Xiaomi plans to produce a modular smartphone, or interchangeable pieces. A solution used by Fairphone, but with other purposes

<strong>The Eurobursar</strong> LetsGoDigital brings us this unusual patent which was presented at the WIPO in February 2020 and accepted only at the end of April 2021.

The first module (upper part) contains the motherboard and camera system, in the second module (central part) the battery. In addition, a third module is used, which forms the lower part of the smartphone, probably with the speakers for music. The modules are easily interchangeable and can contain additional functions

Two different types of camera modules are shown and described. The first is a square-shaped camera system, consisting of a triple camera with flash, to the Redmi Note 9. The second instead shows a vertical traffic light, much more classic, consisting of 4 sensors and an LED flash.

As for the front cameras, the smartphone does not consist of any sensor and therefore it is assumed that it has one camera under the display. However, as these modules are interchangeable, it is not excluded that it can “Rotate” them to make the cameras fall into the front instead of posterior. In this way the brand would have the possibility to insert less hardware.

Extra variant

Considering that these are patents, Concept Creator has created a third module to his liking. Taking up the design of Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, proposed a module that features both cameras and a second screen.
