Is it the future trend, or is it a diversion? Since the inception of the folding screen category, it has been facing a question of the soul: is it just a technological cool thing, or is it really practical and useful? Xiaomi answered today.
Today’s morning, Xiaomi officially announced a new generation of foldable display phone – Xiaomi MIX Fold 2, said to be “The last mile of foldable display”. In the afternoon, Xiaomi officially released a Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 promo video, which reveals a lot of details.
First of all, it is obvious to see that the thickness of Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 has changed by leaps and bounds this time compared to its predecessor, and the body after unfolding is almost the same thickness as the Type-C interface, just a little thicker.
In the past four years, the industry has made great efforts in folding screens, and the intuitive expression is that the foldable phones are getting lighter and lighter, the hardware of charging, battery life, and video is getting better and better, and the software adaptation is gradually improving, and the overall usability is greatly improved, but there is still one last big problem left before the real practicality: the thickness, Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 is a revolutionary solution to the problem of thickness.Xiaomi answered.
From this point on, you can see the ultra-thin body design of Xiaomi MIX Fold 2, which also confirms some previous revelations that the machine may have created the thinnest record for in-folded phones. In a later post, Xiaomi confirm that Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 thickness is just 5.4mm when unfolded, a huge improvement over the 7.62mm unfolded by the previous generation. Below is a comparison with another popular foldable display phone:
- Xiaomi MIX Fold 2: 5.4mm
- Vivo X Fold: 6.28mm
- Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3: 6.4mm
- Honor Magic V: 6.7mm
- Xiaomi MIX FOLD: 7.62mm
- OPPO Find N: 8mm
- Huawei Mate X2: 8.2mm
At the same time, the ultra-thin design of 5.4mm also means that this time the MIX Fold 2’s mid-frame material will be very solid and will ensure that the holes are opened at an ultra-thin thickness and meet factory inspection specifications. From the glossy look of the video, the material may be stainless steel, but new materials may also be used.

According to the introduction, Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 self-researched micro-drop form spindle, through zero welding integrated precision process, the spindle parts significantly reduced to 87, but also the use of custom miniaturized hinge mechanism and a variety of high-tech materials so that the weight of the spindle unit compared to the industry average reduced by 35%, the thickness reduced by about 25%.
In addition, Lei Jun posted an article for the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 warm-up, saying that the machine is equipped with Xiaomi’s self-researched micro water-drop form spindle, after 651 days. The technology uses an innovative integrated lightweight design to bring a smaller micro drop radius, a shorter spindle width, and a thinner hands-on experience.
Lei Jun stressed that the axis is the core technology of the folding screen, but also to deal with the thick technical barriers of folding screen phones. This makes Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 infinitely closer to the traditional straight flagship in its folded state, bringing a huge boost in portability.
