Xiaomi working on Foldable Phone

The Motorola razr 2019 foldable fone is currently the talk of the town in the smartphone world. After months of hype surrounding the device, Motorola made it official last week. The Motorola razr 2019 has a sleek design but specifications that are quite underwhelming.

We recently reported that the razr may be rivaled by Samsung and Huawei. However, it appears that Xiaomi may also be in this competition. New reports suggest that Xiaomi is also working on a device with the clamshell design.

Xiaomi has gotten a patent for a vertical clamshell folding phone with two front cameras. Popular leaksters Tiger Mobiles revealed this while providing a look at the device. According to Tiger Mobiles, Xiaomi’s clamshell foldable phone will come with two front-facing cameras.

It appears that Xiaomi’s design also has a hinge in the centre-back of the screen. This is similar to what we see in the Motorola razr. There is also what looks like a dual-camera setup on the rear. When unfolded, the device has a top bezel that houses what appears to be a dual front camera setup.

Earlier this year, Xiaomi teased a phone that folded twice. The device transitioned from a tablet into a smartphone with a wraparound screen. So, this is not the first time we are seeing a Xiaomi folding phone concept.

Only time will tell if Xiaomi will release either phone. But the concepts definitely show that the Motorola razr may be in for some serious competition.
