Talking about smartphones as of now, display and has been an integral part of the smartphones. Not only this, there is a huge race between brands to make their device with the almost no bezels.
And if this is happening, how can Xiaomi be left behind, so it has also rolled out the new Xiaomi dual display feature.
In order to achieve that bezel-less display, companies are trying different ways like – reducing the size of the notch (dot notch, waterdrop notch), using moving mechanical parts in smartphones (pop-up cameras).
All these different ways are just to hide that front camera so that the smartphone can have a bezel-less display and still have a front camera. Some of the companies are even trying to hide the front camera under the display, Xiaomi is one of them.
But recently, we got a patent from Xiaomi and it looks like it’s a different take from Xiaomi on that ‘Front camera hide’ competition.
A sketch for the Xiaomi patent has surfaced online and it shows a device with two displays, one on each side. But, it’s not like any previous dual-display smartphones. It is something completely different.
Instead of having a whole secondary display on the rear, it’s a much smaller display. The size of this secondary display is the same as the size of the quad-camera housing on the back of the phone.
Placement of this secondary display is on the upper side of the back panel exactly on the opposite side of the camera housing. So, for the most part, it looks symmetrical.
This screen can be used as an always-on display to show the time and date. It also can be used to show caller ID and notification alerts when the phone is placed face down. Moreover, music playback could also be managed using this secondary display.
On the front, the device is nearly free of bezels. It has a small top bezel that houses all the necessary sensors like proximity sensor, notification sensor also the earpiece or front speaker.
It has a tiny chin. One thing to notice here is, it completely misses the front camera. That’s because the quad rear cameras could very well serve as a front camera but that is odd since the rear display is too small to serve as a proper viewfinder.
But that’s pretty much all that we know about this patent. We will surely be updating this post once we get more details.
As, we don’t want you to go so we have crafted some other news for you, which will surely interest you.
