After Samsung, is Xiaomi working on a foldable phone too? Video leaks

Maps automatically switches from tablet mode to phone mode with a shorter search bar. The famous leakster Evan Blass has posted a 20-second video of a foldable device but he isn't sure about the authenticity of the video as of now.

Xiaomi is reportedly working on a tablet that can be folded into a thinner phone-like profile.

The leaked foldable smartphone from Xiaomi is running on the Chinese version of MIUI 10 with no Google Play Services. Call them anything. With display sizes on smartphones increasing by the day, foldable smartphones seem to be the way forward with Samsung said to pave the way with their speculated "F" series, a glimpse of which we saw a year ago at the Samsung Developer Conference.

Samsung wants its folding phone to have a long battery life. Based on the tweet, Evan has noted that the device is allegedly manufactured by Xiaomi. If this device is actually true, this could potentially mean that we could see foldable devices featuring an affordable price tag. With one part folded, the UI adapts to a smaller tablet UI.

As Samsung's "singular commitment to AI", Bixby will transform "from a simple mobile voice assistant to a scalable AI platform", Samsung's Eui-Suk Chung said at the Samsung Developer Conference. If the latest leak is to be believed, then Xiaomi's foldable phone is also not far away. Overall, if the foldable phone is indeed from Xiaomi this can be a game changer for the company.

A business laptop with 3 screens? The company had showcased how "overlapping hinges" could be attached to "flexible displays" to allow the device to bend. We can also see certain lags and app crashes when the handset is folded, which indicates that the device has not yet reached the final stages.
