Foldable phones are one of the most anticipated gadgets this year. Samsung already showed us its first foldable telephone last year and it is expected to launch later this quarter. There are other manufacturers including Chinese OEMs who are also working on their own foldable phone. A video has surfaced on the web today that reveals a foldable cameraphone said to be made by Xiaomi.
The nineteen-second video was shared on Twitter by Evan Blass (@evleaks) and it reveals the product which initial seems to be to be a large tablet before it is then folded into a smartphone. The icons are similar to that of Xiaomi’s MIUI however the video is dark and we can’t deliver out any branding.
Can't speak to the authenticity of this video or device, but it's allegedly made by Xiaomi, I'm told. Hot new phone, or gadget porn deepfake? pic.twitter.com/qwFogWiE2F

Unlike Samsung‘s smartphone which has 2 displays, Xiaomi’s own has just one large flexible display. The screen looks to be divided into 3 and you could fold the left and straight components behind the middle portion to switch to telephone mode. When folded, the product seems to be modest. On the other hand, we can’t tell how thick it is because the video is dark. General, Xiaomi’s foldable smartphone seems seriously neat and we can’t wait to look at extra videos and even pics.
