Recently, many smartphone manufacturers have relied on ODMs to design and manufacture their products. Famous brands such as Lenovo, Samsung, OPPO often cooperate with ODM. Most recently, Wingtech, the largest ODM in the smartphone industry and other IoT products, has just been patented a new device, possibly an upcoming smartphone from Xiaomi.
Wingtech is a well-known ODM that designs and manufactures smartphones, smartwatches, tablets, … Chinese brands such as Huawei and Xiaomi are also one of its familiar customers. So, if the device in this patent is made for Xiaomi it wouldn’t be too surprising.
As reported, the patent appeared both in the database of the National Intellectual Property Office of China and the World Intellectual Property Office (World Intellectual Property Office, WIPO). It is believed that if the project were to materialize, it would go into production at the Wingtech factory.
The terminal design has sharp, straight corners. Its screen contains three reduced edges, but one of its sides is a continuation of that display towards the other side of the gadget itself.
Let’s say that, in a way, you have an inspiration from the Mi Mix Alpha. In other words, the panel is not exactly 360 °, although it has its appeal as it is called. It constitutes a kind of wraparound screen. The emerging camera has three photographic sensors and an LED flash.
Given the concept it represents, it could be used for both selfies and a rear camera; It would be enough to turn the phone over and we would see what the sensors on the other side of the screen focus on. The on/off button is on the bottom panel, where the SIM card slot, a USB Type-C connector, and a speaker are also located.
According to the report, Xiaomi has more than 70% of its design through ODM companies. Furthermore, Wingtech and Xiaomi have a long history of cooperation. However, at present, it is still in the form of a patent, but whether this smartphone will become a reality is still a mystery.
