We already know that Samsung is working on a foldable phone, and the rumor mill recently suggested that LG has one in the works, too. Now a new leak has suggested that another Android phone maker has a foldable phone in the works.
A brief video claims to show a foldable Android phone made by Xiaomi. In the video, shared by Evan Blass, we can see the user unlocked the phone, launch Google Maps, and pan around a bit before folding in the two sides. The app then shrinks to fit on the middle portion before the user returns to the home screen and flicks around a bit.
Can't speak to the authenticity of this video or device, but it's allegedly made by Xiaomi, I'm told. Hot new phone, or gadget porn deepfake? pic.twitter.com/qwFogWiE2F

There's not much else known about this device right now, and Blass even cautions that he can't confirm the authenticity of the clip. Still, it's a pretty interesting clip. The device appears to work well, with the software responding quickly to the sides of the phone being folded in. That said, we don't really know anything about this device, its specs, its performance, or even if its real, so we should probably try to temper our excitement a bit until more details come out.
What do you think of this alleged Xiaomi foldable phone? If it's the real deal, would you carry it around as your daily driver?
