Xiaomi is projected to launch a second-gen foldable flagship smartphone before the end of 2022. Now, according to the latest alleged "Mix Fold 2" renders, it will not look that much different when compared to its markedly skinny predecessor. The leaker responsible for this new image also now advises its potential fans not to underestimate its starting price nonetheless.

Xiaomi is rumored to keep 2022's flagship smartphone refresh season as foldable as possible with a second-gen release with internal specs of a considerable, if not outright significant, bump upwards compared to the original Mi Mix Fold. However, if the OEM's fans were still hoping for a design re-think that might address some of that foldable's potential real-world shortcomings, the latest leaks are no comfort in this regard.

The eminent leaker Ice Universe has posted a new image of a device which, with its Galaxy Z Fold-like proportions, could easily be mistaken for Xiaomi's inaugural flexible Mix variant. Nevertheless, it is endorsed as the Mix Fold 2, which means it could yet again ship with a secondary display of limited usability.

On a more encouraging note, that cover screen is depicted as the only one with a potentially distracting punch-hole selfie camera. There are very noticeable bezels, however.

In terms of pricing, Ice Universe also now warns aspiring Mix Fold 2 owners to stay "realistic" about how much they may need to pay for this allegedly Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1-powered device. That just might matter less to some should the device manage to launch internationally this time, however.
