Xiaomi will officially unveil the Mix Fold 3 at a special event in China on Monday, August 14th. Shortly before launch, a prototype of the Xiaomi smartphone was discovered in the online database of the benchmarking service Geekbench. On board was an overclocked version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.
The main core achieved a clock frequency of up to 3.36 GHz. This is exactly the same clock rate as in the previously Samsung-exclusive “Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy” chip. At the same time, it is also about the values of the new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2, which already celebrated its premiere in the nubia Red Magic 8S Pro.
With the new processor, the prototype of the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 achieved a single-core score of 2,071 and a multi-core value of 5,419 points. Unsurprisingly, the test device ran Android 13 and had 16 GB of RAM. But there could also be other versions.
According to previous leaks and rumors, the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 will have an 8.02-inch main display with a 2K resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. We also get a 6.5-inch cover display with an FHD+ resolution and the same 120 Hz. The 4,800 mAh battery charges with a cable with 67 watts and wirelessly with 50 watts.
On the back is a quad camera system with a 50-megapixel main camera, an ultra wide camera, a 3x telephoto lens and a periscope zoom camera. In addition, an under-display selfie camera is installed under the foldable main display. The Mix Fold 3 will also be the thinnest horizontally foldable smartphone to date.
