Xiaomi MIX Fold 3 sports some impressive specs that foldable fans would love to get their hands on.

Unfolded, the MIX Fold 3 reveals an 8.03-inch AMOLED screen with 2160×1916 resolution and a silky smooth 120Hz refresh rate. Folded up, there’s still a 6.56-inch exterior display for checking notifications. Both panels hit an eye-popping peak brightness of 2,600 nits.

Around back, Xiaomi partnered with Leica for a versatile quad camera system. There’s a 50MP main shooter, 12MP ultrawide, 10MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom, and another 10MP telephoto with 5x optical zoom. That’s some serious hardware that we wish we could test drive.
