Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold, official the folding with liquid lenses and ISP Surge C1

Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold

Xiaomi is truly unstoppable and also presented its very first folding smartphone during the second part of Spring 2021 New Product Launch. Obviously the product is part of the most innovative range of the company, namely Mi MIX, but the news does not end there: it is equipped with a new proprietary ISP Surge C1 and liquid lenses.

Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold is equipped a 6.52 "external screen and a second 8.01" internal flexible OLED display with QHD + resolution, the largest currently available on the market in a foldable smartphone.

The internal screen has a 4: 3 aspect ratio to allow multitasking use with more open apps and have a larger work surface.

“Mi MIX Fold inherits the exceptional display quality of Xiaomi's flagship smartphones, which starts with excellent color performance. The device's 1 billion color display has been meticulously tuned by Xiaomi's color calibration algorithm, allowing it to achieve impressive color accuracy of JNCD≈0.29 and ΔE≈0.35. Achieving 900 nits of peak brightness and 600 nits of overall brightness, the display provides comfortable viewing in various settings, while the 4,300,000: 1 color contrast ratio, Dolby Vision® and HDR10 + support and DCI- color gamut P3 combine to create highly dynamic and lifelike images with vivid colors ”writes the company.

The external display always uses an AMOLED panel and has a 90Hz refresh rate as well as 180Hz touch sampling. The resolution is unfortunately only HD +.

The hinge, which we now know to be one of the most important elements of flexible devices, has a "U" -shaped design and the company claims that its weight is reduced by 27% compared to competing products. The smartphone has passed 200,000 opening and closing cycles in reliability tests and more than a million cycles in the most extreme tests.

The smartphone features four speakers made in collaboration with Harman Kardon for sound quality superior regardless of the orientation of the smartphone, also thanks to the support for 3D spatial audio, and a 5020mAh battery with fast charging support at 67W that allows a full charge in 37 minutes.

photographic capabilities, Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold uses a proprietary ISP called Surge C1 and designed by the company.

“The product of two years of development and RMB 140 million of R&D investment, this chip provides exceptionally high performance while taking up little space on the CPU and memory. This allows it to serve up an improved 3A algorithm and low-light focus capability for more accurate autofocus, auto exposure and auto white balance, significantly improving image quality. "

Not only that, Mi MIX Fold is also the first smartphone to use so-called liquid lenses.

The liquid lens uses the principle of bionics of the human eye, forming a lens-like structure with a transparent fluid wrapped in a film, very different from traditional optical lenses. The radius of curvature of the spherical surface can be changed thanks to a high-precision motor based on the technology developed by Xiaomi, which allows a 3X optical zoom, a telephoto lens up to 30X (mixed) and a minimum focusing distance of 3cm.

Thanks to this single lens it is possible to use the same sensor both for close-up shots and for panoramas or photos of distant objects. The lens also offers high light transmittance, very low dispersion and excellent resistance to extreme environments. It can keep the fluid shape in an environment from a minimum of -40 ° C to a maximum of 60 ° C, guaranteeing long-lasting and high-quality optics according to Xiaomi.

To complete the photographic sector we find a camera 108MP main camera with seven elements (7P) lenses as well as a 13MP ultra-wide angle secondary camera and 123 ° FOV.

Obviously this is a real flagship, so it is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC 5G, LPDDR5 RAM memories and UFS 3.1 storage for maximum speed of use.
