Just a day after prolific tipster, Ice Universe, tweeted that the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 will be launched on 11 August, the company has taken to Chinese social media platform, Weibo (via PlayfulDroid), to confirm the date of the unveiling. 

The date is important for this launch, and 11 August  is earlier than we expected to see it, as it means we will see Xiaomi’s new foldable smartphone just a day after the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Fold 4 are launched on 10 August . The battle for the best foldable camera phone of the year is well and truly on.
