Early this year, popular tipster Evan Blass leaked a video of the latest Xiaomi foldable phone. After that video leaked, Xiaomi’s president Lin Bin shared a hands-on video of the Xaiomi’s foldable phone. The special feature of this phone is that it can fold both ways, unlike other foldable phones we’ve seen from others. Although the company hasn’t announced any official name for the device, Lin Bin said he has thought of names like Dual Flex and Mix Flex. As far as I am concerned, Dual Flex sounds a whole lot better because it defines what the phone can do – fold both ways.

Xiaomi’s president has also asked his Weibo followers to suggest a good name for the device. The Xiaomi Dual flex has a foldable 7.3-inch display which can be opened like a book. The company has said that this device will be the world’s first double folding mobile phone.. However, I think they’re right though. As shown in the video, the smartphone can be folded both left and right. This also proves that Chinese smartphone makers are the king of innovative technology right now. At least in the phone industry.
Xiaomi says that they have overcome a lot of difficulties to produce this smartphone. Some of the major technical difficulties it overcame include flexible folding screen technology, four-wheel drive folding shaft technology, flexible cover technology, MIUI system adaptation and so on.
This new technology allows the smartphone to be used as a tablet and also a smartphone. However, we have no real information about the specs of the Dual Flex. Rumors suggest that the device features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and 8 GB of RAM. The company has confirmed that it will be present at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 tech expo on Feb. 24. There’s every reason to believe that it will be unveiling this device at this event.
