Xiaomi has applied for a patent for a very magical phone with a side slide cover. Sliding left and right gives a completely different effect. It’s pretty fancy.
From the patent drawing, the front and back of the phone are screens, which is near the front of the full screen without the frame, we can not see bangs, water drops, digging holes and other popular design, and the back is also a screen, but the frame is large, there is no camera before and after.
The front of the device slides to the left, revealing a hidden camera on the right side. Swiping to the right brings up a small, long screen, the third screen.
Foreign media also made a rendering of this, showing the right scroll unfold, but it is not clear what this hidden third screen is for.
Before that, Xiaomi had applied for a number of special phone designs, all of which were full-screen, including the longitudinal sliding flexible screen, the front and back flipping camera, and the inside flipping camera.
They may stay on the drawing board forever, or they may come out one day with a bang, like the Mi Mix, which pioneered the overall screen trend, like the conceptual Mi Mix Alpha.
