Foldable phones are starting to mature as newer models now have sturdier and thinner builds, attractive design, and of course, flagship specs. Those are the things you’d find on Xiaomi’s second foldable phone, the Mix Fold 2.

The Xiaomi Mi Fold 2 is one of the thinnest foldable phones in the market today. It is 11.2mm thick when folded, but only 5.4mm when unfolded. To give you an idea, the also-new Galaxy Z Fold 4 is 15.8mm and 6.3mm, respectively.


It is pretty light, too, at 262g, and boasts Xiaomi’s new hinge that uses alloy and carbon fiber materials.

Now, let’s get to the main event. The Mi Fold 2 has an enormous 8-inch LTPO2 OLED screen with a 2160 x 1914 pixel resolution and a variable refresh rate that can go from 1Hz to 120Hz.


The panel is called Eco2 OLED that eliminates the polarizer layer for improved transparency while importing power efficiency.

This main screen also has Dolby Vision, HDR10+ certification, and Schott UTG glass for durability.


“Main screen?” you ask? That’s because, just like the Z Fold 4, this one has a cover screen for more smartphone-like tasks. It has a 6.56-inch size, with a tall 21:9 aspect ratio, 120Hz refresh rate, and even has its own selfie camera.

Like the 12S Ultra, this new Xiaomi flagship also get the Leica special treatment. The main camera, which is a 50-megapixel IMX766 sensor with OIS, has Leica optics.


The device will also have Leica Authentic and Vibrant photographic styles, as well as other filters from the renowned photograph brand.

Next to the main shooter is a 13-megapixel ultra-wide lens with a 15mm equivalent as well as an 8-megapixel telephoto that can do 2x zoom with a 45mm equivalent.


It then has a 4,500mAh battery, paired with a 67W wired fast charging. Sadly, it doesn’t seem to come with wireless charging.

Lastly, the device will ship with the latest Android 12 operating system with the brand’s MIUI Fold 13 on top.


The Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 comes in two models: 12GB/256GB and 12GB/1TB for CNY8,999 (around Php74,400) and CNY11,999 (around Php99,200), respectively. It will be available starting August 16 but it’s not clear if it will make it to the global stage or in other markets outside China.
