Xiaomi foldable phone prototype leaks in spy photos

Yordan, 15 January 2021

Samsung, Huawei and Motorola are already into the market for foldables, and it's only a matter of time before more companies join. Xiaomi looks to be making steady progress in that direction as a Galaxy Fold-like phone with MIUI 12 onboard has been spotted in spy shots in the Chinese subway, wrapped in what looks like a pre-production design-concealing case.

We are unsure of the state of the unit pictured, but if it's ready to be taken out in the wild than it's probably nearing the end of its development.

The image can only tell us this device runs MIUI 12 and we can also read it has 256GB internal storage. Also, there is no selfie camera to be seen - not on the top or bottom or any corners. The power key and the volume rocker are on the right side when the device is unfolded) and this is pretty much everything we know about it.

This isn’t the first time we hear about Xiaomi planning to go in the direction of foldables. Back in December, industry insiders revealed the company is expected to launch one in 2021, alongside Oppo, vivo, and perhaps even Google.

Fact check: My one year old Z Flip looks brand new. Why? Because the screen is fully protected whenever I don't use it. It's also half size when not using the screen, making it a lot easier to handle.
