Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold vs Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2

Not that long ago, Xiaomi officially announced its new foldable phone in China – Mi Mix Fold. Seems like, Xiaomi was inspired by one of the biggest rivals – Samsung with its Galaxy Z Fold 2. In addition, the Mi Mix Fold adopts the same form factor as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2. This is the main reason that we decided to compare these 2 smartphones and find out their similarities and differences.


As mentioned above, both Mi Mix Fold and Galaxy Z Fold 2 adopt the same form factor. They come with an internally placed foldable display. Externally, both of the smartphones feature a secondary traditional and non-foldable display. In the case of the Mi Mix Fold, there is a larger display with wider diagonals. On the other hand, the latter comes in an additional ceramic version built with better materials. The Samsung Z Fold 2 offers a thinner, lighter, and compact body. As we can see, in terms of design, both of the smartphones are quite good. So, depending on your own preferences you can decide which one is better.

Both devices come with high-quality AMOLED displays. Though the Mix Fold is a Xiaomi phone, its display is made by Samsung. You get 2K resolutions and HDR10+ certifications in both cases. It is also worth mentioning that the Z Fold 2 comes with a 60Hz cover display and a 120Hz foldable Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel. While the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold has a 90Hz cover display and a 60Hz foldable AMOLED.

On the other hand, when talking about the external non-foldable displays, we should note that the Mix Fold has a 6.52-inch external panel which, unlike the Galaxy Z Fold 2, features a Dolby Vision. So, in this comparison, Mi Mix Fold wins.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold comes with a 108MP main camera, an 8MP telephoto sensor with 3x optical zoom, and a 13MP ultra-wide sensor, as well as a new Surge C1 proprietary image co-processor made by Xiaomi. Moreover, It’s capable of 8K video recording, whereas the Galaxy Z Fold 2 isn’t. At the same time, unlike the Mi Mix Fold, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has three 12MP cameras with dual OIS, 2x optical zoom, etc.


The battery capacity of the Mi Mix Fold is 5020mAh, whereas the Galaxy Z Fold 2 comes with a 4500mAh. This means that the Mix Fold should last more than Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 in most scenarios. Besides, it also supports 67W fast charging technology. It can be recharged roughly two and a half times faster. But here we should also note that the Samsung device supports wireless charging and reverse charging, while the Xiaomi device does not.

Other specs

The Xiaomi Mi Mix fold sports Snapdragon 888 paired with up to 16GB RAM and up to 512GB storage capacity. On the other hand, the Samsung device comes with a weaker but still flagship-class Snapdragon 865+. The Snapdragon 865+ is in the middle of Snapdragon 865 and 870. It offers up to 12GB RAM and the same 512GB storage.

In terms of split-screen abilities, the Samsung  Z Fold 2 is limited to up to 3 apps, whereas Xiaomi offers quite a different approach. Xiaomi’s MIUI 12 adopts a desktop / tablet-like UI.
