Phone News: Xiaomis foldable phone was spotted publicly and its got an enormous problem


Creasey does it

It's a busy season for cool rollable and foldable phones immediately, as CES 2021 has given us closer looks at previously-teased rollable from TCL and LG, which is why we got excited at the news that a Xiaomi foldable phone was spotted publicly. However, after seeing the phone, we're not so sure about it.

These images come from a user of Chinese social media platform Weibo, taken of somebody employing a Xiaomi foldable phone during a subway car. you'll tell it is a Xiaomi phone because it's clearly running MIUI, Xiaomi's Android overlay. the pictures have since been taken down, but MyFixGuide managed to save lots of them first.

In the pictures, we will see someone employing a book-style foldable, just like the Samsung Galaxy Fold, and clearly, a special thing to the foldable Xiaomi previously teased, which had two hinges. Unfortunately, this new design features a big problem.

It must be de-creased

A big metric for judging foldable phones is how apparent the crease, where the device folds, is on the screen. If it's extremely obvious and stands proud from the display, it is often an impediment to using the handset, and that we found this for several early foldable.


This Xiaomi foldable phone features a crease you'll probably see from the moon - it's huge, looking sort of a vortex that might drag your finger into it when your digits stray near. we will not imagine the display is fun to use thereupon thing ripping through it.

We can't use this foldable phone to form sweeping statements about Xiaomi's future ones though, as it's likely just a prototype or test model intended to experiment with a particular design. 

We've got no idea of when Xiaomi will officially launch its first foldable phone, but since 2021 is looking like 'the year of foldable phones', hopefully, it'll come soon.
