On February 9, according to foreign media reports, a design patent for Xiaomi was published in the global design database of WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office). The patent shows a four-curve smartphone with a dual camera on the back.
According to the report, the special feature of this phone is the screen, which is round on all four sides of the screen, as described in the abstract patent specification. In other words, the screen is a curved screen, which is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S series smartphone, but Xiaomi’s mobile phone screen is also a curved screen at the top and bottom.
The curved screen is beautifully symmetrical and has a thickness of half the thickness of the phone body. There are no buttons on the device. Only the USB Type-C connector is visible at the bottom.
The design patent does not specify whether the device is equipped with a self-timed camera. Maybe this will be placed under the screen, just like a fingerprint scanner.
Foreign Media also recently released a Xiaomi smartphone with a two-hole punch camera. Xiaomi acquired Mito phones at the end of last year, and Mito phones are known for self-timer applications. Xiaomi no doubt hopes to use these self-portrait beauty techniques in future Xiaomi smartphones.
However, it is not known when Xiaomi will launch this futuristic Xiaomi smartphone. But given the rapid development of technology in the mobile screen industry, this may be faster than many people think.
