Personally I do not believe in the many patents that appear on the net almost daily, or rather, by heart I do not think there is one that has been successful, that it has actually been developed, yet here I am talking to you about one of the latest projects. Xiaomi.
Project that will certainly pass on the sly in view of the mega launch event of August in which devices such as Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 and Mi Pad 5 should make an appearance in the tech landscape. The patent that I will illustrate to you today, however, could also prove to be a real foundation for what many call the Xiaomi Mi Mix Flip, the second foldable of the Chinese brand that would very much resemble the lines of Samsung Z Flip, bringing back the shell design. .
Xiaomi Mi Mix Flip: here is a new render of the second folding of the Chinese brand
In fact, from what we can see in the images, Xiaomi has registered the patent for a folding smartphone with a closing system that is reminiscent of the cell phones of the past and first re-launched by Motorola with its Razr. This design would benefit the screen, which would therefore be super protected when the device closes halfway.
In spite of the cover image, however, on the body there do not seem to be traces of a secondary display for notifications but there will only be a photographic module with 3 optics while in the display, an elongated punch hole for 2 selfie cameras will be placed.
The on / off buttons and volume rocker remain iconic while the SIM slot seems to be absent, almost precisely to recall what is proposed by Motorola, or a smartphone with the use of e-SIM only. A clue that could suggest that Mi Mix Flip also like Mi MiX 4 (according to rumors) it will have as its commercial scenario the Chinese market only. And what do you think of it?
