Following Xiaomi’s yesterday’s event, the brand is hosting a new launch today in China for other new products, including Mi Mix Fold, Xiaomi’s first mobile phone. The Mi Mix fold comes with interesting descriptions including a 2K screen, desktop mode and more. Here’s everything you need to know about the device.
The Mi Mix Fold has two screens, one external screen with an internal folding display, and the external display is a full-size full screen similar to the Galaxy Fold 2. While the exterior screen is a 6.52-inch AMOLED panel with 840 x 2,520-pixel resolution, the internal folding screen is a larger 8.01-inch screen with a 4: 3-factor ratio and WQHD resolution.
Being one of the biggest ads on the phone, Xiaomi also used a full desktop mode that can be used with many unused windows. There is no high refresh rate on the internal screen but the external screen has a refresh rate of 90Hz.
The phone also uses a 27% light U-shaped hinge. The Mi Mix Fold is powered by a 5G-enabled Snapdragon 888 chip available with 12GB or 16GB RAM and 256GB or 512GB UFS 3.1 storage. There is also a large 5020mAh battery supported by a fast charging of 67W. No wireless charging support available here.
