Xiaomi has announced a new foldable for Chinese users to consider buying — and for the rest of the world to stare at wistfully from afar. The Mix Fold 3 is going on sale this week starting on August 16th, and based on Xiaomi’s approach with its Mi Mix Fold and Mix Fold 2, we won’t be holding our collective breath for an international release.
