The UI on the device keeps adapting when it is folded and switches automatically from tablet UI to phone UI after folding and the bottom bar gets narrower.

What is also interesting is the manner the device transforms into the tablet from a phone, with there being two bends each along the sides of the phone to extend the display further sideways.

The leaked video does not offer any substantial proof that the device is actually Xiaomi's foldable phone.

Next thing is that the device is folded from the left-hand side, turning it into a smartphone with curved edges on both sides. However, as the video is shot in darkness, it's impossible to see what the device looks like.

Well, looks like it's going to be a tough competition. The firstly unknown handset was later named as Galaxy F. Now, one of the top rivals of the company is also possibly coming up with the concept of another foldable sensation.

Samsung's first foldable phone will burn a hole in your wallet if reports of its price prove accurate. The Mi Mix 3, with its sliding screen, is a testament to this.

We expect this phone to feature a 7-inch or 8-inch AMOLED screen with QHD+ resolution, and when folded, it could have a 5-inch or a 5.5-inch screen. Contrastingly, Xiaomi the Poco F1 has a dual rear camera setup at the centre of the upper half of the back panel. However, Evan himself said that the authenticity of the video was in question.

Given the icons on show it's believed that this is indeed a Xiaomi device, running a build of Android 9. If we assume that this philosophy is not changing, this device leaked here might be the most affordable foldable smartphone you will be able to buy in 2019.
