One more Xiaomi worth checking out... the Mix Fold

Published by at

Also announced yesterday was the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold, the company's answer to the likes of the Galaxy Fold series. Not quite as expensive as the latter, but still very highly specced, including quad speakers, a first for smartphones. I've cued up the launch event video to the right place below, so that you can catch up. PS. The 'liquid lens' does indeed make an appearance this time!

Specs include:

  • Unfolded dimensions: 173.3 x 133.4 x 7.6mm
