Back in 2019, Xiaomi had announced the Mi MIX Alpha. The product in question is a concept cameraphone, which meant that it arrived with new and experimental designs and options and would not be sold commercially. Regrettably, a new patent has just surfaced that seems as additional version of the exact gadget, meaning it may be a version made specially for mass work.
One of the most notable feature of the Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha was its flexible OLED screen. This was special thanks to the fact that the screen covered a majority of the smartphone’s body. In other words, it wrapped about the front and back of the gadget, providing a 180.6 percent screen to body ratio (a never prior achieve ratio). Currently, a new patent has surfaced that details a Xiaomi telephone that moreover has a curved panel, while not as bold as the last and still leaves much more area for the rear screen to be placed.
This will not only allow for much better durability however moreover prevent unnecessary scratches although laying the telephone flat on its back. Like per the images that accompany the patent, the supposed commercial variant of the Mi MIX Alpha features a exact curved display, but the rear screen is much more prominent than before and will be made of plain glass. In addition, the Xiaomi patent moreover displays a dual digital camera setup on the rear along an LED flash.
Xiaomi maybe made the move to a more practical design like the protection of a full screen telephone is still questionable by the technology standards of today. Smartphones like Mi MIX Alpha follow futuristic designs and aesthetics but are not best for everyday use. Hence, the shift appears plausible like this will allow the gadget to be much more commercially viable like well.
The Mi MIX Alpha was reported back in September 2019 and has yet to go on sale. Xiaomi did plan on selling a limited number of units however that has not been realized to date. Specially, a senior executive had stated that the manufacturer is in a position of mass producing the product, however its affordability and viability was questionable. Sad to say, it is yet unclear if such a patented telephone will literally be made, and we will have to wait for few form of official announcement to make any confirmations.
