The Next Generation of Ultra Slim Foldables with Xiaomi MIX Fold 2

The Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 represents a significant technical advancement in the ultra-slim folding smartphone market. With a folded size of just 5.4mm1, the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 provides a consistent viewing experience on both its inner and outside screens. With the newest Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 mobile platform, it also provides a genuine Leica imaging experience and exceptional power economy.

Self-developed Mirco Waterdrop Hinge

Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 is a ground-breaking design. It is one of the smallest folding smartphones on the market, with a folded body measuring just 11.2mm1—significantly thinner than many other foldable handsets. Both sides are barely 5.4mm1 when unfurled, providing a comfortable in-hand feel.

Xiaomi concentrated on perfecting the hinge – the main component of the foldable smartphone – to accomplish these form factor achievements. Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 has a self-developed Micro Waterdrop Hinge with a reduced bending radius, thinner screen modules, a customized tiny rotating hinge, and a carbon fibre double-wing floating panel created using an integrated solder-free precision technique. These highly integrated components, when combined, decreased the number of pieces to 87, allowing for a lighter and thinner hinge design.

Furthermore, both sides of the hinge employ space stacking technology and enormous concealed areas on both sides of the hinge for soft boards, resulting in a 20% improvement in space utilization and the 5.4mm1 flat design with balanced weight distribution.

Two displays, one exceptional viewing experience

The Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 features an interior folding design with two AMOLED flagship displays of varying sizes on each side. The exterior display has a 21:9 classic ratio design, which allows for outstanding compatibility with most apps while also considering user experience while handling. The 6.56″ display is made of Samsung E5 material, has a resolution of 2520×1080, a 120Hz fast refresh rate, a P3 colour gamut, and a brightness of up to 1000nit, providing it with an advantage over other popular displays due to its excellent user experience.

The Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 has an 8.02″ Samsung Eco OLED display on the inside. It employs POL-LESS technology, which replaces the standard polarizer with an ultra-thin colour filter and employs a black matrix material to decrease screen reflection. Light transmittance has risen by 33% compared to standard displays, while power consumption has decreased by 25%. This display has a resolution of 2160×1914, P3 colour gamut support, with LTPO 2.0 1-120Hz AdaptiveSync Pro. The display’s ultra-low anti-AR layer reduces reflectance to less than 2%, providing a more detailed viewing experience and pleasant aesthetics.

Both screens provide a great user experience, with 120Hz refresh rates, expert screen calibration on main colours, 1,000nit brightness, and Dolby Vision compatibility. The smartphone offers dual ambient light detection on the front and back, allowing for natural and seamless automatic brightness adjustment regardless of whether the screen is utilized.

MIUI Fold 13, the new standard for foldable displays

The Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 is powered by the newest MIUI Fold 13 operating system. It was created as a permutation of the conventional MIUI interface, and it is well suited to the foldable form factor, with screen interaction optimizations delivering improvements in user experience.
The smart screen desktop design adjusts to the foldable display and doubles the smartphone’s viewing area. In addition to maintaining visual consistency, it enables the usage of the hundreds of available MIUI widgets without distortion, improving both beauty and usefulness.

Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 system programs have been optimized for the huge screen, and many app interfaces have been updated for a better on-screen experience. To take full advantage of the widescreen, calendar, file management, voice recorder, notes, and other programs use a redesigned column architecture. Third-party application adaption will be carried out in accordance with Android 12L solutions, which will provide better native support capacity for third-party apps.

Other Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 features include improvements to smart screen interaction. Users may now split the screen with three-finger swipes. The sidebar, which may also be utilized to leave split screen mode, provides rapid access to floating windows. The appearance of floating windows and alerts has also been improved, and multitasking on a smartphone has never been easier.

Authentic Leica Imagery, dual-quality approach

Xiaomi has established a new imaging benchmark for smartphone photography by merging Leica’s imaging expertise with Xiaomi’s extensive knowledge in computational photography.
To achieve optical brilliance, the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 features a 50-megapixel IMX766 primary camera with 7P lenses that all have ALD low-reflection coating. A 13MP ultra-wide angle camera and an 8MP telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom and portrait capabilities are also included.

In addition to the Leica-certified Summicron lens, the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 has two picture styles: “Leica Authentic Look” and “Leica Vibrant Look,” both of which provide the photographer more creative freedom.

Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 features speedy camera startup, thanks to Xiaomi ProFocus compatibility, continuous shooting and capturing capabilities of up to 30 frames per second. In terms of video recording, the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 supports Dolby Vision HDR as well as both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos are video-watching technologies. Videos filmed on the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 will look great, especially when using UGC platforms that support Dolby Vision, allowing users to post stunning pictures on the internet.

Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 and flagship performance packed in an ultra-slim body

In addition to its groundbreaking thin and light foldable screen design, the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 has the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 mobile platform for responsive performance. The 4nm manufacturing method developed by TSMC allows for a considerable gain in energy efficiency while packing tens of billions of transistors into an area the size of a fingernail. The improved method allows for a 10% increase in CPU and GPU performance while reducing CPU and GPU energy usage by 30%. This improved design enables the ultra-slim smartphone to retain both better speeds and economy.

Excellent power efficiency allows for a long-lasting battery, with a full day of use being possible even when the inner screen is frequently used, with extended use when using primarily the outer display. Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 also packs a cooling system equipped with a large-area VC, rarely seen on foldable smartphones.

The high-quality VC offers a surface area of up to 2,520mm², enabling a 50% improvement in thermal conductivity compared to typical VCs. The inner layer of the battery is covered with second-generation boron nitride heat dissipation film, with an area of up to 3715mm². Finally, multi-layer high-density graphite sheets create a solid foundation for Xiaomi MIX Fold 2’s excellent sustained performance.
