Xiaomi’s Potential New Foldable Phone Looks Slick

Posted on January 3, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Hardware with 12 Comments

2019, like it or not, is going to be a year of foldable phones, phablets, or whatever we end up calling these devices. Samsung has already teased its foldable phone, with Microsoft also expected to launch its much-awaited Andromeda foldable device sometime this year.

And that’s not all — as it turns out, Xiaomi is also working on a foldable phone. 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. Spoiler: it looks really cool.

Unlike Samsung’s foldable phone, the Xiaomi device can actually be folded twice. The device seems to have three different parts: the main/central screen, one on the left, and another on the right — both of which you can fold to only focus on the main screen:

But here’s the catch: the leaker, Evan Blass, says he is unsure of the authenticity of the video above, supposedly showing off the new foldable device made by Xiaomi. It is possible the video is just a fake, which would make a ton of sense as the device honestly looks a bit too good to be true. And if it is, Xiaomi might just have a solid looker here.
