Mix Fold 2

Lu Weibing, the President of Xiaomi, has brought out an exciting announcement today. He officially announced the arrival of Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 in August. The President gave out the announcement to a question on Weibo, a famous Chinese social media platform.

In the comments, he mentioned that Xiaomi has a factory upgrade. Known as Smart Factory, this upgrade will mass produce the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3. That is, the foldable phone will mark the debut of Xiaomi’s new factory. And as the factory equips some crucial improvements, the upcoming foldable will see many upgrades.

What Upgrades Can You Expect from Xiaomi Mix Fold 3

Lu Weibing stated that Xiaomi’s new factory has undergone significant upgrades in terms of manufacturing systems. All these upgrades will make sure that the Mix Fold 3 is more robust and durable than the Mix Fold 2. Furthermore, the factory upgrade aims to make the upcoming device even thinner than its predecessor.

The Mix Fold 3 is also confirmed to have Leica-brand cameras. This Leica tuning makes camera systems more capable of taking amazing shots. Xiaomi has already been working with Leica for the past few years. And one of the latest products of this collaboration is the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, which offers mind-blowing camera performance.

That said, the fact that Mix Fold 3 will be thinner than Mix Fold 2 is pretty impressive. If you recall, the Mix Fold 2 is 11.3mm thick in the folded state. This measurement is already amazing, especially when you compare it with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold devices.

So, the fact that Xiaomi has managed to make the Mix Fold 3 thinner than 11.3mm could spell trouble for the Galaxy foldable devices.

Expected Specs of Xiaomi Mix Fold 3

Not much is known about the specs of the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3. But the device is expected to come with an under-display camera. It will be present in the folding display, which will offer the users an immersive viewing experience. The outer display will likely have the same design and setup as the Mix Fold 2.

In terms of the camera, the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 is expected to come with a robust setup. The main highlight is the periscope zoom lens, which will enable you to do 5x optical zoom and capture close-up shots without losing the details of the images.

Besides, as the Mix Fold 3 will be a flagship device from Xiaomi, it would be safe to assume that we will have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor inside. This chipset is the current flagship Android SoC from Qualcomm. And in terms of charging, there will be support for 50W wireless charging.


If you have kept up with the Mix Fold releases from Xiaomi, you might already know that the devices have limited availability. In the past, Xiaomi launched the Mix Fold 1 and Fold 2 exclusively in China. We did not see any global launch after the initial launch events.

And according to a recent rumor, the case will be the same for the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3. That is, the foldable flagship from Xiaomi will not see a global release. This would be a piece of bad news for those who are looking forward to the device.

After all, we, the tech enthusiasts, are pretty fed up with seeing Chinese manufacturers not releasing their flagship devices in the global market. It has been an annoying trend that is lasting for quite a few years now. But again, Xiaomi did not officially disclose this information. So, we will need to wait and see whether Mix Fold 3 will stay confined to China.
