The Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold has finally been unveiled. Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold is the first Xiaomi clamshell phone to compete with the Galaxy Z Fold.
Xiaomi has revived the Mi Mix brand with the unveiling of the Mi Mix Fold, which also happens to be Xiaomi’s first flexible business phone. Unlike previous products in the Mix series and the concept designs of the Chinese handset maker, the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha is a commercial clamshell phone that uses a large internal display and a small external display. This is similar to the design offered by the Galaxy Z Fold and Huawei Mate X2 series phones .

The phone’s internal display is an 8.01-inch OLED panel with a 4: 3 aspect ratio and a resolution of 2480 x 1860 pixels, which offers a maximum brightness of 900 nits (average 600 nits) and support for Dolby Vision HDR. Xiaomi says the display can be folded more than 200,000 times without any problems. The exterior display is a 6.52-inch panel with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. Xiaomi also has a lot of claims about the audio performance of its clamshell phone. The device uses Harman Kardon-adjusted stereo speakers that can deliver 3D panoramic sound.
At the heart of the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 chipset with 12 or 16 GB of RAM and 256 or 512 GB of internal storage. Its battery capacity is 5020 mAh, which according to the manufacturer with a power of 67 watts can be fully charged in just 37 minutes.
But one of Xiaomi’s innovations in this phone is related to its camera part. According to rumors, the company has used liquid lens technology in the camera part of its phone. The Chinese manufacturer says the technology has allowed the use of a telephoto lens with a closer focus range of 3 cm and a 3x optical zoom or a 30x hybrid zoom. At the top of the camera is Samsung’s 108-megapixel HMX main sensor, which is accompanied by a 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera.
Xiaomi unveiled its first concept clamshell phone two years ago, before Samsung began selling the Galaxy Fold. This device used a double folding design. The device was equipped with a tablet-sized display that shrank from the left and right edges to look like a regular phone. Later that year, Xiaomi unveiled another concept phone called the Mi Mix Alpha. The Mi Mix Alfa uses a display that wraps around the back cover, and except for a thin strip on which the cameras were placed, the screen almost covered the entire perimeter of the phone.
But the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold is a commercial phone that will be pre-sold in China starting today at a base price of $ 1521. Of course, you can get this phone for $ 1978 with more memory and RAM than the base model. There is still no talk of launching this phone in international markets.
