The Mix Fold 2 has almost the thickness limit for a smartphone says Xiaomi CEO

The thickness of the body after unfolding is 5.4mm, and the thickness in the folded state is only 11.2mm thick. Even wearing a protective case, the thickness of Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 is 13.2mm. Which is comparable to the standard high-end flagships.
The smartphone is so thin because it uses a self-developed micro-droplet shape hinge. Through the zero-welding integrated precision process, the number of rotating shaft parts has been greatly reduced to 87. At the same time, a customized miniature dumpling chain mechanism and a variety of high-tech materials are in use. To reduce the weight of the single rotating shaft by 35% compared with the industry average. Also, the thickness is reduced by about 25%.
