At the end of last week we showed you images of a new flexible display that Xiaomi integrated into a concept phone. We now have a video that briefly shows how the display is operated even though it is bent right in the middle. While still a concept phone and not a finished product, the video does seem to suggest that Xiaomi has come quite a long way. We do know from Lenovo and Samsung, both of which showed new phone concepts using flexible displays this year, that the display itself may not be the hardest part about it. A flexible phone also needs flexible batteries and flexible silicon, both of which may be harder to achieve than flexible displays. So don't expect Xiaomi to ship this anytime soon.

As a young tech enthusiast with a history involving assembling and overclocking projects, I ended up working as a projectionist with good old 35-mm films before I entered the computer world at a professional level. I assisted customers at an Austrian IT service provider called Iphos IT Solutions for seven years, working as a Windows client and server administrator as well as a project manager. As a freelancer who travels a lot, I have been able to write for Notebookcheck from all corners of the world since 2016. My articles cover brand-new mobile technologies in smartphones, laptops, and gadgets of all kinds.
