Xiaomi recently introduced the Mix Fold 2, a foldable smartphone with similar specifications to the Galaxy Z Fold 4. The device was launched in China, and at the moment, it is not known if the device will be launched globally. If it does, it will offer an affordable alternative to the Galaxy Z Fold 4 as it has been priced lower than Samsung’s foldable device.
