The Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 smartphone is set to debut in China with pricing starting at 8,999 Chinese Yuan (CNY), which is equivalent to 1,143 EUR.
Arriving just a year after its previous foldable model, the Mix Fold boasts an upgraded hinge design, which results in a folded brushed metal body measuring less than 11 mm in thickness. The device features a 6.56-inch external display for checking messages, and when unfolded, it reveals an 8.03-inch inner screen. Xiaomi has noted that enhancements to the display driver have boosted the 4,800 mAh battery’s lifespan by 52 percent.
Thanks to Qualcomm’s latest flagship chip, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, specifically the “Leading Version” tailored for high-performance premium smartphones, the Mix Fold 3 offers 67W fast charging and 50W fast wireless charging. On the rear, there is a four-sensor camera system developed through Xiaomi’s collaboration with Leica. This camera setup spans focal lengths ranging from 15 mm (ultra-wide) and 23 mm (main) to 46 mm (main) and 75mm (telephoto), extending to 115 mm (periscope). The device also houses a camera on the inner screen to facilitate video calls.
The Mix Fold 3 is available in gold or black variants, with a special edition crafted from Xiaomi’s composite fiber material. Storage options include 12GB+256GB, 16GB+512GB, or 16GB+1TB.
In addition to the smartphone, Xiaomi launched the Smart Band 8 Pro, a new smart band starting at 399 CNY (€50), and a 14-inch version of the Xiaomi Pad 6, which comes equipped with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip and a 10,000 mAh battery. This larger “Max” tablet variant is priced at 3,800 CNY (€478). The smaller 11-inch version, powered by the Snapdragon 870, is available outside China, starting at EUR 399 with 6+128GB storage. Optional stylus and detachable keyboard accessories can be added to expand the tablets’ functionalities.
Furthermore, Xiaomi presented CyberDog 2, an updated iteration of its robotic dog. This new model, weighing 8.9 kg and sized akin to a Doberman, employs Xiaomi’s self-developed CyberGear Micro-actuator, enabling a wide range of movements such as back flips and recovering from falls. It integrates 19 sensors for vision, touch, and hearing. The CyberDog 2 is expected to be available in China for 12,999 Yuan, i.e. 1,642 euros.
