Xiaomi President, Lu Weibing, just announced that the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 will be arriving on the market in August 2023. This information was gotten from his response in the comment section of a post he made about Xiaomi’s latest factory upgrade.
The new Smart Factory was officially launched today, and the first smartphone it will produce will be the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3. There have been lots of upgrades in terms of manufacturing systems to ensure that the Mix Fold 3 can be thinner and stronger at the same time. Just as expected, it will also have Leica-branded cameras.
The Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 was launched in August 2022. So, it seems like the month of August is now more or less a tradition for the new Xiaomi foldable arriving.
According to a recent rumor, the bad news is that the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 will apparently stay confined to the Chinese market just like its predecessor. This means it will not be launched internationally. Thought it will be a pity, but we are used to Chinese phone manufacturers being afraid to take their foldables outside of their home market.
The Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 has been rumored to come with an under-display selfie camera on the main folding screen, a 5x periscope zoom lens on the back, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset at the helm, and support for 50W wireless charging.
