On Thursday Xiaomi announced that Redmi is now a separate brand. Redmi is said to be a budget-centric brand while Mi will bring more premium devices to the masses. Then there’s Poco that aims at offering the best value for money phones like the Poco F1, which is the only Snapdragon 845 powered phone available under Rs 20,000. 2018 was good for Xiaomi, but it looks like the company is planning to make 2019 a better one. Xiaomi has several Redmi and Mi phones and also Poco F2 to launch this year, then there’s a foldable phone that the company is reportedly working on.

An alleged video is out on the internet showing a mysterious Xiaomi phone which can be folded from two sides. The rumored Xiaomi foldable phone shows that the device can be used as both as a smartphone and a tablet, similar to Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Fold.

Xiaomi Could Be Working on a Foldable Phone, Hands-On Video Surfaced Online


Xiaomi is also reportedly working on its next Android One device.
Xiaomi has been a huge success in a hyper-competitive market like India. The wide range of affordable smartphones has been the key to Xiaomi’s success. Its upcoming lineup is more interesting, and Xiaomi is expected to carry the No. 1 Smartphone Brand in India crown again in 2019.

Xiaomi’s First Foldable Smartphone Allegedly Leaked, And It’s Mindblowing!

Xiaomi Foldable Phone: All Details

The rumor hints a phone manufactured by Xiaomi, and they are working on a foldable phone. The company is yet to confirm anything. Interestingly the company never mentioned anything about a foldable device in the past, or said they are working on any such technology.

The alleged Xiaomi foldable phone/tablet can be a result of any deep fake editing, according to leakster Evan Blass.

The authenticity is yet to be confirmed, but the video has a perfectly working folding tablet which can be folded from other two sides into a small screen smartphone. The Xiaomi foldable phone on the leaked video looks sleek which has slim bezels.

It can be confirmed in the video that the foldable phone is from Xiaomi by the user interface. The icons on the alleged folding device on video appear to be very similar to Xiaomi’s own MIUI platform.

Xiaomi Folding Phone Has Three Screens

The rumored Xiaomi foldable phone appears very flexible on the video and can be easily folded into three screens. When folded from two sides, it takes up the shape of a smartphone, and a tablet when unfolded. Xiaomi foldable phone can be folded on the left and right sides.

When in an unfolded state, the screen upfront is quite large.

Xiaomi is known to offer premium specifications at affordable prices. Samsung’s Galaxy Fold is rumored to cost over 1.5 lakh in India, so Xiaomi’s foldable phone can be a game changer in the segment. If the news is true, the company can bring a high-end flagship smartphone at an affordable price tag, letting more users enjoy the latest foldable smartphone technology.

Also: Xiaomi Has Started To Work On Its Next Android One Device

Xiaomi now as three Android One smartphones under its product line in association with Google. Starting with Mi A1, it has been a massive success for the company. A few months back the company launched the second generation Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite running on Android One.

Samsung has announced to launch a foldable phone soon. In fact, the South Korean smartphone maker also showcased a prototype design of the foldable phone which could be called Galaxy X. As of now, there’s no report when will the Samsung foldable phone launch, but considering the leaks and rumours flooding the internet, the phone could launch sooner than you can imagine. Following Samsung, other OEMs like Xiaomi are reportedly also working on a foldable phone. A hands-on video of an alleged Xiaomi foldable phone leaked on Thursday night and created a buzz on the internet.

Hands-On Video of Foldable Xiaomi Phone

Although the video was shot inside a dark room and was unclear to revealed details about the alleged foldable phone from Xiaomi, the fact that Xiaomi is coming up with a foldable phone is great. The hands-on video has been leaked by Evan Blass, who’s a pretty popular phone leakster. Blass, however, isn’t very sure about the authenticity of the video. Captioning the video Blass noted, “Can’t speak to the authenticity of this video or device, but it’s allegedly made by Xiaomi, I’m told. Hot new phone, or gadget porn deepfake?”

These three are the only Xiaomi smartphones which don’t run MIUI.

The stock Android under Android One program guarantees 3 years of monthly security updates and 2 years of Android platform updates from Google.

Xiaomi’s Mi A line has been the Mi’s X series rip-offs running on Android One. XDA has discovered an unknown Xiaomi which has the code-name “orchid_sprout” running on the latest Android Pie. The codename _sprout as a suffix in the code-name which has been used for all the Mi A devices.

So, it is still doubtful whether or not the foldable phone showcased in the video is from Xiaomi, but we feel it is considering the interface looks similar to MIUI. The alleged foldable phone appears with three screens and can be used as a phone as well as a tablet, which is great. The hands-on video shows that the device can be folded on the left and right side to be able to use it as a phone, and opening the sides will turn the device into a tablet.

Xiaomi to Take on Samsung in the Foldable Phone Game

The 19-second video shows that foldable phone to be pretty slim, much slimmer than the prototype of the Galaxy X — the foldable phone from Samsung. Additionally, the bezels on the sides of the device are almost invisible, which means that this foldable phone from Xiaomi will offer a great video experience to the users.

The device could be a new Xiaomi Android One device or the Mi A3, which is most likely. Xiaomi is known to start working on the software months before the actual device appears in any certification. The leak hints at the Mi A3 launch within the next quarter both globally and in India.

While the last few days of the year gone by were spent looking back, it’s now time to look what lies ahead. The year 2019 is expected to see new launches, innovations and features in the smartphone industry. What aces do the likes of Apple, Samsung, OnePlus others have up their sleeve?

Top smartphones to launch in 2019

Nokia 9 Pureview with penta-camera setup

Nokia 9 is expected to be the first major smartphone launch of this year. The smartphone was rumored to go official last year, but the launched has been pushed ahead at least a couple of times for some unknown reasons. It seems that HMD Global is skipping the MWC unveil in favor of a dedicated launch for the smartphone. The Nokia 9 will be the first smartphone to jump to as many as five cameras on the back.

Evan Blass tweeted a picture of the device called Nokia 9 Pureview Beholder, which confirms five cameras on the back and dual cameras at the front. The addition of Pureview branding suggests the ZEISS imaging system will be identical to that on the Nokia Lumia lineup. It is expected to feature a 5.99-inch Quad HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio, 6GB of RAM, 128GB storage and Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. This could be a letdown since we will be seeing Snapdragon 855-powered phones next month.

Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+

Samsung Galaxy S-series turns ten this year and the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ are expected to be its biggest design evolution yet. The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ are expected to come in multiple screen sizes including an entry-level model with a flat-screen this year. There are also rumors of a mid model with a 6.2-inch curved display and two more models with a 6.44-inch screen and optional support for 5G.

In terms of design, the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ are expected to feature metal and glass design but at the front, they are expected to feature in-screen dual camera setup. This design will allow for a higher screen-to-body ratio and there are also reports of Samsung adding reverse wireless charging this year. Other features include Snapdragon 855 SoC in the US and China and Exynos 9820 chipset in all other markets. These models are expected to come with up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB storage. With the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, Samsung is also expected to integrate Qualcomm’s ultrasonic fingerprint sensor.

Huawei P30 and P30 Pro

After launching the P20 and P20 Pro at a separate event in March, Huawei is expected to return to MWC this year with the P30 and P30 Pro smartphones. The P30 series is expected to be an improvement over its predecessor by switching to a taller display design that drops the front-mounted fingerprint sensor in favor of an in-display fingerprint sensor. It is also expected to bring major changes in the camera department.

Evan Blass has confirmed that Huawei P30 will offer triple rear camera setup while the P30 Pro is expected to include four camera sensors and support 10x lossless zoom. The leaks claim that Huawei plans to use a 38-megapixel sensor but it is not clear how the four cameras will work. It is expected to feature a waterdrop notch design at the front and come with Kirin 980 chipset, 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage.

Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition

Samsung will start selling foldable smartphones this year but Vivo will start selling smartphone will dual displays. Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition, the latest smartphone with 10GB of RAM and dual display design and a triple rear camera setup will be launched globally this year. The Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition features a 6.39-inch Ultra FullView display with 91.63 percent screen-to-body ratio.

It also features a secondary Super AMOLED display that measures 5.49-inches and is placed on the back of the device. There is 12-megapixel dual pixel main camera paired with a 2-megapixel depth sensor and time-of-flight sensor. There is under display fingerprint sensor, Funtouch OS 4.5 based on Android 9 Pie and 3,500mAh battery.

Sony Xperia XZ4

Sony could jump Samsung and others to become the first to launch the Snapdragon 855-powered smartphone. The Xperia XZ4 recently appeared on Antutu with a score of 3,95,000 and model number I8134. This indicates that the Xperia XZ4 will be the most powerful smartphone when it becomes official next month.

The leaked CAD renders show that it will feature an extra tall display design with 21:9 aspect ratio. It is expected to feature triple rear camera setup and include a headphone jack and dedicated shutter button for the camera.

OnePlus 7

OnePlus 7 and its 5G variant is another smartphone that could disrupt the market this year. The OnePlus 6T has already set a bar for mid-range premium smartphones and its next device will have to deliver on its promise of “Never Settle” attitude. The smartphone recently leaked in the form of an internal meeting attended by Pete Lau.

OnePlus 7 is confirmed to come with Snapdragon 855 but the company is set to launch another model with 5G modem support.
