Introducing Mi MIX FOLD, Xiaomi’s first foldable smartphone
Boasting a series of world firsts with Xiaomi’s Surge C1 ISP and a Liquid Lens, Mi MIX FOLD sets a new milestone for the smartphone industry
Beijing, CHINA, March 30th – Xiaomi officially launched its first foldable smartphone, Mi MIX FOLD, at the Spring 2021 New Product Launch that previously saw the announcement of Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra. The device boasts even more firsts, debuting Xiaomi’s own Surge C1 Image Signal Processor optimized for professional photography, and sporting the first Liquid Lens seen in a smartphone.
Largest in the industry: 8.01” foldable smartphone display
As Xiaomi’s first foldable smartphone, Mi MIX FOLD adopts a U-shaped hinge design, which has greatly improved weight and reliability. Equipped with a flexible 8.01” WQHD+ resolution OLED display, Mi MIX Fold offers an ultra-large 4:3 aspect ratio, making it not only the largest foldable smartphone display currently on the market, but also putting it above some tablets in size. Offering the unique charm of a foldable smartphone with its tablet-sized display in a small and compact package, Mi MIX FOLD provides an unrivalled experience for both work and play.
World’s first smartphone with quad speakers, SOUND BY Harman Kardon
Having received widespread acclaim for its dual speakers on previous devices, Xiaomi further elevated the sound system on Mi MIX FOLD by creating the first ever smartphone quad speakers setup.
Mi MIX FOLD is the industry’s first smartphone to adopt true panoramic surround sound. Using Xiaomi’s own quad-speaker array algorithm, the device can realize 3D spatial audio field playback, which builds an additional sound dimension on top of the foundational dual speakers, creating a true 3D spatial audio listening experience.
The most powerful foldable system for high productivity and immersive entertainment
Powered by Dolby Vision and a quad-speaker 3D panoramic sound system, Mi MIX FOLD is an absolute beast for viewing content, offering an immersive viewing experience with vivid colors, full-bodied sound quality and a super large display surface.
Mi MIX FOLD also offers a completely unrivalled gaming experience on a mobile device. Mi MIX FOLD’s super large display is the ultimate productivity booster for busy people on the go, supporting a wide range of highly practical work tools such as split screen, multi-screen drag and drop, parallel windows, Desktop mode, AI meeting assistant and many more.
World debut of Liquid Lens camera and Xiaomi’s Surge C1 image sensing processor
The product of two years of development and RMB 140 million in R&D investment, this chip provides exceptionally high performance while occupying low CPU and storage space.
Mi MIX FOLD is also the world’s first smartphone with Liquid Lens technology, opening the era of bionic photography. The liquid lens 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. The radius of curvature of the spherical surface can be accurately changed thanks to a high-precision motor based on Xiaomi’s self-developed technology, which allows for 3X optical zoom, up to 30X telephoto, and a minimum focus distance of 3cm. The Liquid Lens also offers high light transmittance, ultra-low dispersion and excellent resistance to extreme environments. It can maintain the fluid form in an environment from a low of -40°C to a high of 60°C, ensuring stable, long-lasting, and high-quality optics.
Revolutionary Butterfly cooling system and flagship performance without hiccups
In order to efficiently use the area of its folding body, Mi MIX FOLD adopts a butterfly-type cooling system, which integrates large-area VC liquid cooling, thermal gel, multilayer graphite sheets and other heat dissipation methods.The total heat dissipation area is as high as 22,583.7mm2, which evenly distributes excessive heat and cools down the entire device, greatly improving the heat dissipation capacity during high-load computing operations, fast charging, and 5G high-speed downloads. Efficient heat dissipation allows Mi MIX FOLD to perform consistently and without hiccups.
