Now, a new video from Evleaks hints that Chinese telecommunications company, Xiaomi, may also be just about ready to release its own foldable device this year. However, if it is in fact a legitimate device it's possible that it'll make an appearance at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next week. Even if it is fake, that is still a rather elaborate piece of work.

Foldable phones and tablets are expected to be huge in 2019, with Samsung reported to be launching its Samsung Galaxy Flex in the first half of the year. On the software side, the device appears to be running Android, with the OS looking a lot like MIUI.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 318.89 points, or 1.37 per cent, shortly after the open to 23,027.35. Apple's warning on China has the potential to weigh heavily on a wide variety of companies.

But here's the catch: the leaker, Evan Blass, says he is unsure of the authenticity of the video above, supposedly showing off the new foldable device made by Xiaomi. The leaked video has been shot in a very dark room, and doesn't reveal any details about the device's looks apart from the screen and the folding mechanism.
