Xiaomi: Not Only Xiaomi 12, Is There A “Shell” Smartphone Coming?

1 Mins read

Xiaomi is about to announce Xiaomi 12 and MIUI 13, along with its new proposals in terms of wearable devices. According to a series of patents that have appeared online for a few hours, however, the Chinese giant would also be working on a folder device with a shell form factor.

At the moment, Xiaomi’s foldable lineup includes only the Mi Mix Fold series, which has a fold on the vertical axis, which generates a “wallet” form factor similar to that of Samsung Z Fold 3. Things could change very soon, however, because Xiaomi filed a patent for a clamshell device, probably designed to compete on the market with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, at CNIPA, or Chinese National Intellectual

The particularity of the phone is definitely the presence of a back screen next to the camera: it is a rather interesting feature and useful for a “shell” smartphone, but we have already seen it on the Galaxy Z Flip 3. However, it appears from the patent that the smartphone should have two rear cameras and a screen integrated into the camera housing.

Passing inside the device, this seems to have an ellipse-shaped punch-hole on the top screen, whose shape should depend on Xiaomi’s choice to integrate two front cameras on the device. The punch-hole should also be located at the top left of the device screen.

On the bottom of the smartphone we find a USB-C connector, the SIM housing and speakers. Instead, the ignition and volume adjustment keys are on the right side of the device. Obviously, since we are faced with a patent, we do not know the technical specifications of the phone, which could actually be just a concept and never be put on the market.

However, it is difficult to believe that Xiaomi wants to let go of the market of clamshell devices, which has proved to be incredibly dynamic and whose impetuous growth, driven by Samsung Z Flip 3, could make 2022 the
