The availability of foldable phones is expanding in the U.S. this summer, but these phones have been present overseas for several years. Among the pioneers, the Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi stands out. Recently, Xiaomi unveiled the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3, surpassing Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 5 in terms of build and camera capabilities. However, despite its advancements, it’s not yet available for purchase.

In terms of physical design, the Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 excels. It is slimmer than the Galaxy Z Fold 5, measuring around 10.9mm when folded compared to the Z Fold 5’s 13.4mm. When unfolded, the Mix Fold 3 measures 5.6mm versus Samsung’s 6.1mm. Although Samsung’s build is slightly denser, the difference is minimal in terms of weight. The Z Fold 5 weighs an advertised 8.92 ounces compared to the Mix Fold 3’s 8.99 ounces. However, the weight of foldable phones can still feel cumbersome in a pocket due to their folded-up configuration.

The Mix Fold 3 boasts an advanced camera system, featuring a periscope camera technology built into its 5x telephoto lens, providing stabilized distant photography. The primary camera is a 50MP lens with optical image stabilization (OIS), accompanied by a 12MP ultra-wide camera, a 10MP telephoto with OIS, and a 20MP front selfie camera.

Xiaomi has also enhanced the hinge mechanism of the Mix Fold 3 for durability, claiming 500,000 folds compared to the estimated 200,000 folds promised by Samsung and Google. Yet, the longevity of folding displays remains uncertain due to past experiences.

Regrettably, the superior Mix Fold 3 isn’t available in the United States due to trade restrictions, partly driven by concerns about spyware in Xiaomi phones. The rest of its specifications, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, up to 16GB RAM, a 4,800 mAh battery with rapid wireless and wired charging, remain on par with industry standards. The Mix Fold 3 is open for pre-orders overseas, starting at 8999 Yuan for the 12GB RAM and 128GB storage variant, approximately $1,236—a more affordable option compared to Samsung and Google’s foldables.
