Xiaomi regularly proves to us that there are no limits for them. With their technological pieces, they move the world of technology forward. Xiaomi has recently patented an interesting smartphone.
This is unique in that it has a sliding mechanism that is built into the flexible display of the smartphone. The display is located almost around the entire body of the smartphone. This is a really unusual piece.
The slide-out drive is nothing new in the world of smartphones. Great, for example Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 has a retractable mechanism that reveals its front camera, making it fully frameless display. This technology can be defined in layman's terms as two smartphone bodies that are connected.
Flexible U-shaped display
However, the new patent from the Xiaomi workshop talks about flexible displaywhich covers most of the body of the smartphone. Specifically the whole front part a three quarters of the back parts of a smartphone. The display wraps around the body of the smartphone from the bottom, creating the shape of the letter "U".
The mechanism slides out directly from the flexible display of the smartphone. So we are talking about one piece and not two parts, as is usual.
The first information about this unique device was brought by the community WindowsUnited. You can also find the patent in the company's global patent database incoPat.
How does it work ?
By moving the flexible display down sa reveal front sensors and cameras. The back of the display scrolls again up. The display is therefore the only part of the smartphone that moves.
He owes his own flexibility and the fact that it covers the front and part of the back of the smartphone. This makes this device exceptional and differs from commonly available smartphones with a slide-out mechanism.
Nothing is confirmed
However, no more detailed or official information about this interesting piece is available. There is also no information as to whether Xiaomi is actually working on this device.
So we have to wait to see if any official information will be born in time. In any case, it is a truly unique technological piece that has no parallel in the world of technology.
