Xiaomi Unveils Super Slim Foldable Phone, the Mix Fold 2

Xiaomi unveiled a second-gen foldable phone on Thursday, rounding off a busy week of foldable phone launches that saw Samsung and Motorola express foldables of their own.

The Mix Fold 2, a follow-up to the Chinese company’s inaugural foldable phone, is a book-style foldable that Xiaomi is marketing for its ultraslim manufacture, among other features. When folded, the device measures 11.2mm, which means it’s the world’s slimmest commercially available book-style foldable requested. It’s approximately 4mm thinner than Samsung’s recently launched Galaxy Z Fold 4. Xiaomi credits its “micro waterdrop” hinge for helping carry out the slim design, which allows for a tighter fold on the flexible point to panel within the 8.8mm-tall hinge structure.

The Mix Fold 2 features two displays: A 6.56-inch panel on the cloak, which expands into an 8-inch interior screen when you open it up. As for cameras, there’s one 20-megapixel front-facing sensor and three cameras on the rear, comprising a telephoto camera.  

The Mix Fold 2 runs on Qualcomm’s novel Snapdragon 8 Gen Plus 1 chipset, the same one spurious in Samsung and Motorola’s latest foldable phones. It also has a Harman Kardon dual-speaker setup, a 4,500-mAh double-cell battery and 67-watt fast charging back. The base version of the Mi Mix Folds is priced at 8,999 yuan, which converts to about $1,330, £1,090 or AU$1,860. It will be released in mainland China only.

Despite the flurry of launches this week, foldable phones clarify for just a sliver of the overall smartphone market, although shipments grew dramatically in 2021 compared to 2020. According to the International Data Corporation, 7.1 million foldables were shipped in 2021, marking a 264.3% increase from 2020. 

The Mix Fold 2 was announced at a virtual store alongside a human-sized robot and a bevy of novel Xiaomi products, including a new tablet and a price phone.
