Today Xiaomi held the second day of its Mega March launch event. The company kicked all doors of expectations with the release of the Mi Mix Fold bringing impressive hardware. We’ve been surprised by the fact that the company’s foldable smartphone is pretty much ready to hit the shelves in the next month. The Mi Mix Fold price starts at under $1,600 which isn’t bad considering the whole set of specifications. Besides the new smartphone, the company also decided to unveil a new Xiaomi logo and a new “Alive” branding identity designed by Japanese graphic designer Kenya Hara.
Hold your breath since this change isn’t a ground-breaking one. It basically drops the square orange frame in favor of a new frame with rounded edges. Furthermore, there is new typography for the “Xiaomi” word that adds a more aesthetically pleasing look to the company’s name next to the logo. According to Xiaomi, the new logo has been changed as it wanted a more agile look to its brand identity and one which symbolizes its agile nature heading into the next decade.
The company certainly is keen to start a new phase in 2021 through the release of its new smartphones and the entrance in the market of electric cars.
