Xiaomi has firmly established itself in the competitive arena of foldable smartphones, rivalling Samsung's Z series with its innovative Mix Fold series. Now, as the tech world eagerly awaits, Xiaomi is set to unveil the 4th generation Mix Fold 4 and Mix Flip by the end of July.

Traditionally, Xiaomi debuts its latest models in China, and this year is no exception. However, there is growing speculation that the Mix Fold 4 might be available globally by the end of the year. In contrast, the international release of the Mix Flip remains uncertain, with no confirmation of its availability outside China.

Renowned leaker IceUniverse recently hinted at the international unveiling of the Xiaomi Mix Fold 4. He also made a bold claim that has the tech community buzzing: the Mix Fold 4 could become the world's slimmest foldable phone, potentially surpassing the Honor Magic V2, which currently holds the record at an impressive 9.9mm when folded.

IceUniverse’s track record for accurate predictions adds credibility to this claim. If Xiaomi manages to achieve this feat, it would mark a significant milestone in the foldable phone market. The pursuit of ultra-thin designs not only enhances portability but also sets new benchmarks for future innovations in smartphone engineering.

Another notable feature of the Mix Fold 4 is its expected IP rating for water resistance, making it one of the few foldable phones, alongside Samsung’s Galaxy series, to offer this level of durability. This advancement underscores Xiaomi's commitment to combining cutting-edge technology with practical features that enhance user experience.

In summary, the Xiaomi Mix Fold 4 is shaping up to be a groundbreaking device. With its potential to set new records for thinness and its anticipated global release, the Mix Fold 4 is poised to make a significant impact in the foldable phone market. Stay tuned as Xiaomi continues to push the boundaries of smartphone innovation.
