Xiaomi has announced the Mix Fold 3 which brings a couple of improvements over its predecessor that results in a much better foldable smartphone.

As if the Mix Fold 2 wasn’t thin enough — the thinnest in the world when it came out — the new Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 is now much thinner at only 5.26mm when unfolded and 10.89mm when folded. Xiaomi engineers managed to achieve this by designing a new vertically stacked motherboard.


Xiaomi has also developed an all-new proprietary hinge that’s made out of 198 components for 17% less space usage. The entire hinge system is more durable and now uses a carbon ceramic steel rotating mechanism.

The main display uses an 8.03-inch E6 OLED LTPO display with a 2160 x 1960 pixel resolution and a 120Hz variable refresh rate. It has HDR10+ support, Dolby Vision, Dolby Vision, and Ultra Thin Glass.


We have a similar E6 LTPO OLED on the cover that’s 6.56-inch in size, has a 2,560-nits peak brightness, and uses Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2.

Another big new feature is the periscope-style lens that has a 115mm equivalent to provide 5x optical zoom. It sits behind a 10-megapixel sensor.


The main sensor uses a 50-megapixel IMX800 sensor with OIS and a 23mm equivalent lens, joined by a 10-megapixel portrait lens with 2x zoom, and 12-megapixel ultra-wide (15mm). The camera system gets to have Leica optics. There’s a 20-megapixel sensor for selfies.

Of course, this high-end device is powered by a proper flagship chipset. It comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor that you can pair with up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. It has a decent 4,800mAh battery with 67W fast charging, 50W wireless charging support, and Android 13-based MIUI 14 interface.


The Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 has a price of CNY8,999 (~Php70,600) for the 12GB/256GB, CNY9,999 (~Php78,500) for the 16GB/512GB, and CNY10,999 (~Php86,300) for the 16GB/1TB. It will be available in China come August 16. No word yet if it will hit the international market.
