Chinese manufacturing giant Xiaomi unveiled the first foldable smartphone Xiaomi Mix Fold last week, which is now available for pre-order to everyone.
Recall that the first batch of smartphones, which included only 22 thousand units, was offered to order immediately after the announcement, but all smartphones were sold out in a few seconds. Now, the manufacturer said the smartphone is available for pre-booking throughout China.
From today all versions of Xiaomi Mix Fold are available in the JingDong store in “sufficient quantity”. Users are offered versions that are equipped with 12/256 or 12/512 GB of memory, which cost $ 1530 and $ 1680, respectively. You can also buy a ceramic version with 16/512 GB of memory for $ 2,000. Actual sales are due to start on April 18th.
The Xiaomi Mix Fold has a large 8.01-inch foldable screen as well as a 6.52-inch AMOLED screen on the outside. The manufacturer claims that the hinge part has been tested for 200,000 folding and unfolding cycles. Overall, however, the hinge is rated for 1 million cycles. The main camera uses image sensors with a resolution of 108, 13 and 8 megapixels. It is the first smartphone with a liquid lens that allows a single 8MP camera to be used for both optical zoom and macro photography.
