Xiaomi came up with a folding smartphone with a retractable camera for 5 modules

Xiaomi has filed a patent with CNIPA (China National Intellectual Property Administration)

on a very unusual device. It seems that the Chinese manufacturer has decided to fit all the latest fashion features into one smartphone.

What a monster

So, the sketches show a foldable smartphone that folds with the display facing out, like the Huawei Mate X. Moreover, the left half is much thicker than the right.

For now, this is just a patent, so it is unknown whether Xiaomi will decide to bring such a wild idea to life.

In any case, the company already has many patentsfor folding smartphones, but so far not a single such device is on sale. At the end of January, the head of Xiaomi showed the operation of a folding smartphone on video, but this gadget has not yet entered the market.
