The recently launched Moto Razr has been making waves in the smartphone industry since its unveiling a few hours ago. Compared to all exit folding concept phones, the Razer seems to be the most practical design that can withstand the test of time. And it also appears to be practically identical to a flip phone from the past. Therefore, it only makes sense for a company like Xiaomi to follow this idea and bring a folding phone similar to the new Razor.
A recent report by Tiger Mobiles suggests that Xiaomi is also working on a concept device with a folding display that looks very similar to the recently launched Moto Razor. The new concept has the same form factor elements as the Moto Razor but may have the slightly larger screen real estate. Renders show the flip-phone design with a small display on the outside and a dual camera on the back — not quite as smart as the new Razor but with some advantages.
The first is the lack of a thick chin like a moto razor. The phone has exceptionally slim bezels all around, and there is only a slightly thicker forehead. On the forehead is a set of cameras, sensors, and earpieces. The hinge is visible from the sides but is comparatively thinner than the one on the Moto Razor.
As for thickness, the concept suggests medium thickness, and that creates doubts in mind about battery capacity and chipset. However, it is still in the concept phase and means that it may take some time to prepare. At the back, there is a dual-camera setup, but it stands in the lower half of the phone.
The performance on the outside is comparatively smaller than the one on the new Razr but will be significantly more substantial to show time, notifications, alarms and some necessary information.
Now, this is just a patent, and there is a possibility that Xiaomi may never come with the phone in reality. Xiaomi itself is working on a folding phone concept that allows for dual folds. The idea of Xiaomi enable the user to fold additional screens from both sides to achieve a tablet-like experience.
