Xiaomi is famous for their wrap-around screens, such as the spectacular Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha, and in their latest design patent, they take the concept to a new inwards-folding foldable which can be seen in a recently published design patent.
This patent includes their own renders, which shows a very thin in-ward-folding design with the screen wrapping around seamlessly from the inside of the device to the front screen.
The device has a prominent heel (like the Huawei Mate Xs), which appears to feature the cameras (with multiple lenses), power button, speaker, and USB-C connector.
The company is rumoured to be planning to release a foldable in Q4 2021, and has earlier also patented a more clamshell-style design.
The patent, which includes 21 images, can be seen here.
