After years of waiting, it has not finally been confirmed that the Samsung foldable smartphone (Samsung Galaxy F) will launch at the MWC next month. Along with Samsung even Huawei will be launching a foldable device at the event. However, these are not the only companies working on this new trend. Even smartphone company Xiaomi is working on a foldable smartphone. The Xiaomi foldable smartphone will make its debut in November during the Developer Conference. Recently, it was also confirmed that Xiaomi is working on a five camera smartphone (Penta-Lens).
Xiaomi Foldable Smartphone
Talking about the foldable smartphone, Xiaomi has designed a device that is already deemed better than Samsung’s. Based on the video that was released a couple of days back, Xiaomi’s foldable smartphone comes with a double folding display. The video revealed that both sides of the phone can be folded backwards to change the tablet form to a compact smartphone. This concept by far is the most practical one that we have seen on these foldable devices.

Additionally, as of now, the company has not named the Xiaomi foldable smartphone. The Co-Founder & President of the company, Lin Bin has asked fans for suggestions via Twitter. However, some sources have deemed that the smartphone could be named Xiaomi Mi Dual Flex or Xiaomi Mi MIX Flex. Recently, a report on DigiTimes cited that the AMOLED display on the Xiaomi foldable smartphone has been supplied by Visionox.
Xiaomi Penta-Lens Smartphone
From a single lens camera, we advanced to dual camera mobile phones. However, in 2018 we also saw the rise of the triple camera and quadruple camera smartphones. But, that’s not all. For quite some time we have known that Nokia is working on five camera smartphone called the Nokia 9 PureView. If recent leaks are to be believed, it looks like Nokia is not the only company working on a Penta-lens camera. Even Xiaomi is working on a smartphone with five cameras. Xiaomi mobile phones in 2019 sure look interesting.
This information was revealed by Wang Teng Thomas, the company director. He posted an image on Weibo with the watermark ‘shot on Mi AI Penta Cam’. Other than this, no other detail or image of this Penta-camera smartphone has been revealed. However, the image captured from the five camera does look very sharp and neat. Guess, we will have to wait to get further details on this upcoming Xiaomi smartphone.
