Previously, the company is known for its home appliances as well including Mi Air Purifier, Mi Box, Mi Drone and much more, besides smartphones. In an attempt to confirm this, a couple of photos and a video has been leaked on the Internet.
As per the latest video leak, the user is allegedly holding a bent smartphone in his palm that seems to be running on Xiaomi's MIUI skin.
The 35 seconds video apparently shows the display performing different functions from swiping top to bottom to playing games as well. This display can be bent backward/forward and left/right.

At present, the manufacturing cost of bendable display's is too costly, when compared to the flat display. Meanwhile, there are other options to consider including breakage, the life span of the display and much more. Another reason, on why it is not commercially available is due to the lack of bendable battery.
Further, Lei Jun's company Xiaomi is also working on Mi Note 2 that is expected to come with the bezel-less display as well. If the information circulating around the Internet is true, then the Mi Note 2 will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC, 6GB RAM under the board.
Moreover, the so-called Mi Note 2 is expected to come in three variants -- 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB inbuilt storage as well.
Also, the alleged Mi Note 2 is expected to carry dual camera setup with 16MP each, 5MP front snapper, Android 7.0 Nougat on top of MIUI 9. On the connectivity front, it could come with dual-SIM card slots, 4G with VoLTE HD voice calling support, USB Type-C for charging and data transfer, Bluetooth, NFC, and Wi-Fi 802.11ac.
However, contrary to the company's tradition, this smartphone is expected to carry a hefty price tag around 4000 Yuan (approx Rs. 40,000).
