A new Xiaomi patent for an “electronic device” has given an idea of what the heir apparent to the stalled Mi Mix line could look like or what it could feature. The potential Xiaomi Mi Mix smartphone in this patent has a slider mechanism that can be voice activated, and it has a display that wraps over the bottom edge and onto the rear side.

LetsGoDigital has shared yet another quirky Xiaomi patent, which has been expertly rendered by Sarang Sheth to give a clearer idea of what a smartphone based on this patent could end up looking like. It’s an odd-looking beast that could see the light of day as a potential Xiaomi Mi Mix 4, and at least it has a full-screen display to boast of, something that is frequently rumored about the Mi Mix device that is expected to make an appearance in 2021.

The Xiaomi smartphone has a built-in slider that can be operated either by a tap on the unblemished front display or apparently by voice. Magnets hold the screen in place as the slider reveals selfie cameras or whatever other sensors Xiaomi might want to incorporate into the mechanism. Obviously, this is not an entirely novel idea, as the Mi Mix 3 sports a slider for the front-facing cameras. But the device in the patent also has a semi-wraparound display.

In this case, the Xiaomi smartphone has a full-screen display that stretches over the bottom edge of the phone and then reaches up past the halfway point on the rear. This would leave room for a main camera system and its associated housing, with LetsGoDigital using the setup from the Mi 10T Pro as an example in the concept renders. As usual, it’s an intriguing and eccentric concept from Xiaomi, but it might be that the Mi Mix 4 will not need a slider as a solution as it could end up with the company’s 3rd-generation under-display camera technology instead.
