Xiaomi Phone Folds Twice

Share

On Twitter, high-profile industry tipster Evan Blass has shared a video allegedly showing off Xiaomi's own take on the foldable smartphone design.

As you can see, the panel folds in two places. Earlier a year ago, ET News had reported that Xiaomi was developing an "outfolding" phone with plans to release it sometime in 2019. Samsung's foldable device was basically manufactured to function as a phone as it flexed inwards into a smartphone once the user wanted to make a call. Even the app draws along with status bar icons and lock screen shortcuts clearly indicate a Xiaomi device.

Xiaomi is also reportedly working on its next Android One device. 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.

Unlike Samsung's foldable phone, the Xiaomi device can actually be folded twice.

While it is hard to figure out which brand the foldable device belongs to (thanks to the dark background!), the icons appearing on the screen suggest that it is the Xiaomi foldable smartphone is making. Samsung started it with its Galaxy F and now we have a slew of companies like Apple, Oppo, Huawei and now Xiaomi.

Next thing is that the device is folded from the left-hand side, turning it into a smartphone with curved edges on both sides.

Samsung's first foldable phone will burn a hole in your wallet if reports of its price prove accurate.

After graduating to completely bezel-less screen designs in 2018, smartphones brands have moved their focus towards devices with foldable screens. The famous leakster Evan Blass has posted a 20-second video of a foldable device but he isn't sure about the authenticity of the video as of now.
