The Mix Fold 2’s unfolded LTPO display comes in at 8.02 inches, with a 2160×1914 resolution and a 1-120Hz variable refresh rate.

Xiaomi’s second-generation foldable will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, with 12GB of RAM and three storage options — 256GB, 512GB, and 1,024GB.

The Mix Fold 2 will ship with a 4,500mAh battery and come with 67W wired charging. Xiaomi boasted a 100% charge in 40 minutes.

The device will run on Xiaomi’s Android 12-based MIUI Fold 13 operating system.

As for the camera, the Mix Fold 2 will feature three Leica lenses — the main camera slot houses Sony’s 50MP IMX766, while the secondary cameras include a 13MP Ultra Wide lens and 2x Zoom telephoto lens.
