There is no word from Xiaomi about the authenticity of the video. Other bring brands like Samsung and LG are going to launch a foldable phone this year. The nineteen second video shows that the device can be used as both tablet and as a smartphone. Overall the device looks cool with slim bezzels all over the sides. There are high chances of the device being Xiaomi because the icons are pretty the same of MIUI.
The alleged foldable phone appears to be flexible enough and is divided into 3 different screens for using as a tablet and also as a smartphone. The video shows that the device can be foldable in both the sides i.e right and left. On closing the sides, the device can be used a smartphone and while opening the sides the device can be used as a tablet. The screen on the front of the device looks big in the video. Apparently this will change the brand image of Xiaomi.
Xiaomi has huge plans in 2019 like splitting Redmi as a sub brand and concentrating on Mi series of phones. The brand has announced that they will launch a new Redmi device on January 10 in China. It could be either Redmi 2 Pro or Redmi 7. Xiaomi has now three sub brands i.e Mi, Redmi and Poco. The company splitted Redmi from Mi because to increase the revenue coming from Mi series of phones. Xiaomi is also working on several phones like Redmi 7, Redmi 7A, Redmi 7 Pro, Mi A3 (Android One), Mi Mix 4, Mi 9 and others.
