I believe everyone has seen various camera combinations many times, but have you seen that there are cameras on the four corners of the back of the phone? Recently, according to media LetsGoDigita, Xiaomi applied for a design patent to WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) last month, and the patent document was made public on February 5, 2021. It is worth noting that the patent will usually be announced for at least six months or so, and this time Xiaomi’s latest appearance patent was disclosed shortly after the application.
According to the patent drawing, the phone adopts a full-screen design, and the front lens does not use a punch-hole and pop-up design, so it is speculated that it may use under-screen camera technology. In addition, compared to the current flagship model of Xiaomi, this patented Xiaomi mobile phone is relatively thicker. According to LetsGoDigita, the phone may be a mid-range model. Judging from the display picture, the bottom of the machine is equipped with a USB-C interface and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The volume and power buttons are the same as the current mainstream mobile phones, located on the right side of the phone.
The most interesting design of this phone is that the four corners of the back of the phone are integrated with camera modules. Each module has a camera. Since this is only an appearance patent, the detailed parameters of the camera and the location of the flash are still unknown. I believe that many netizens will think of an appearance patent from a domestic mobile phone parts supplier not long ago after seeing this. That’s right, that is the strange mobile phone with two cameras and one flash at four corners. However, it is still unknown whether this Xiaomi mobile phone will be released. After all, patents only represent one direction, and actual production still faces many problems.
