With the development of smart phones in recent two years, folding screen mobile phones are regarded as the development direction of smart phones in the future.
At present, Huawei and Samsung have launched folding screen mobile phones, while Xiaomi has shown a double folding screen engineering machine, but Xiaomi has not yet launched a folding screen mobile phone.
Now according to foreign media letsgodigital, Xiaomi has applied for a new folding screen mobile phone patent. The new patent shows that Xiaomi's folding screen mobile phone design has many similarities with Huawei mate XS.
According to the report, Beijing Xiaomi Mobile Software Co., Ltd. applied for a design patent from China Intellectual Property Office (cnipa) at the end of 2019.
The patent was issued on June 5, 2020, and contains 19 product pictures showing the previously invisible Xiaomi foldable mobile phone.
The patent shows that Xiaomi smartphone has a bendable display screen, which is located in the external folding position (unfolding).
The size of the folded device is similar to that of a normal smart phone, and you will have a large display after deployment.
The folding screen of the mobile phone is almost a full screen when it is unfolded, and only a very narrow screen edge can be seen on the right side, the screen on the back is slightly narrower because it has four camera vertical bars.
It contains four camera lenses and a flash, and a mobile phone switch button and volume button are nearby.
Xiaomi has been silent on folding screen phones recently, but the report said,Xiaomi is expected to launch its first folding screen mobile phone in the second half of this year,But there's a lot of uncertainty about the form of folding.
Last month, letsgodigital also reported Xiaomi's foldable smartphone, but it's a flip design similar to Samsung Galaxy Z flip, so it's not clear which one Xiaomi will release in the end.
