The Chinese corporation Xiaomi continues to rapidly amaze the whole world, and it took it to create a new mobile device with a foldable body and flexible screen. The novelty was named Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold, having a very attractive design, capabilities and technical equipment. Yes, this premium phone is not too cheap, but it belongs to the premium class, that is, no one says that everyone should easily afford it. Gradually, over the years, smartphones with such capabilities will become much cheaper, thanks to which a wider circle of people will be able to buy them, but for now they cost a lot, so many people cannot afford them.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold smartphone is equipped with two screens, one of which is external, having a diagonal of 6.52 inches (2520 by 840 pixels). The internal screen boasts an 8.01-inch diagonal and a resolution of 2480 by 1860 pixels, which corresponds to a 4: 3 ratio. The large screen has a refresh rate of 60 Hz, while the external one is 90 Hz, but they are both made using AMOLED technology, which, in turn, has an extremely positive effect on their attractiveness. Otherwise, the novelty is equipped with an advanced eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor with a clock speed of 2.84 GHz, Adreno 660 graphics, and at the same time 12/16 GB of RAM and 256/512 GB of internal memory.
The mobile device has support for simultaneous operation with two SIM cards, a triple main (108 Mp + 13 Mp + 8 Mp) and 20 Mp front cameras, as well as, in addition to all this, a 5020 mAh battery. For recharging, the USB Type-C interface is used, and the manufacturer claims support for fast charging with power up to 67 watts. Otherwise, the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold boasts Harman Kardon stereo speakers, a Gorilla Glass Victus tempered glass body, a side fingerprint scanner, and Face Unlock. The dimensions of the phone are 173.27 x 133.38 (69.8) x 7.62 (17.2) mm, while it weighs 317 grams.

The basic version of the novelty with 12/256 GB of memory is estimated at 116,000 rubles, while the standard version with 12/512 GB is estimated at 127,000 rubles.
