Last year in August 2022, Xiaomi officially revealed its Mi Mix Fold 2, which is still the latest foldable flagship of the company. It is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 flagship chipset. As per the latest news from the industry, Xiaomi is going to reveal the next generation of this foldable device next month.
This morning, Xiaomi officially announced that the all-new Mix Fold 3 foldable flagship will be released in August 2023 in collaboration with the Leica Image Optics solution.
