The Mix Fold 4 is projected to become Xiaomi's first ever globally-available foldable Android smartphone in 2024 - then again, the satellite-compatible version dug up in its latest leak will probably remain exclusive to the Chinese market. Nevertheless, the tip also purports to confirm a potentially vital spec detail for the upcoming premium handset, regardless of connectivity level.

The 2024 version of the Mix Fold is thought to be its OEM's first foldable smartphone with official availability outside of China (rather than via retailers such as TradingShenzhen only) for once.

Now, it seems some Xiaomi fans might be able to welcome the new tech Redmi K60 into lives already set up with a first-party power brick for the device, as it would have come in the box with an older device.

Prolific leaker Digital Chat Station claims to have spotted the 24072PX77C, or a satellite-enabled version of the Mix Fold 4, in a new 3C registration. It clears the device to use the same 67W accessories as smartphones such as the Xiaomi 13, POCO F5 Pro and Civi 4 Pro

Accordingly, it seems like last-gen (and less then top-end) tech for a supposedly cutting-edge device - however, it might also be part of what makes the Fold 4 as thin and light as it is rumored to be. The same might be said of its inaugural clamshell counterpart the Mix Flip later this year.
