Xiaomi has accustomed its fans to launch bold and innovative smartphones in the Mi MIX line. At a time when the Mi MIX 4 is slow to appear on the market, there is now a new Xiaomi patent for a flexible screen smartphone.
This secret kept until now, it is a patent published by Xiaomi October 29, 2020. Like the Mi MIX 3, it has a flexible screen to show the front camera. The big difference is that most of the smartphone’s back also has a screen.
Xiaomi has registered new patent smartphone with extendable screen
Thanks to the LetsGoDigital website and graphic designer Sarang Sheth, the patent was designed in several renderings that put Xiaomi’s idea into practice. In the image below you can see the smartphone in its compacted version, and the one in which the front cameras (hidden under the screen) are visible when the panel is slid.
As indicated by the patent, the screen can be extended by touch. The big news is that this mechanism can also be activated using voice commands.
As you can see in the renderings, most of this prototype has a screen at the rear. However, enough space is left to cover a very complete camera system.
It ends up looking redundant to include front cameras under the screen, since there is a screen at the rear. With this, it would be easily possible to take selfies with the greatest of qualities, or make video calls.
Remember that the Mi Mix 3 also had a sliding screen, albeit with a different magnetic mechanism. With no apparent sign of the Mi MIX 4 on the market, this patent brings hope to a new model in the near future.
As with any patent, you should note that these are prototypes that are only on paper. LetsGoDigital’s renderings are just the form of a Xiaomi idea.
