Revealed only by a teaser, the Xiaomi Mi Flex has gained a lot of attention recently. The prototype has been shown on camera by President of Xiaomi Lin Bin already, so it's only a matter of time before the device becomes official. What makes the Mix Flex Unique is that unlike most of the devices that we have seen so far officially or via rumors and leaks, the prototype was shown as a tablet that could be bended on both sides to leave enough room only for a smartphone display. The double folding smartphone can also be called Xiaomi Dual Flex when it finally comes out, as stated by the Lin Bin himself.


Do note that the rumored LG Bendi, the Moto Razr 2019 and the Oppo Foldable Phone were kept out of this list intentionally, as they have not yet been confirmed by their respective manufacturers.
