Currently, smartphones are going through the change of design phase and the ultimate goal of all this is to achieve the bezel and notch less full-screen display. As per the recent reports, Xioami has taken a step ahead regarding this achievement. It looks like Xiaomi may be planning on making a smartphone screen with four curved sides screen.
According to a report by letsgodigital.org, the Chinese company has applied for a patent for the design with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO). Judging by the image shared on the website, there doesn’t seem to be any front facing camera with this design. So, either Xiaomi plans to add system such as a pop-up camera, or maybe even ditch the camera entirely. Other notable features showing in the image include a USB Type-C port at the bottom and a dual-rear camera setup at the back.
Curved screen on smartphone is not the new concept as we have seen this design from Samsung, Nokia and More in its flagship smartphones for quite a while now. However, those displays only curve on two sides, not all four, Xiaomi with this patent expected to launch the four curved sides screen Smartphone. As such, it should offer a nearly complete full screen display experience. However, just because Xiaomi has applied for a patent, doesn’t guarantee that the company will manufacture the same. So, for now, we just have to wait and see if this will become a reality.
Xiaomi may also be working on a folding smartphone of its own. Last month, the company’s co-founder, Lin Bin posted a video that showcased a foldable smartphone. However, the phone does not fold in half. Rather, it folds backward along two bends. Of course, Xiaomi isn’t alone in its quest for a foldable smartphone. Samsung and Huawei are expected to unveil foldable devices at MWC 2019, while
