Xiaomi Working On A Smartphone With A Quad-Edge Display
Xiaomi has been very successful lately. Its philosophy of giving great specs at an affordable price has resonated with the audience. But it is not really known to innovate, but rather is seen as a follower in technologies. But lately, Xiaomi is trying to catch up with some unique ideas of its own. Be it the Mi MIX 3’s manual slider and also the 48MP camera in the budget Redmi Note 7, Xiaomi is trying to differentiate itself. Patents filed by Xiaomi for a smartphone with a Quad-Edge display have been found.
The patent was filed on February 5, at the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO). The patent shows a full screen smartphone with a dual camera on the back. The idea of edge screens was started by Samsung with its Note Edge. Today, the Galaxy S and the Note series is available with a Dual edge display.
This patent shows a Quad-edge display, meaning display curved on all sides. This could mean that Xiaomi is working on a smartphone with this feature and also has figured out the technology.
Xiaomi Smartphone With A Quad-Edge Display
The patent images filed by Xiaomi show an all screen smartphone, without any buttons and just a Type-C port. There is no headphone jack, speaker or even an earpiece in sight. The smartphone could also be using the technology used in Meizu Zero or the Vivo Apex 2. The phone shows a dual camera at the back and no camera or fingerprint sensor in sight at the front. The fingerprint sensor can be embedded in the display. About the selfie camera, maybe Xiaomi has figured out how to put one inside the screen.
This patent looks great and if Xiaomi releases a smartphone like this one before anyone else, they would blow everyone’s mind. Xiaomi just needs to keep the price tag right.
