Xiaomi recently launched its third generation of foldables— Xiaomi Mix Fold 3. And with that release, it took the world by storm with how thin the fold was. But despite being on the third generation of its book-style foldable, Xiaomi has been rather silent in the flip space. Well, until now that is! Leaks and rumours suggest the Chinese giant is working on a flip phone and it seems super…interesting. So let’s get right into rounding up all the rumours surrounding the Xiaomi Mix Flip so far.
Xiaomi Mix Flip Rumours Roundup
As it stands, the IMEI database in China received a new entry from Xiaomi under the moniker “Mix Flip” with model number 2311BPN23C assigned to it. And by looking at the model number, some sources speculated that the phone will be released by the end of this year. This would mean that the Mix Flip would arrive a lot earlier than previously expected. As per the previous speculation, the Xiaomi Flip would arrive alongside the Xiaomi Mix Fold 4 somewhere in the fall of 2024.
On the technical side of things, we have some more rumours floating around. You may refer to the supposed render of the Mix Flip from GSMChina above. As per the render, Xiaomi Mix Flip will take a horizontal three-camera lineup approach similar to that of Xiaomi Mix Fold 3. This could mean that we will be getting a 3x zoom lens with the Mix Flip. It looks as if Xiaomi will take a rather unique approach and place a secondary screen under the camera lineup. Additionally, some sources are even speculating that the Mix Flip will be receiving the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

Similar to other flips, it might serve as an affordable version of a foldable from Xiaomi. We hope that it follows suit of the Xiaomi Fold 3 in being thin and light. Xiaomi has always been limiting its foldable offerings within China despite making a name for itself. Unfortunately, Xiaomi Mix Flip may be facing a similar fate.
