New renders of Xiaomi foldable smartphone show that it is a double folding device
Foldable smartphones seem to be a thing this year with companies such as Huawei and Samsung about to unveil their very own. Even Xiaomi has admitted that they are working on one and now 3D renders of their device has surfaced online, showing that it is a double foldable design.
Xiaomi publicly announced that they were currently working on a foldable smartphone. Lin Bin, CEO and co-founder of Xiaomi, shared a video teasing the device on his Weibo page. The display is on the outside of the device and the double folding turns the device into somewhat of a table looking thing
He claimed that the company has addressed several issues in regards to their foldable smartphone which include adjustments to their MIUI, a way to make their foldable displays last, the folding mechanism as well as several other technical issues.
Renders show the device able to be folded on two sides and it will meet exactly in the middle on the back. The power button is placed on the top of the device and a USB-C port is on the bottom. Oddly, we have seen the camera interface on the device but not sensors on the device itself.
So far, two names have been dubbed for the device which has not been finalized which are the Xiaomi Dual Flex and Xiaomi MIX Flex but they are still looking for better name suggestions (May I suggest the Folding Table Phone?). Here’s to hoping that Xiaomi brings their foldable smartphone to MWC 2019. For the latest news on Xiaomi, TechNave.com is the place to watch out for!
