Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold specifications.
The Mi Mix Fold comes with a cover display and an in-wards folding 8.1-inch WQHD+ screen with a 2480 x 1860 resolution. The foldable AMOLED screen does not have any hole-punch cutout for the front camera and offers an edge-to-edge viewing experience. It also comes with Dolby Vision and HDR10+ support.
On the outside, the 6.52-inch 90Hz cover display has a 2520 x 840 resolution. It has 700 nits brightness and Dolby Vision support. The top-right corner of the cover display has a hole-punch cutout for the front camera sensor.
For a better audio experience, the foldable smartphone comes with a quad-speaker setup by Harmon Kardon. To make use of the large screen, the foldable smartphone comes with a desktop/ PC Mode that can be triggered with a three-finger swipe. It also supports split-screen and picture-in-picture mode. There is also a one-click stealth feature that disables the speaker and microphones for better security.
Xiaomi claims that the Mi Mix Fold’s display can be folded a million times. There is a hinge-mechanism made up of a non-magnetic steel plate beneath the display.
On the back is a triple-camera setup. It has a 108MP f/1.8 primary sensor. The camera setup also comes with an 8MP F/2.77 tele-macro lens with a 30x zoom. There is also a 13MP ultrawide lens with a 123-degree field of view. The tele-macro lens uses liquid lens technology, where the light passes through a liquid in order to vary the focal length of the camera.
Xiaomi Surge C1 chip
Xiaomi has developed a custom Surge C1 chip that is shouldered on the SoC. This custom ISP helps process faster auto focus, better white balance and higher dynamic range.
