Xiaomi is now laying down the foundation for the launch of the said foldable. Lu Weibing, the President of Xiaomi Group, recently held a poll on its Weibo handle where he asked people to choose from book-style foldable, flip-style foldable, and standard phones.

Sharing the result, Lu stated that their interest in flip phones exceeded his expectations. He also added that flip-style foldables have been “good-looking” but “not easy to use.”
