Xiaomi just launched a foldable namely the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold. It is a tablet styled folding device and here are its complete specifications with features and pricing
Xiaomi Mi Mix FOLD
The Xiaomi Mi Mix FOLD is the newly announced Xiaomi foldable, it is an inward folding phone just like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, with a bigger screen inside and a smaller Screen outside. It folds using a U hinge mechanism.
The new Hinge Design by Xiaomi makes it 27% lighter and smoother, the Hinge has been tested 200,000 times for quality assurance. There is an aluminum + magnetic sheet behind every hinge lock so it can snap in place and be more durable.
The Mi Mix Fold is powered by the Snapdragon 888 5G SoC, combined with up to 16GB RAM and 512GB storage. It has a 5020mAh battery and 67w fast wired charging. We see an 8.01″ AMOLED flexible display with HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and 120Hz refresh rate, while the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold’s external display measures 6.52”, it is an AMOLED panel with 840 x 2,520 px resolution.
That is a rather wide aspect ratio of 27:9. Unlike the interior display, this one has a high refresh rate – 90 Hz, plus a 180 Hz touch sampling rate. Also, it is slightly brighter with 650 nits typical brightness. It supports HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, plus it has excellent color calibration as well. We also see a quad-speaker system which is tuned by Harman/Kardon.
A new butterfly cooling system is also observed which has cooling pipes all inside the phone utilizing the space much efficiently and distributing the heat all along with them.
We see a triple camera system with the main 108MP sensor, the secondary 13MP Ultra-Wide, and an 8MP 30X telephoto which doubles as a Macro Lens.
The liquid lens on the phone is the first time we are seeing on a phone, in the telephoto camera. It is made out of a flexible film filled with transparent liquid. It can change its shape, just like the lens in the human eye, thanks to a precision motor, this allows it to adjust its optical magnification ratio from 3x to 30X. The lens has a minimum focus distance of just 3 cm, which allows it to photograph faraway objects and take macro shots.
It is truly a great technology on a phone. Xiaomi also uses a silicon C1 chip for the camera, the Surge C1 image processing chip was developed by Xiaomi. It runs on the 3A algorithms – Auto Focus, Auto Exposure, and Auto White Balance – in a power-efficient manner. The chip sets all three functions to the needs.
The Quad-Speakers by Harman/Kardon work greatly paired with Dolby Audio. Xiaomi developed a 3D spatial audio algorithm that creates an immersive experience using the four speakers. We can also use the FOLD on desktop mode to take full advantage of the huge display and power.
There are 2 versions of the Mi Mix Fold, The standard, and the ceramic version, they have the same specifications, only different in look/feel.
Both versions of the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold are going on pre-order in China later today. The first units will be available from April 16. The 12/256GB model starts at CNY10,000 ($1,520/PKR 232,805), the next step is 12/512GB at CNY11,000 ($1,673/PKR 256,085), and, the top end 16/512GB model for CNY13,000 ($1,977/PKR 302,641).
