To recall, the Mi MIX Fold looks a lot like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 and even copies its vertical folding style.

The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 mobile platform and comes with up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage.

There is support for quad rear cameras (a 108-megapixel main camera, a 13-megapixel wide-angle lens, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens, and an 8-megapixel macro lens). The front camera stands at 20-megapixel.
The foldable phone is backed by a dual-cell 5,020mAh battery, which supports 67W fast charging. It runs MIUI 12 based on Android 11. Additionally, it comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
