Bin wrote in his post that the form factor, which “perfectly merges the experience” of a phone and a tablet, is the result of the company’s work on Double foldable displays, folding hinges, and other technical challenges. He also said that it’s just a prototype at this point and that the company “will consider mass producing it” if it gets positive feedback from consumers online.

The Xiaomi concept Mobile phone was leaked on Baidu recently and was pictured in two separate renders. The phone uses a flexible screen that can be bent upwards, downward, as well as to the left and right. The images don’t show sign of a Photoshopped render so may perhaps be authentic. The Xiaomi Double Foldable Smartphone works both as a tablet as well as a phone. On folding the sides of the device it turns into a phone while on unfolding the sides the device can be used as a tablet.
