From black and mobiles to the smartphones, mobile phones have seen a drastic change over the years. Taking a step further, Chinese tech giant Xiaomi has recently unveiled a foldable smartphone with three screen sections.
Dubbed as ‘Chinese Apple’, this smartphone transforms into a tablet by folding out two parts of its display bent behind its back. However, Xiaomi co-founder and president Lin Bin said that the device hasn’t been named yet and it is open to suggestions from the public.
Lin Bin said in his Weibo post: ‘After conquering a series of technical problems such as flexible folding screen technology, flexible cover technology, and MIUI adaptation, we have produced the first folding screen mobile phone.
‘It should be the world’s first double folding mobile phone.
‘This symmetrical double-folded form perfectly combines the user experience of the tablet and mobile phone, making it both practical and attractive.
‘Although this phone is an engineering model, I’d like to show it to everyone.
‘Welcoming everyone to forward / comment / like. If everyone likes it, we will consider mass producing the phone in the future.
‘Also, we’d like to name this engineering model. What should we name it? I thought of two: Xiaomi Dual Flex, Xiaomi MIX Flex. Welcome suggestions!’
