Today, some sources reported Xiaomi had submitted a patent for folding smartphone design to the European Union Intellectual Property Office. The look of the Xiaomi folding screen smartphone in the patent photos is basically the same as that previously showed by Xiaomi co-founder and Xiaomi President Lin Bin.

In fact, we know the Xiaomi double folding smartphone overcomes a series of technical problems such as flexible folding screen technology, four-wheel-drive folding shaft technology, flexible cover technology, and MIUI adaptation. This is the first Xiaomi folding screen smartphone as well as the first in its time on the globe. So if Xiaomi can solve the abovementioned problems, it can outrun Samsung, Huawei, and other top brands that are going to release a folding screen smartphone.
Also, Lin Bin emphasized that this symmetrical double-folded form perfectly combines the experience of the tablet and smartphone. Plus, it is both practical and beautiful.
Unfortunately, there is no relevant information. We only can see the sketches of the Xiaomi double-folding smartphone. At present, in addition to the FlexPai foldable smartphone designed by Rouyu Technology, Samsung Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate X and other foldable smartphones, we have not heard about other models to go to the mass production.
As a new form of a smartphone, the foldable phone is still in the exploration stage. We mean besides the technical difficulties the manufacturers are facing now, users should adapt to this form factor. We should change understand the era of current smartphones is running out. Of course, we can’t say the folding screen smartphones are the future of this industry, but changes are coming.
