Xiaomi has officially launched its first folding camera phone, the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold. This folding phone features a full roster of exciting features, including the first liquid lens seen on a camera phone. This lens technology is designed to incorporate the ability to use multiple focal lengths in one singular lens. 

This means that users will be able to go from a wide angle to a telephoto using a single camera. This liquid lens technology uses the principle of human eye bionics, featuring a lens-like structure with a transparent fluid wrapped in film.
