Undoubtedly, Xiaomi is focusing on the MIX Fold 3 for now, despite the apparent 3-hour runtime of next week’s event. To that end, Xiaomi has now shared numerous teaser images of the foldable on its Chinese and global social media channels. Seemingly, the MIX Fold 3 retains the comparatively thin design of its predecessor while adding a more stable hinge that allows the device to mimic Samsung’s Flex Mode.
Also, Xiaomi has revealed that the MIX Fold 3 will utilise punch-hole selfie cameras on both displays, unlike the Galaxy Z Fold5. Moreover, it appears that Xiaomi’s next foldable has cameras with f/1.8 to f/2.9 apertures, which deliver 15-115 mm equivalent focal lengths too. In other words, the MIX Fold 3 is shaping up to take on the camera capabilities of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, despite its somewhat compromised form factor. The MIX Fold 3 will serve as a showcase for other new camera hardware as well, including a compact periscope module.
