The foldable has no selfie camera. On the back, the phone has a 6.5-inch OLED display with 2520 x 840 pixels and a 90Hz refresh rate. It has a 27:9 aspect ratio.

The Mi MIX Fold has a triple camera setup. There is a 108-megapixel primary sensor, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, and an 8-megapixel ‘liquid lens’ that works as a 3x optical zoom lens and a macro lens as well.

Xiaomi says that its ‘Liquid Lens’ is powered by a company-made Surge C1 ISP that lets it focus faster and offer better White Balance with a higher dynamic range.

The device runs on the latest flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor and is powered by a 5020 mAh battery that supports 67W fast charging tech.
