As foldable devices have been gaining popularity, more phone manufacturers started thinking about offering this type of product for their potential users too.
Big smartphone manufacturers like Samsung are already progressing on this niche market, offering high-end foldable phones like the extremely expensive Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2.
Recently, some rumors and leaks pointed to the fact that Xiaomi may be the next phone manufacturer to release a foldable phone.
According to an XDA discovery, coming from the Chinese beta of MIUI 12, there are things pointing to a product codenamed “Cetus”.
The findings also highlight a fragment of code that may indicate a tracking procedure belonging to the folding state of the device.
Other details about the so-called ‘Cetus’ and its state of development are not available from XDA, but it looks like Cetus will integrate a 108MP primary camera and a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor while running MIUI on Android 11.
LetsGoDigital found a patent Samsung filed regarding a new system for a foldable display. The design has one expansive display where both ends could fold around the sides, comparable to what Xiaomi is planning to release.
