The U-Notch display Smartphone design came mainstream in 2018. To avoid visual fatigue, several leading brands tried this design. Before IFA Berlin, Huawei announced its Honor Magic 2, a revolutionary slide-screen phone. After that, Xiaomi, also a Chinese brand, introduced her Mix 3 in the same design. How exciting.
It is noteworthy, however, that the “Slide Screen” concept was already presented by DOOGEE with the Mix 4 in January 2018? So that should be the original idea of DOOGEE! So, do the Honor Magic 2 and Xiaomi Mix 3 just happen to have the same design, or are they conceptual plagiarism? According to DOOGEE, Huawei and Xiaomi could be sued for copyright infringement.
Doogee Mix 4 Prototype Unboxing Video
DOOGEE Mix 4 Slide Screen Phone, almost 100% aspect ratio
Back in January, DOOGEE released its concept slide-screen smartphone, a 5.99-inch Mix-4 model. This idea caused quite a stir back then and could be found in the mass media. In April, an unboxing video appeared on YouTube showing the details. The DOOGEE Mix 4 has an almost 100% screen-to-body ratio with advanced in-display fingerprint unlocking technology. While the main feature is the design of the front camera.
The Mix 4 consists of upper and lower part. DOOGEE magically inserts the front camera into the lower part, while the upper part can be moved like a sled to ensure a 100% screen. The user only has to push down the upper housing layer to create the frontal self-recording camera. That’s the real full-screen era,
From a time perspective, DOOGEE has published this great idea over other brands. As a result, Doogee claims that Huawei and Xiaomi are under suspicion of design plagiarism. In any case, this revolutionary slide-screen technology can give users a whole new, different experience. So we are excited about mass production and the official start.
