Xiaomi Mi 9T Rear casing focused on logo and carbon texture

  • An outward-folding Xiaomi foldable phone prototype has surfaced online.
  • The device bears a resemblance to the Huawei Mate X series.

With the exception of the Huawei Mate X series and the Royole FlexPai family, the vast majority of foldable phones are inward-folding devices. Xiaomi’s two foldables are also inward-folding affairs, but a new leak has given us a look at an intriguing prototype.

Tipster Kuba Wojciechowski has posted photos of a prototype Xiaomi foldable phone on Twitter, showing an outward folding design. This makes for quite the change from the company’s Mi Mix Fold and Mix Fold 2 handsets. Check out the images below.
