The Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 is tipped to be more compact than its predecessor

Xiaomi is said to have a second generation of its flexible-display flagship series in the works. The latest leak on this subject has what might be good news and bad news for fans of the original Mix Fold. On one hand, the device's successor has been redesigned to have more "normal", smartphone-like, dimensions; however, it seems the resulting main screen may not be to one eminent leaker's liking.

Xiaomi is rumored to have a Mix Fold 2 in the works for a release in 2022. Now, the alleged second-gen flagship phablet has popped up in another new leak by the reliable tipster Digital Chat Station. While the famous Weibo account now has a lot of things to say on this subject that many mobile tech fans may want to hear, there is also one major potential downside included in the new post.

Digital Chat Station now asserts that the Xiaomi "Mix Fold 2" will launch with a main display with a 2K resolution and a "high" refresh rate. The leaker also now purports to confirm that this panel will be driven by the "SM8450" (or Snapdragon 8 Gen 1) SoC.

The Mix Fold 2 is also now tipped to launch with improved usability along with this updated silicon, particularly in terms of handling. The OEM settled on a highly atypical footprint in its forebear (especially when closed); however, Digital Chat Station now claims that it has re-evaluated its industrial design this time around.

The Fold 2's dimensions now apparently mimic those of the Honor Magic V most closely, resulting in a "more square" main display that follows the trend set by the OPPO Find N for improved pocketability and crease-resistance.

However, this might imply that the second-gen Xiaomi foldable will launch with a smaller main display (whereas the OEM proudly boasted of beating Samsung in this regard with an 8.01-inch panel in 2021), especially if it has indeed dropped the 4:3 aspect-ratio of its predecessor.

My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations.
