Lin Bin, the co-founder of Xiaomi, just posted a preview of an upcoming foldable smartphone on his Weibo account. Though the device is merely a prototype, Lin Bin mentions that Xiaomi would consider mass producing the folding gadget if there's enough interest in it. It's possible that such a device could eventually come to the U.S, as Xiaomi said they were trying to ramp up their overseas presence last year. Thanks to TechRadar for spotting the post, and their suggestion of healthy skepticism is good advice to take, given how clunky previous foldable devices have been. Check out the video and the (very rough) post translation here. Xiaomi double folding mobile phone is coming! After conquering a series of technical problems such as flexible folding screen technology, four-wheel drive folding shaft technology, flexible cover technology, and MIUI adaptation, we made the first folding screen mobile phone, which should be the world's first double folding mobile phone. This symmetrical double-folded form perfectly combines the experience of the tablet and mobile phone, which is both practical and beautiful. Although it is still an engineering machine, it is sent out for everyone to see. Welcome everyone to forward / comment / like. If you like it, we will consider making a mass production machine in the future. In addition, we want to give this engineering machine a name, what do you think is good? I think of two: Xiaomi Dual Flex, Xiaomi MIX Flex. Welcome everyone to make suggestions!
