The Mix Fold 3 features an E6 OLED panel on both the 6.56-inch outer panel and the 8.03-inch inner panel both with a peak brightness of 2600 nits. The outer panel is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2, while the inner display has ultra-thin glass (UTG) to keep it safe.

The company’s latest foldable features a new 3-element hinge comprised of 198 parts and is said to last up to 500,000 folds. This also allows the foldable to lay flat without a prominent crease on the inner display.

Around the back, it features Xiaomi and Leica co-engineered Summicron lens led by a 50MP main lens with Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) OIS. This is accompanied by a 13MP ultrawide lens, a 10MP 3.2x portrait telephoto snapper, and a 10MP 5x telephoto sensor. Both the outer and inner panels have 20MP cameras as well.

Under the hood, it has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Leading Version with up to 16GB RAM and up to 1TB storage. Yes, the chipset is the same overclocked variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 as the RedMagic 8S Pro announced last month.

It is uncertain if we will see this foldable in the global market. It’s probably best not to keep our hopes up since the Mix Fold 2 was also a China-exclusive device.
