In a sequel to yesterday’s Xiaomi event, the brand held a new launch today in China for some new products, including the Mi Mix Fold, Xiaomi’s first foldable phone. The Mi Mix was originally one of the first phones to offer an edge-to-edge display and had a selfie camera at the bottom. It has now evolved into a foldable form factor with the new Mi Mix Fold. The phone comes with interesting specifications, including a 2K screen, a desktop mode and more. Here is everything you need to know about the device.
Mi Mix Fold has two screens, one single outer screen and a folding inner display, with the outer display being a large full-screen adaptation similar to that of the Galaxy Fold 2. While the outer screen is a 6.52-inch AMOLED panel with an 840 x 2,520 pixels resolution, the inner folding screen is a larger 8.01-inch screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio and WQHD resolution.
Being one of the largest displays on a phone, Xiaomi has also implemented a full desktop mode that can be used with multiple resizable windows. There is no higher refresh rate on the inner screen, but the outer screen features a 90Hz refresh rate.

The phone also uses a U-shaped hinge that is 27% lighter. Mi Mix Fold is powered by the 5G-enabled Snapdragon 888 chip available with 12GB or 16GB RAM and either 256GB or 512GB UFS 3.1 storage. There is also a large 5020mAh battery with support for 67W fast charging. No wireless charging support is present here.
Mi Mix Fold features a quad-camera setup on the back, comprising a 108MP Samsung HM2 main sensor, a 13MP, 123-degree FOV (field of view) ultra-wide angle sensor. An 8MP zoom sensor with 30x digital and 3x optical zoom and an 8MP macro camera. Other features include quad stereo speakers and an all-new ‘butterfly’ cooling system.

Mi Mix Fold is priced starting at 9,999 yuan (about Rs 1.11 lakh) for the 12GB/256GB variant and 10,999 yuan (about 1.22 lakh) for the 12GB/5126GB variant.
