Xiaomi Foldable Phone
We don’t know whether it will launch in 2019 or not, or if it’s a well made fake video or Xiaomi is actually working on such a device. Earlier this week a video surfaced online showing a foldable smartphone cum tablet running on MIUI. Xiaomi working on a foldable smartphone shouldn’t be shocking given its peers already into it. Even if the news is true, we expect the Xiaomi foldable smartphone by late 2019 or early 2020.
