A new slimmer, more durable, faster, and better high-end Xiaomi foldable!

The new Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 brings several upgrades coming from the Mix Fold 2 last year.

The device is now even slimmer at 10.98mm when folded compared to the 11.2mm of its predecessor. When unfolded, it is 5.26mm coming from 5.4mm. It is available in glass and composite fiber back versions.

The company also upgraded its hinge design which consists of 198 components and takes up 17 percent less internal space than its previous high-end foldable. Xiaomi claims that it is now more durable as it comes with a 3-element structure and 14 micro-hinges as well as a carbon ceramic steel rotating mechanism.

It also has a mini laptop-like mode as the hinge supports a 45 to 135-degree hover opening.

To make its design even slimmer, the company used a new vertically stacked motherboard designed by its engineers.

For the display, the main folding panel uses a UTG-glass-protected 8.03-inch LTPO E6 OLED screen with 120Hz variable refresh rate, and FHD+ 2160 x 1960 resolution.

The second screen (cover display) features a 6.56-inch LTPO E6 OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, 2520 x 1080 resolution, Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection, and an impressive max brightness of 2,560 nits.

Both panels have HDR10+ and Dolby Vision support.
