The prolific leaker, Evan Blass earlier this week has brought forward a rather curious video that briefly showed an unknown foldable smartphone in action. Not to mention that Samsung's biggest rivals, including Apple, Microsoft, Huawei, LG, and a variety of other China-based OEMs are all working on foldable handsets of their own.

Samsung has announced to launch a foldable phone soon.

For one, isn't the first we've seen of a Xiaomi foldable phone. ET Times reported in July last year that Xiaomi was ordering components for a foldable phone for this year. It wouldn't come as a surprise if the model in the video is authentic and Xiaomi-branded.

Blass admits to being unsure whether or not this is genuinely a Xiaomi device if the product turns out to be real.

So, it is still doubtful whether or not the foldable phone showcased in the video is from Xiaomi, but we feel it is considering the interface looks similar to MIUI. After the tablet has been folded in the leaked video, it looks like a phone with a wide display. The alleged foldable phone appears with three screens and can be used as a phone as well as a tablet, which is great.

The duration of the video might be quite short at just 20 seconds, but it still showed plenty of things.

2019, like it or not, is going to be a year of foldable phones, phablets, or whatever we end up calling these devices.
