are likely to come up in three design types – in-folding, out-folding, and clamshell. According to a report this year, for foldable OLED panels for a clamshell-type phone, Xiaomi has already placed an order with Samsung Display and LG Display.
As per his yet another tweet, Samsung is probable to unveil the much talked about Galaxy Z Fold 3 (not final name) with smaller displays than its predecessor. He claimed that the foldable smartphone’s main display will decrease from 7.59-inch to 7.55-inch. Compared to Galaxy Z Fold 2’s 6.23-inch screen, the cover display will be 6.21 inches long. This is owing to the reason that Samsung is looking for more space for S Pen.
Apart from this, he said that the supposed Galaxy Z Flip 3/ Flip Lite will have a 6.7-inch display and Samsung will incorporate 120Hz refresh rate and low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPO) technology on the phone.
