Just a couple of hours ago, Xiaomi confirmed that it had successfully tested 5G data connection on its full screen device. The photo released by the company CEO revealed a full screen smartphone, and we guess that its the same slider phone that was shown off by the company a couple of days back. While we know that this will be a manual slider unlike the one on OPPO Find X or the Vivo Nex, we haven’t seen the slider in action, until now. But a few minutes back, a smartphone running MIUI with a full screen slider design was shared on the Chinese social media platform Weibo, revealing the slider motion in action.
The video reveals a smartphone running MIUI with a slider design and a full screen display. The person holding the phone was kind enough to show us the slider motion in action. The design seems to be quite robust as he wasn’t exactly cautious while sliding the phone up and down. Even the sound makes us believe that the design could be quite tough, which makes sense given that it has to go through our regular smartphone usage, which includes occasional drops and spills. The slider also seems to house multiple sensors including cameras. However, we don’t have any concrete details about the setup.
We guess the phone in the video could be a prototype of the Mix 3 that’s expected to launch sometime later this year. Since Xiaomi officials are no longer shy to reveal details about its upcoming phones, we should get more information about the device in the coming weeks.
