Xiaomi has confirmed the launch of the MIX Fold 2 in China. The company will announce its second foldable phone in China on August 11. The original MIX Fold did not make it to the global market. Xiaomi has not revealed any details about the launch of the MIX Fold 2 outside China. Ahead of the official launch, MySmartPrice has learnt some key details from its industry sources about the MIX Fold 2’s pricing.
Our industry sources tell us that the MIX Fold 2 is set to get a significant price bump in China over the outgoing original MIX Fold. This is because the MIX Fold 2 is set to get a major redesign along with some hardware upgrades. Let’s take a look at the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 price, RAM, storage and other details known so far.
Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 Price
Xiaomi will unveil the MIX Fold 2 in China on August 11 to take on the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 launching on August 10 at Unpacked 2022. A day ahead of the official launch, the pricing details of the Mix Fold 2 have leaked. Our sources tell us that Xiaomi will launch its new foldable phone between CNY 10,000- 10,999 (roughly Rs 1,18,000 – Rs 1,29,500). For the price, users will get 12GB of RAM along with 256GB of internal storage.
Our sources further tell us that the MIX Fold 2 will arrive with 512GB and 1TB storage options as well. These two storage variants will also pack 12GB of RAM under the hood.
Xiaomi has already teased the design on Weibo, revealing its new camera island on the back. The top portion of the rear panel houses the horizontal camera setup. The MIX Fold 2 has a triple-camera setup and an LED flash inside the module. Like the Xiaomi 12S Ultra, the MIX Fold 2 will also come with Leica-tuned camera sensors. It is unlikely to feature the same 1-inch Sony IMX989 camera sensor found in the 12S Ultra.
The poster further suggests the MIX Fold 2 will be quite thin for a foldable phone. It will also feature a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, above which are the volume up and down buttons.
According to the rumour mill, the MIX Fold 2 will feature a 50MP Sony IMX766 main camera, a 13MP ultrawide camera and an 8MP telephoto camera with 2x zoom. It will sport an 8.02-inch OLED foldable display with a 2.5K resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. There will be an under-screen camera as well.
On the outside, the foldable phone will have a 6.56-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate support. It will pack a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC as well. The foldable phone is likely to pack a 4500 mAh battery and support 67W fast charging. It will run Android 12-based MIUI 13 out of the box.
