Chinese phone maker Xiaomi has released a couple of foldable phones in the past few years. But the company has been showing off prototypes for even longer… including for some models that never make it to market.

A few years ago Xiaomi filed for a patent on a foldable that bends outward rather than inward, allowing the screen to effectively wrap around the phone.
