Regardless of the miscarriage of MIX Alpha, the last MIX mobile phone that Xiaomi can buy has to be traced back to the MIX 3 launched in October 2018. Today, this series representing the pinnacle of Xiaomi mobile phone exploration finally ushered in the newest member MIX Fold. As you can see from the name, this is a device with a folding screen. And Xiaomi’s first attempt can also be seen to be safe, choosing the internal folding scheme that has been verified by its predecessors Samsung, Motorola, and Huawei.
The inner screen of MIX Fold uses an 8.01-inch 2K AMOLED panel, which supports 1.07 billion colors, DCI-P3 color gamut, Dolby Vision and HDR10+, with a resolution of 2,480 x 1,860, and a peak brightness of 600 nits (not mentioned refresh rate, It may be 60Hz). According to Xiaomi, MIX Fold has passed the test of 1 million bending times, and whether there is a magnetic high-strength steel sheet on the back of the inner screen to make the screen “sturdy, flat and reliable.” Its hinge is 27% lighter than traditional hinges, and its bending life is at least 200,000 times. As for the outside screen size is 6.52 inches, it uses a 90Hz AMOLED panel with a hole in the upper right, which also supports Dolby Vision.
Not surprisingly, this phone is also equipped with Snapdragon 888 processor, LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. The device uses a butterfly-type heat dissipation structure and has the so-called “micro airbag” cooling technology. The phone has a built-in 5,020mAh battery that supports 67W wired charging. It also has four speakers tuned by Harman Kardon. The rear camera consists of three shots, which are the 108MP main camera (ISOCELL HM2 sensor), 13MP ultra-wide-angle and another 8MP camera. Among them, the 8MP is equipped with a pre-announced liquid lens, which can replace traditional optical lenses with liquid wrapped in a film, so as to achieve the effect of a single lens that can shoot “30x telephoto” and the equivalent of 80mm telephoto macro.
In addition, Xiaomi also added a self-developed surging C1 image signal processing chip to MIX Fold. It is independent of SoC and has a dual filter configuration, which can realize parallel processing of high and low frequency signals, and the signal processing efficiency is said to be enhanced by 100%. With Xiaomi’s self-developed algorithm, the device’s auto focus, auto white balance, and auto exposure capabilities can be “substantially improved.” As for the software, the MIUI pre-loaded by MIX Fold, in addition to the standard split-screen function of the folding machine, will also provide a one-key stealth mode for forcibly turning off the camera, microphone and GPS, as well as a handheld with start menu, control center, and multi-window elements. PC mode.
The MIX Fold standard version only has a pure black color scheme, and it offers two models of 12+256 and 12+512, and the prices are 9,999 and 10,999 yuan respectively. In addition to this, there is a special edition that replaces the glass of the chassis with ceramics. It has a aramid shading, the configuration is 16+512, and the asking price is 12,999 yuan.
