Xiaomi Patented a Smartphone With Sliding Screen Mechanism


Xiaomi does not plan to stay with the Mi Mix Alpha smartphone, because the patent images appear on the network for the next phones that will have a sliding screen Mechanism. The Beijing Xiaomi Mobile Software, part of the Xiaomi consortium, applied for a patent at the end of October last year for a device that has several features of smartphones from the Mi Mix product line.

As you can see below, the front of the device is made up of a full display with minimal frames around it. At the same time, there is no cutout or drop in the display that would hide the front selfie camera. However, this does not mean that the device does not have a front camera. The front camera is hidden under the slide-out mechanism, after which the display is moved downwards.

At the same time, it should be noted that the display of the smartphone from the bottom of the device wraps around his chin and ends in about half of his back. Among other things, the rear wall also hides the camera module. Here, however, it should be added that the technology Xiaomi is considering seems to be quite a “big and unnecessary” luxury.

The reason is that although the slide-out mechanism is impressive, it loses its meaning if the device has a display located in the rear wall. In the case of selfie photography, it is possible to use the main camera module and the rear display, which would serve as a viewfinder.

In any case, it is not known today whether Xiaomi will use this patent in a commercially available device. However, with a second breath, it should be added that if this happens, we will probably see this technology in the product line of Mi Mix smartphones.
