Xiaomi is preparing a version of MIUI 13 optimized for folding smartphones

Xiaomi is working on optimizing its MIUI interface for touch screens. If the version installed on the Mi Mix Fold already offers some specific functions, then an update has been deployed that significantly improves the system’s operation with the larger screen of the Folding smartphone. Here are the major changes that will benefit the successors of the Mi Mix Fold as well.

Mi MIX Fold is a very important smartphone for Xiaomi. And even though it hasn’t been released in Europe. The reason is simple: released in 2021, it topped the Chinese brand folding smartphone segment, in front of its main competitors, whether Huawei (which still weighed heavily in China a year ago) or Samsung. Quite expensive, the Mi Mix Fold has never been shy about competing with the different generations of the Galaxy Z Fold.
