Xiaomi is doing all it can to make a mark in the foldable smartphone market. Its first foldable smartphone, Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold did not do badly. However, it is not enough for Xiaomi to make a significant impact in the market. Foldable smartphones are now very popular but only two brands currently have a grip on the entire market. A recent report from DSCC shows that Samsung and Huawei have 99% of the foldable smartphone market for Q3 2021. While Samsung has a 93% market share, Huawei has only 6%. The other brands with foldable smartphones including Xiaomi, Motorola, Royole, Microsoft, TCL, and others share just 1%. The latest report shows that the Xiaomi MIX Fold2 will use a 2K high-refresh foldable screen.
The Xiaomi MIX Fold2 earlier appeared on the IMEI database with the same information. In addition to the performance upgrade, the Xiaomi MIX FOLD2 will also bring relatively big changes in design. Its overall size and proportion will change, making the external screen more like a normal mobile phone.
At the same time, on the internal large screen, it will also make up for the shortfall of the previous generation, by bringing a high refresh rate 2K resolution screen. This will bring a higher and better large-screen user experience, and better crease control.
However, it should be noted that the Xiaomi MIX FOLD2 will not adopt an on-screen camera. This means that it will have a punch-hole on the display.

The internal screen has a refresh rate of 60Hz (screen size is 8.01 inches). The Xiaomi MIX Fold2 will upgrade the previous generation and it will also come with an under-display camera. In terms of specifications, the MIX Fold2 is expected to be equipped with Qualcomm’s new generation Snapdragon 8 Gen1 SoC. It should be the most powerful MIX smartphone at its launch.
