{Disarmed} Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold, first impressions: a bet that unfolds the best of its technology

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold, first impressions: a bet that unfolds the best of its technology

The Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold corresponds to the first folding Xiaomi device. We have been hearing rumors for a long time that a new version of this device is coming. The reality is that that time has not yet come. Now, more than a year after Xiaomi announced it in China, we have had the opportunity to test it at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold, Xiaomi's first foldable

There was a time when all manufacturers started releasing foldable devices. More than a year has passed since the launch of the company's first foldable and it is still being marketed in China.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold

This device is less sold than the Xiaomi Mix 4 , which despite having a less striking innovation than the folding of its screen and sold out when it was launched , the price of the device is also much lower.

If we look at the design of this device, we can see that it corresponds to a device that has somewhat more prominent frames than we are used to in conventional smartphones.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold

We are talking about a large device, since when folded it has an 8.01-inch screen when it is unfolded and a secondary 6.5-inch screen in a very widescreen format.

Another of the sensations that it offers in the hand, beyond the fact that the screen offers a gel touch, which is what offers the folding properties to the panel, is that it is very heavy in the hand.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold

Hinge is very robust and even has an inscription that draws quite a lot of attention.

The back is finished in ceramic , as usual in the Mix range with a 108-megapixel main sensor.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold

The Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold has a screen built on AMOLED technology when the device is folded and OLED when it is unfolded. The aspect ratio of the screen is not 18:9, but 27:9 , which makes the format much more elongated than usual.

The quality of the screen is good and functional , although as we already mentioned in the design section, it is a fairly thick mobile when it is folded, so it is designed to be used sporadically.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold

What we did not like is that the external screen did not turn on automatically, but we had to press a button for it to start working.

{"videoId":"x88fs7m","autoplay":true,"title":"XIAOMI MI MIX FOLD: PRIMERAS IMPRESIONES"}

When we open the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold, the sensation it offers us is of good construction. The hinge feels sturdy and the unfolding motion is smooth . Of course, perhaps it is too soft, since on occasion we have experienced the sensation that it could be closed by holding it.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold

Keep in mind that it is a sample unit that was at the Xiaomi stand and that it is not known how many times it would have been opened and closed , although that does not mean that the hinge should not withstand this effort perfectly.

When we have the device completely open, the weight is distributed much more and offers a lighter feeling in the hand . As for the crease of the screen, this is quite noticeable if we turn the screen off, and even if we run our finger, but nothing too worrying.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold

The viewing angles are correct and the hinge allows you to play with improving them relatively easily . This is undoubtedly one of the points where the new generation of Xiaomi's folding mobile will probably make a qualitative leap.

A very well adapted software

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold

Despite the fact that we do not know what version of MIUI the device was running, since the device settings were inaccessible, the software left us with a very good taste in our mouths.

Until the arrival of the Xiaomi Pad 5 , this device was the closest thing to a tablet that Xiaomi had launched. It had the possibility of launching an application when the mobile was open and when it was closed this app was still open , causing it to be projected on the 6.5-inch screen.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold

As we said, it was not automatic, but you had to press the lock button on the device to turn it on. Although it is only a detail, it makes the experience with the device a little worse.

As with other devices, the Mix Fold also had the ability to open many apps at the same time and spread the different apps across its 8-inch screen quite easily.

We also highlight a curiosity, and it is the adapted keyboard that the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold has, because it is divided into two parts to make it much more comfortable to write.

Looking forward to launching a new version of the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold

Access to devices as special as these is one of the charms of the Mobile World Congress . The truth is that we leave with a good taste in our mouths and encouraging Xiaomi to continue working on new folding devices.

The feeling has been good, there are details to improve and frameworks to take advantage of , but as we say, it is a device that is aging quite well for the time it has been on the market. Not even the surname Mi had been removed.

Xiaomi Mi MIX: how this family was born, abandoned and reborn under its most ambitious terminal, the Mi MIX Fold

Let us remember that the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold was presented in China more than a year ago, but this is not the only device that Xiaomi markets exclusively in China and that we have also been able to test, but there we also find the Xiaomi Mix 4, the first mobile of the company under the screen.
