Xiaomi confirmed earlier this month that Mix Fold 3 will arrive in August and will be the first device, built on a new manufacturing line with improved design to ensure the strength of the foldable’s body.
Today, the official Weibo profile of the company confirmed the report once again, and added that Xiaomi and Leica developed a new solution for an “optical full-focus quad-cam setup”. This means that the Mix Fold 3 will have four shooters instead of three seen in both its predecessors.
Currently, only vivo and Huawei have foldables with four cameras on the back, and both have the same combination we expect to see from Xiaomi – wide, ultrawide and 2 telephoto cameras, one with a periscope lens behind. Details on the specs of Xiaomi’s implementation are yet to be released, though.
The Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 was the thinnest foldable at the time of its launch, while the Mix Fold was the first such device with 67W fast charging. One thing Xiaomi is yet to do with the Fold series is to launch them internationally, and we hope the third time is the charm, even if earlier rumors suggested it won’t happen.
