Previously, it was reported that Xiaomi’s new generation of foldable flagship, Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 will be released in June at the same time as the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra. Now, there are new revelations about the design of this phone. According to the news from the well-known blogger @DCS, the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 will adopt a new hinge design, making the creases of the inner screen of the phone smaller and easier to open/close.
While updating the hinge, Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 has also adjusted the design ideas. It is reported that the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 will use AG glass and be thinner and lighter than the original model. The colour matching and design will be similar to the Xiaomi 12 Ultra. According to earlier news, the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 is code-named “zizhan” and has a model number of 22061218C. It will use a 6.5-inch outer screen and an 8-inch inner screen and can be folded in both directions.
In terms of configuration, the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 may come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus flagship processor. Both the internal screen and the external screen support high refresh rates, and the external screen adopts a new design. This flagship foldable smartphone will be the successor to the original MIX Fold.
Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 speculations
Foldable smartphones are now very popular but only two brands currently have a grip on the entire market. A recent report from DSCC shows that Samsung and Huawei have 99% of the foldable smartphone market for Q3 2021. While Samsung has a 93% market share, Huawei has only 6%. The other brands with foldable smartphones including Xiaomi, Motorola, Royole, Microsoft, TCL, and others share just 1%. The latest report shows that the Xiaomi MIX Fold2 will use a 2K high-refresh foldable screen.
The MIX Fold 2 earlier appeared on the IMEI database. In addition to the performance upgrade, this smartphone will also bring relatively big changes in design. Its overall size and proportion will change, making the external screen more like a normal mobile phone.
At the same time, on the internal large screen, it will also make up for the shortfall of the previous generation, by bringing a high refresh rate 2K resolution screen. This will bring a higher and better large-screen user experience, and better crease control.
However, it should be noted that the MIX FOLD 2 will not adopt an on-screen camera. This means that it will have a punch-hole on the display.
