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— Evan Blass (@evleaks) January 3, 2019
Though Evan Blass didn't state the device type, it appears to run the MIUI Skin part of Xiaomi devices.
Xiaomi has been working with Google on a new device which will help showcase the potential of folding Android devices and maybe this is one of those devices.
Google is being far more hands-on with this new folding version of Android in an attempt to assure apps are property updated to support the functionality along with avoiding fragmentation that often happens in the Android phone world.
