Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold Display
Mi Mix Fold comes with two displays — one on the outside and one on the inside. The primary display inside sees Xiaomi using a large 8.01-inch foldable AMOLED panel. In turn, it can process up to WQHD+ resolutions. Moreover, the panel also supports Dolby Vision for improved visual quality and clear images. The company claims the display tests for up to a million folds.
However, on the outside, Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold has a 6.52-inch AMOLED display that works at a resolution of 2520×840 pixels. The outer display has a rather wide aspect ratio of 27:9. Fortunately, this display supports up to a 90Hz refresh rate. You also get a 180Hz touch-sampling rate, 650 nits brightness, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision.
According to Xiaomi, it uses a U-shape hinge that is 27% lighter than the hinges in other foldables. The phone was put through 200,000 bends during its reliability test. In turn, then the number was pushed further to 1 million folds.
Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold comes with an innovative camera feature. It is also the world’s first smartphone with Liquid Lens technology. This concept uses the principle of human eye bionics, forming a lens-like structure with a transparent fluid wrapped in film, very different from traditional optical lenses. Using this technology, the phone also brings support for 3X optical zoom, up to 30X telephoto, and a minimum focus distance of 3cm all through one lens. As per Xiaomi, Liquid Lens also offers high light transmittance, ultra-low dispersion, and excellent resistance to extreme environments.
Additionally, Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold also uses a 108MP main camera and a 13MP ultra-wide-angle camera with a 123-degree field of view. The 108MP pixel main camera is equipped with a 7P lens, which can directly output 108MP pixel high-definition photos. The 123-degree ultra-wide-angle camera supports smart switching.
