We are hearing about the foldable Smartphones from a very long time and it seems that all the major smartphone brands are going to unveil their foldable devices in this year. Just a couple of days ago, we updated that the South Korean electronics giant Samsung may launch It foldable smartphone soon and it’s in the news from a very long time.
We also came through a report which suggested that Motorola is also working on a foldable device, and it is also said that LG will launch its flagship smartphone LG G8 and that will also come with a foldable display. We also heard that the Chinese smartphone brand Huawei also developing a smartphone which will allow folding. That’s not all, we are also hearing that the Mountain View company Google is also in the mood to launch a foldable device. In between that, Xiaomi was also reported in making a foldable tablet and today the company teased a foldable smartphone in a video.
Xiaomi President and Co-Founder Lin Bin have shared a hands-on video of the company’s first foldable smartphone. And the Xiaomi’s foldable smartphone can be folded from both the left and right side. In the video, we can see that the device is running on MIUI, there is no surprise in that. And the device does not have a notch or punch hole set up on the top of the display (thanks to the almighty).
It also has a Shiny finish but we cannot able to figure out whether the device has a glass body or not, the device also feels like very large but it can be converted into a compact device to use with one hand but only after it is folded from both the sides. Moreover, he also said in a post on the Chinese microblogging website that the company has overcome from the technical issues such as “flexible folding screen technology, four-wheel drive folding shaft technology, flexible cover technology, and MIUI adaptation” to build this double-side folding smartphone.
That said, the company hasn’t fixed any name for the device but Bin suggested two names for its upcoming foldable device – Xiaomi Dual Flex and Xiaomi MIX Flex. And the device is still in the prototype stage and there is no word about the timeline and when it will enter into the mass production.
