Possible Xiaomi-branded foldable tablet revealed in hands-on video
Running a version of Xiaomi’s MIUI 10 custom overlay, the first half of the 20-second clip shows the unknown user handling the device just like a traditional tablet. After initially unlocking the device, the person proceeds to open the Google Maps app. This functions just as expected but quickly adapts to the new form factor when the user begins folding the device.
In this particular case, the display can be folded from both the left and right sides. This means that, when both portions are no longer in use, what is left resembles a wide, smartphone-like device complete with curved edges on either side.
Evan Blass himself warned that he has no way of verifying the authenticity of the device or the video shown. However, speaking to PhoneArena exclusively, Ishan Agarwal revealed that he had previously received an email about this particular device. For those unaware, Agarwal is responsible for leaking a number of previous devices such as the recently-announced OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition.
As customary, it’s still worth taking this leak with a pinch of salt. But that fact that two reputable leakers have both obtained information about the device suggests that there could be some legitimacy to the leak.
