Yesterday Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun already published the first pictures of the upcoming Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 and teased its slim design. As of today, there are now more concrete numbers and some additional details about the new foldable, which will start on August 14th. As a result, the new Fold measures 4.93 mm when unfolded and 9.8 mm when folded. For comparison: the Mix Fold 2 is 5.4 mm thick when unfolded and 11.2 mm thick when closed. The currently thinnest horizontally foldable smartphone, the Honor Magic V2, is 4.7 mm and 9.9 mm. The big competitor Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 is 6.1 mm and 13.4 mm.

The Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 owes its more compact design to an extensive redesign of the hinge. The new hinge is made of high-strength steel and wear-resistant carbon ceramic. It has 14 moving parts made up of 198 pieces in total. The predecessor, on the other hand, has 8 moving parts with a total of 87 components. The hinge holds the smartphone at any angle between 45 and 135 degrees. Its durability has been tested by TÜV Rheinland, which has confirmed that it can withstand 500,000 folds.

In the last few days, there have already been several teasers about the technical data of the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3. As a result, the main display has a diagonal of 8.02 inches, while the cover display has a 6.5-inch FHD+ resolution. Both panels have a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Basically, nothing has changed in this area compared to the 2022 model.

Compared to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5, however, the Mix Fold 3 shines with a flagship camera setup. In addition to a 3.2x telephoto camera, this also includes a 5x periscope telephoto with an equivalent focal length of 115 mm. Both zoom cameras and the main camera sport optical stabilization and Leica Vario Summicron lenses.

The battery capacity is not yet known. However, Xiaomi advertises a battery life of well over a day – “1.34 days” according to official information. In addition, the previous leaks have already revealed wired charging with 67 watts and wireless charging with 50 watts. What is still missing is information on the international availability of the Mix Fold 3. The previous models only reached the chinese market.
