Announcement. Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 - August - the time of tablets and smartphones

August is the time of flexible smartphones.So the gentlemen from Xiaomi pulled themselves up. In China, the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 smartphone tablet was announced, the successor to the traditions of last year's Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold and a classmate of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 announced yesterday. Also top hardware, also two screens. similar ideology. If you bend the device, you use an external screen, a kind of smartphone mode. If you overclock it - you forget about the external screen, you use the large internal one - here's an almost full-fledged tablet for you.

In short, a really direct competitor for the Galaxy Z Fold4. Or not direct? Will appear outside the Celestial Empire, I wonder?

A curious feature - Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 is very thin, only 5.4 mm when unfolded. And - what a joke - it is one (!) Gram lighter than the Galaxy Z Fold4 262 grams. Intelligence is not dormant?

Both screens are AMOLED with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Internal - LTPO2, i.e. with dynamic frequency control.

With the geometry of the screens, everything is ... ambiguous.External, “smartphone”, has a diagonal of 6.56 ″ (101 cm²) and a resolution of 1080 × 2520 (418 ppi). It’s easy to figure out that here the size is like that of typical modern smartphones, and the proportions are quite familiar, 21/9.

But the flexible “tablet” screen has a diagonal of 8.02″ (206 cm²), that is, it is slightly larger than the Z Fold4, which has 7.6″ (183 cm²). Resolution - 1914 × 2160 (360 ppi). It is easy to calculate that the aspect ratio here will be 10.1/9, i.e. Before us is almost a square. Agree, you still expect a little more from a tablet. Well, at least in order to make it comfortable to watch the video.

There are no questions about iron.Of course, Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is here, so we are waiting for the usual million points with a tail in AnTuTu. RAM - always 12 GB, permanent - from 256 GB to 1 TB. And no support for memory cards, of course.

The battery is a few percent more capacious than that of Samsung - 4500 mAh. And high-speed charging - 67 W, here Z Fold4 nervously smokes on the sidelines.

With cameras, everything is fine, but no frills. There is only one front camera - see the traditional hole in the “smartphone” screen.

There are three rear cameras, 50 + 13 + 8 MP.The main sensor is the super-popular Sony IMX766, which is also used in high-quality mid-range smartphones, and not just in flagships. There is optical stabilization. Plus nameplate Lakey. 13 MP is a typical unsophisticated wide-angle camera. 8 MP - telephoto with a twofold increase.

Other. There is an NFC module, the latest version of Wi-Fi.The fingerprint scanner, I hope, is still located on the side, and not under the screen. There is no standard audio output, of course. But there is an IR blaster, you can turn on / off the TV, if you have one.

The price, of course, is not humane. ¥8999 (₽80600, $1330), ¥9999 (₽89500, $1480) and ¥11999 (₽107000, $1780) for the 12+256, 12+512 and 12+1024 GB versions respectively.
