No doubt the next technology that will capture the phones will be the ability to fold the screen. First, Royole Corporation introduced Royole FlexPai, then Samsung announced the Galaxy F and Infinity Flex Display. The last added to this list is the Xiaomi phone. The company announced its phone and is now stepping in front of the competition. Of course, we will have to wait and see the final versions of the phones, not their announcements.
Unlike competitors who fold in half, Xiaomi's phone folds into three parts. The middle part, which acts as the main screen of the phone, is twice as wide as the two sides bending under it. So far, there are not too many data that we can not spot on the video. What may possibly "escape" is that the phone is with MIUI Android, which should probably be a confirmation that Xiaomi has managed to adjust its operating system version and on flexible screens.
What is important to point out in this situation is that the company did not confirm the mass production of the phone. A spokeswoman for Xiaomi told TechCrunch that they are expecting reactions and feedback from users for now. If there is interest, they will consider the possibility of starting mass production of the phone with a flexible screen. Users can engage in a discussion at Weibo. However, discussions here are in Chinese and there is not much room for anyone who does not speak the language.
In addition to these three companies, Xiaomi, Samsung and Royole are also announced for flexible devices from both Huawei and Lenovo. With this, Apple is the only company in the top 5 manufacturers who have not announced a bold phone.
