Xiaomi filed a patent with CNIPA (China National Intellectual Property Office)
What a monster
So, the sketches show a folding smartphone, which folds out with the display out, like the Huawei Mate X. In this case, the left half is much thicker than the right.
To achieve framelessness, here is usedretractable camera. But this Xiaomi was not enough: the camera immediately received 5 (!) Modules. She is here alone, so it is used as both the main and the front camera.
While this is just a patent, it is not known whether Xiaomi will decide to bring such a wild idea to life.
In any case, the company already has many patents forfolding smartphones, but so far no such devices are on sale. In late January, the head of Xiaomi showed the work of a folding smartphone on video, but so far this gadget has not entered the market.</ p>
