Xiaomi is predicted to launch a second-gen foldable phablet in 2022. This "Mix Fold 2" is painted as a device with multiple, and potentially crucial, upgrades compared to its alleged predecessor in a new leak, one that even hints its manufacture might be adapted to incorporate the newest and fastest chipset possible.

Xiaomi launched its inaugural foldable as the Mi Mix Fold: however, its successor is projected to do so as the Mix Fold 2. According to the knowledgable leaker Digital Chat Station, this is far from the only refinement destined for the second-gen flagship.

The Mix Fold 2 is still predicted to launch with a Galaxy Fold3-like form factor. Accordingly, its cover display is now allegedly set at about 6.5 inches, whereas its main display might come in at about 8 inches in diagonal length. Both might improve on the first-gen Mix Fold's most glaring discrepancy: its standard 60Hz refresh rate in its own primary screen.

This flexible panel is now tipped as much more crease-resistant compared to its forebear, and, moreover, to have LTPO technology on top of that. Digital Chat Station also now makes links between the Mix Fold 2 and advanced features such as smart dimming for improved eye protection: however, it seems these features might be destined for the cover screen alone.

The Mi Mix Fold debuted with the Snapdragon 888: however, its potential replacement might be headed for the 8 Gen 1+ (or Qualcomm SM8475), an upcoming top-end SoC currently touted to become what the existing 8 Gen 1 perhaps should have been. To this end, Xiaomi is now rumored to be prepared to hold the Mix Fold 2's production and launch back for the sake of including the newer processor in 2022.
