In the video, embedded above, you can see Xiaomi president and co-founder Bin Lin giving an unnamed #foldingSmartphone a test drive. However, that the smartphone has been greatly developed and these issues have been quashed. After tackling flexible folding display, four-way folding hinge, flexible cover tech, MIUI adaptation and other technical challenges, we have made the first foldable phone, and should also be the world's first dual-folding phone. Meanwhile, many phone makers already expressed their intentions to showcase foldable handhelds at MWC this February. Nobody would need an active display that is not in use thus this is a problem that Xiaomi need to sort out. The idea of the fold outside phone is that only a single display is required as when the phone is folded in half to be the size of a normal phone the display is still visible. Taking this forward, the company has officially teased the foldable device, hinting at a launch that might take place pretty soon. The company is yet to announce the official name of its phone with double folding design. Possible names for the device are the Mi Dual Flex and the Mi MIX Flex, but Bin says Xiaomi is open to suggestions from fans.

'This symmetrical double-folded form perfectly combines the experience of the tablet and mobile phone, which is both practical and lovely.

Kohli pointed out the importance of adapting plans to the relatively small grounds in New Zealand. He behind Sachin Tendulkar (652 in 18 matches) and Virender Sehwag (598 in 12 matches).

Moreover, the foldable smartphone runs a modified version of MIUI which automatically optimises the screen content while users shift between the mobile and tablet mode. In the video, the Bin can be seen holding the unfolded device in between his thumb and little finger which suggests that it could be featuring a screen of around 6 inches. Where's the camera? What's the display resolution? Between the folding mechanisms, flexible display, and other essential components, it's clear that this isn't your average Xiaomi device. The transition from tablet to a phone is also quite seamless, as no stutter was seen in the video.
