A teaser video has been revealed for Xiaomi’s folding phone. The video was posted by Xiaomi co-founder and president Lin Bin.
The video is almost one minute long and details the double folding phone. Unlike other foldable phones, including those shown at CES earlier this month, both sides of this phone can fold. This transforms the device into something more compact and practical.
The device by Xiaomi leaked earlier this month, and is set to compete against upcoming devices from Samsung, Royole, Huawei and others. Bin revealed the the development team needed to conquer –
“a series of technical problems such as flexible folding screen technology, four-wheel drive folding shaft technology, flexible cover technology, and MIUI adaptation.”
The video shows the phone in the various states between smartphone and tablet modes.
We hope to get our hands on one of these devices as early as possible and to see if this is what we can expect from smartphone tech, or if we are just in a transition phase before things really start to get interesting.
