Xiaomi didn’t launch its foldable smartphone at the Mobile World Congress last month but the company did drop a teaser to show that it’s in the game as well. As Samsung gears up to release the Galaxy Fold next month, the company has now dropped another teaser to ensure that people don’t forget it has a foldable smartphone too. What it hasn’t revealed so far is that when we can expect this device to arrive.
Xiaomi’s foldable smartphone is quite like the Huawei Mate X. It has thin and regular bezels on all sides and it’s an out-folding design which means that the screen wraps around the outside when closed. It stands out from the rest because the foldable part actually folds twice.
This teaser also shows a reasonably fluid transition from tablet to smartphone phone, something that the Royole Flexpai leaves a lot to be desired for. Even though it has released another teaser for the device, Xiaomi still hasn’t said when it’s planning to launch its foldable smartphone.
There’s also no information about what it’s actually going to be called and how much it could cost. It will be joining a reasonably crowded field which will include rivals from both Samsung and Huawei. Some other manufacturers are working on their foldable smartphones as well.
