In the past three days, we met with four folding screen smartphones. They are the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, Flip 4, Moto Razr 2022, and Xiaomi MIX Fold 2. Among them, two are considered to be clamshell smartphones (Flip 4 and Moto Razr 2022), while two others are traditional foldables. Moreover, the Xiaomi handset is the world’s thinnest folding screen smartphone, with the thinnest part of 5.4mm. Also, it’s priced considerably. Today, this amazing handset went on pre-order, starting at 8999 yuan ($1335).
Frankly, the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 not only made up for almost all the shortcomings of the previous generation but also achieved the top level in the industry in many aspects. It surpassed competing products in terms of body thickness, screen quality, performance, hinge structure, and so on.
For instance, among its brightest highlights, we can mention the 6.56-inch Samsung E5 micro-curved screen on the outside and an 8.02-inch Samsung Eco OLED flexible screen on the inside. Both screens have a contrast ratio of 8 million:1, support a 120Hz high refresh rate, Dolby Vision, HDR10+, and many more.
This is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 smartphone, which also comes with a built-in 4500mAh battery supporting 67W fast charging. From 0 to 100%, the phone reaches in 40 minutes.
In this model, Xiaomi uses a self-developed technology, that is, the third-generation “droplet shape hinge.” The latter reduces redundant complex structures and makes the hinge more concise
As said, it is only 5.4mm when unfolded and 11.2mm when folded, which is roughly equivalent to the thickness of the iPhone 13 Pro Max with the case on. Also, its weight is only 262g. So you can carry it with you wherever you go.
Finally, our protagonist sports a 50-megapixel IMX7666 main camera, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2x zoom lens. Due to the Leica features, the phone is capable of taking photos almost identical to the Xiaomi Mi 12S series, including 8K at 30fps professional movies.
