Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 key specifications (rumored)
The battery on the upcoming Xiaomi Mix Fold will be smaller than that seen on the previous model. This reduction in battery size will make the Mix Fold 2 a slimmer device and also reduce its weight to come to par with the foldable competition. There will also be a notable improvement in the hinge to help make the device fold smoothly and quickly, hence giving it a snappy feel. The kind of hinge to be used is not yet known, but it’ll be lovely to see a hinge similar to that on the OPPO Find N or the Huawei Mate X2. The hinge as seen on these two foldable eliminates the presence of a crease in the folding half of the devices.
The Mix Fold 2 is codenamed “zizhan” and will use a process from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 series. The size of the screen when folded and unfolded will be similar to the previous Mix Fold. There might also be a bidirectional folding mechanism on the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 which will possibly enable the device to fold in two ways.
