Xiaomi building a three-side foldable tablet

However, as the video is shot in darkness, it's impossible to see what the device looks like.

In 2018 we have been introduced to the first foldable smartphone by a Chinese smartphone company the Royole, naming the phone as FlexPai. We are also likely to see more of Qi wireless charging, phones without 3.5mm port, IR assisted face unlock, glass backs on entry-level devices, smaller, teardrop shape notches. Xiaomi's business model strongly relies on undercutting its competition at the checkout. The wide range of affordable smartphones has been the key to Xiaomi's success. What do you think about foldable smartphone technology? The company is yet to confirm anything.

The FlexPai is rough around the edges but could be the world's first commercially available foldable tablet-phone.

Vehicle knocks down 8 people on iconic Tokyo street
NHK footage showed the van with a smashed front and paramedics carrying the injured on stretchers into ambulances. The Japanese news outlet stated in its report that is unclear to which execution the suspect was referring.

The alleged Xiaomi foldable phone/tablet can be a result of any deep fake editing, according to leakster Evan Blass. In contrast to Samsung Xiaomi's device in the video flexes one third outwards down to size compared to a smartphone.

The short video clip depicts an unknown person using the device in tablet mode, with the looks seemingly matching with the MIUI skin used by Xiaomi on its mobile devices.

We see new smartphone features every few months - starting from CES in January to various events through the year. When folded from two sides, it takes up the shape of a smartphone, and a tablet when unfolded. It could mean that the device has three parts: one with the main screen, a second to the right of the main screen, and a third on the left. In fact, the status bar icon at the bottom of the screen together with the lock screen shortcuts happens to be the biggest give-away of that.
