Xiaomi rumored to be working on a triple-fold phone

Xiaomi may also have a foldable phone in the works

On Thursday Xiaomi announced that Redmi is now a separate brand.

It seems that Samsung isn't the only manufacture designing and building its own foldable phone, with a leak coming from Even Bass showing a short video of a what is possibly Xiaomi-made foldable phone. 2018 was good for Xiaomi, but it looks like the company is planning to make 2019 a better one.

Samsung wants its folding phone to have a long battery life.

What we can see in the video is a device that has a large screen and folds in two places.

Last year, Samsung gave us a glimpse of its highly anticipated Galaxy F foldable phone.

Samsung's first foldable phone will burn a hole in your wallet if reports of its price prove accurate. If it is, it's just further confirmation that folding designs are becoming trendy within phone manufacturers' designs despite such a concept having barely reached the public enough to analyze audience interest.

But is it a real product, or is it a "gadget porn deepfake" as Blass noted in his tweet? The hands-on video has been leaked by Evan Blass, who's a pretty popular phone leakster.

The video starts out with Google Maps running in Tablet mode and, on the face of it, behaving as fluidly as is to be expected.

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. The company has been rumoured to be working on a foldable device in the past, and this is the first time we are getting a first look at the potential Xiaomi foldable phone.
