The Xiaomi MIX Flip is expected to arrive next year. This will be the company’s very first clamshell foldable, by the way. Now, a new piece of info has revealed the chip that will fuel the Xiaomi MIX Flip, and it comes from Qualcomm.

The Xiaomi MIX Flip is expected to include one of Qualcomm’s best processors

According to a tipster from China, the Xiaomi MIX Flip will be fueled by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. That is the second most powerful processor that Qualcomm has to offer. It seems to be more power efficient than the brand new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, though.


The tipster did not mention the Xiaomi MIX Flip by name, but it did say that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will fuel a “small foldable” from the company. That is the only small foldable that has been rumored.

Xiaomi announced three generations of book-style foldables thus far. The Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold, the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2, and the Xiaomi MIX Fold 3. It’s about time we see a clamshell foldable from Xiaomi.

This is also not the first time that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 was mentioned in context with the Xiaomi MIX Flip. We’ve heard whispers of it before, which gives this information more credibility.

A sketch of this phone did surface earlier this year, but we’re not sure it’s legit

In terms of the design, we’re not really sure what will the Xiaomi MIX Flip look like. A sketch did surface a while back, but truth be said, it didn’t look the best. If it ends up being real, however, we do hope the real product will look much better than the sketch itself.

Xiaomi did a good job designing the Xiaomi MIX Fold phones. So,  we do have high hopes for the company’s first clamshell foldable. You can, of course, expect it to have two displays, one foldable, and one cover panel.

That cover panel will have to be rather spacious in order to compete in today’s market. The OPPO Find N3 Flip has a really nice cover display size, as do the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Motorola Razr+.

The Xiaomi MIX Flip is expected to arrive next year, but we still don’t know when exactly.
