Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 comes with Leica cameras in August

Xiaomi's new Smart Factory is now complete. And the first model to be mass-produced is the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3.

It’s official: Xiaomi President Lu Weibing announced today that the Mix Fold 3 will be released in August. The good news emerged in response to a question in the comment section of Chinese social network Weibo. The post was actually about the latest update regarding Xiaomi’s production capacities. The new Smart Factory has now been officially completed. And the first model to be mass-produced will be the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3.

The CEO’s Weibo post also indicated that the new factory has received many improvements in terms of manufacturing systems. Among other things, Xiaomi ensures that the Mix Fold 3 is thinner and more resistant at the same time. Unsurprisingly, the new foldable flagship will also get cameras from Leica again.

The predecessor Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 was launched in August last year. Therefore, Xiaomi seems to be more or less establishing a traditional date for the arrival of new foldables here. The Mix Fold 2 is 11.2mm thick when folded and just 5.4mm thick when open. This was already very thin and significantly more compact than the Samsung smartphones. But it seems that Xiaomi has managed to make the new Mix Fold 3 even thinner.

Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 also exclusive to China?

The bad news, on the other hand, is that all of this won’t be of much use to us in this country. Like its predecessors, the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 will probably remain exclusive to the Chinese market. Unfortunately, something similar also happens with the Oppo Find N foldables and the vivo X Fold cell phones in recent years. The big winner is Samsung and the loser is the consumer.

The Mix Fold 3 is rumored to have a selfie camera under the main display, a 5x periscope zoom camera and will be waterproof. The Xiaomi smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset from Qualcomm. In addition, the foldable charges wirelessly with 50 watts.
