For some months now, we know that Xiaomi is one of the brands that works on the creation of a folding smartphone, and like Samsung, Huawei and other companies, the giant based in Beijing would have the spotlight placed on the year 2019 that has just started, as the key year for the landing of its first flexible terminal.
Although so far we had no indication of the early arrival of a folding device signed by Xiaomi, today a video published by the renowned “filtering” EvLeaks, has sounded all the alarms to unveil what appears to be a tablet with MIUI in its inside, able to fold and transform into a smartphone of conventional size.
As you can see in the short video shared by Evan Blass, the device has a screen whose size would correspond to a tablet near 8 or 10 inches. However, when folding the screen, it becomes a device of smaller size and similar to that of a current smartphone, in addition to seeing how the system interface -MIUI, in this case- automatically adapts to changes made by the user , as indicated by the native Android Continuity API, which has allowed Google to introduce official support for this type of device in the operating system.
Perhaps the most striking detail of this video is that the terminal seems to be fully functional, and the user is able to interact with the interface, including the possibility of opening applications or moving around different parts of the operating system. In addition, everything seems to work without too many problems and in a fluid way.
The own Evan Blass assures that he has not been able to contrast the veracity of this information, and therefore it is unknown if what we see today is Xiaomi’s first folding smartphone, or a carefully made fake and where he has taken care of himself. more minimum detail. If it is real, it is very likely that we will continue to discover new details about the device in the coming weeks.
