Xiaomi’s Mix Fold 3 is the latest new foldable to launch in China and we now have a teardown video from WekiHome showing out the challenging work accomplished by the Xiaomi engineers.
The whole process starts like any other teardown by removing the SIM card tray and prying off the back plate which reveals one half of the device. The cover screen is also carefully removed exposing both sides of the back. Removing a few covers, screws and flex cables reveals the vertical stack motherboard and quad Leica camera system.
We then focus our attention to the dual battery cells with 2,580 mAh and 2,200 mAh capacities respectively. They are impressively thin measuring just 2.39mm and 2.88mm which helps keep the device’s slim profile.
Then it’s time for the star of the show – the all-new proprietary hinge mechanism which boasts impressive craftsmanship and multiple neat colorful water gaskets to help keep any liquids out. The new hinge is thinner than its predecessor but weighs a tad more at 23.4 grams.
