And if it is, Xiaomi might just have a solid looker here.

Finally, Xiaomi isn't afraid to work on weird "concept" phones as it showed with its bezels Xiaomi Mi Mix phone.

Last year, Samsung gave us a glimpse of its highly anticipated Galaxy F foldable phone.

Samsung showed off the foldable phone prototype in early November, although the phone's design was hidden in a bulky case. Captioning the video Blass noted, "Can't speak to the authenticity of this video or device, but it's allegedly made by Xiaomi, I'm told". The handset, shown in the render above, features a primary display on the inside, as well as a secondary screen on the outside so that you can use the device when it's folded closed.

Samsung wants its folding phone to have a long battery life.

Though it's unclear if this is actually a Xiaomi product, or even if it's anywhere near market-ready, the tablet does seem to function and respond to touch gestures before folding up without seams. The hands-on video has been leaked by Evan Blass, who's a pretty popular phone leakster. "Hot new phone, or gadget porn deepfake?"

The video starts out with Google Maps running in Tablet mode and, on the face of it, behaving as fluidly as is to be expected.

A leaked video of a folding smartphone might be proof that Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has also been working on a foldable phone. The alleged foldable phone appears with three screens and can be used as a phone as well as a tablet, which is great.
