Xiaomi’s Mix Fold 3 is the latest foldable to launch in China and now we have a tearjerker video WekiHome Showing the challenging work done by Xiaomi engineers.
The whole process starts like any other teardown by taking out the SIM card tray and lifting off the back plate to reveal 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 a vertical stack motherboard and quad-camera system.
We will then focus our attention on the dual battery cells with capacities of 2,580 mAh and 2,200 mAh respectively. Measuring just 2.39mm and 2.88mm, they are incredibly thin, which helps maintain the slim profile of the device.

Then it’s time for the star of the show – a new proprietary suspension system that helps keep out any spills, amazing craftsmanship and multiple clean-colored water shields. The new hinge is thinner than the old one but weighs a tad heavier at 23.4 grams.
