Xiaomi MIX Fold 3 – Hover mode

The new Hover mode enables users to utilize a portion of the unfolded display to control the device. As seen on a tweet with a GIF by Kacper, this mode enables functions such as media playback control, slide gesture for zooming, and adjusting brightness or volume through a simple double tap.

Hover mode should be a great tool for movie lovers, for example when watching a movie with a 21:9 aspect ratio you have the buttons in your hands letting you control the media easily. This is a mode that will make it very easy to control not only watching movies but also playing media like a song or video, so much so that Samsung already offers it in the Galaxy Fold series under “Flex Mode” naming.

We anticipate the grand unveiling of Xiaomi MIX Fold 3 to take place in August. This new foldable smartphone will showcase impressive features such as Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, a 6.56-inch outer display, and an 8.02-inch inner display.
