WATCH: World's 1st double-folding smartphone by Xiaomi? What co-founder confirmed
Xiaomi folding phone: Xiaomi co-founder and president Lin Bin has confirmed that the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is working on a foldable smartphone. In a video posted on his Weibo account, Lin Bin gave the first glimpse of how Xiaomi's foldable smartphone may look like. The video showed a prototype of the smartphone which was called "world’s first double folding mobile phone" by Bin. In this 51-second long video, Bin not just showed the prototype but also talked about the technical challenges to create a device with flexible folding screen technology, four-wheel drive folding shaft technology, flexible cover technology, and MIUI adaptation.
Since only a prototype of the smartphone has been prepared so far, it is unlikely to be launched anytime soon. The company is still undecided on what it would be calling the phone. According to Bin, Xiaomi has discussed Xiaomi Dual Flex and Xiaomi Mi Flex as two possible options.
