Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 might be the thinnest foldable so far

(Pocket-lint) – We’ve recently heard rumours of Xiaomi’s next foldable phone nearing release, and that’s now seeming more likely than ever.

Seasoned leaker Ice Universe posted a video on Twitter showing the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 in all of its slim, shiny glory.

The video doesn’t give away too much, but, as the tweet says, it’s looking like it will be incredibly thin at around just 5 mm. 

You can see how the USB-C port spans almost the entire side of the phone, making it impossible to get much smaller, without going completely port-less.

We can also see that the phone appears to have a high-gloss golden frame, and a hinge not too dissimilar from the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3.

At the end of the video, we see the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 logo, complete with Leica co-branding, hinting that we’ll see some impressive cameras on the device.

The phone is expected to launch sometime this month and should feature an 8.1-inch LTPO OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate.

It’s also rumoured to be powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, combined with 16GB of RAM and 1TB storage.

The original Xiaomi Mix Fold was only sold in China and came at prices ranging from 9,999 to 12,999 CNY (or roughly $1,100 to $1,929).

We’re hoping this model sees a wider release and maybe a more wallet-friendly price tag, but we’re not holding our breath.
