In a separate post on Weibo, Lei Jun detailed the Mix Fold 3’s development process which required Xiaomi engineers to reconstruct the device structure and its folding screen. Xiaomi also shared an official teaser video that highlights the Mix Fold 3’s revised design.
There are also hints of an entirely new hinge mechanism. The teaser poster shows the four Leica-tuned cameras on the back of the Mix Fold 3 which will in fact sport Leica branding and a periscope lens.
