Xiaomi's Potential New Foldable Phone Looks Slick

  • Xiaomi may also have a foldable phone in the works

Notable tipster Evan Blass tweeted a video of what could be a Xiaomi tablet that folds into thirds, though he noted that he couldn't verify its authenticity. The company has been rumoured to be working on a foldable device in the past, and this is the first time we are getting a first look at the potential Xiaomi foldable phone. The handset, shown in the render above, features a primary display on the inside, as well as a secondary screen on the outside so that you can use the device when it's folded closed. The wide range of affordable smartphones has been the key to Xiaomi's success.

The rumor hints a phone manufactured by Xiaomi, and they are working on a foldable phone.

2019, like it or not, is going to be a year of foldable phones, phablets, or whatever we end up calling these devices.


Regardless of whether this video is authentic or not, it does provide another glimpse at how a foldable device could work.

Google Maps is launched and the text is in Chinese, which again fits with the Xiaomi theory, but certainly doesn't confirm it. If it is, it's just further confirmation that folding designs are becoming trendy within phone manufacturers' designs despite such a concept having barely reached the public enough to analyze audience interest. On the software side, the device appears to be running Android, with the OS looking a lot like MIUI.
