Xiaomi announced its latest mobile phone concept: “Four Curves Waterfall Display”. This means that the screen of the unnamed phone not only has a deep 88-degree “waterfall” curve on the left and right sides but also has no top and bottom sides, so there is no room for ports or buttons.
Xiaomi stated that the purpose of this is to “extend the limit of the display to infinity” and achieve “a true, one-piece design without ports.”
An obvious question is how to work on all corners of the screen. According to the promotional images, Xiaomi seems to just leave them blank and leave small and round cuts.
That’s not so infinite, but it’s still clever trick-although it sounds like a nightmare for those who no longer like the relatively modest curved display on phones such as the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
As before the ordinary COVID, announcing the concept device through rendering will not bring the effect of personal display. A representative of Xiaomi said that this phone does exist and they used it themselves for good value for money.
According to Xiaomi, the display is the result of “numerous breakthroughs in glass bending and lamination technology” and “represents the sum of 46 breakthrough patents.”
This concept phone was launched after the announcement of the seemingly outdated Xiaomi technology last week, which is the “Mi Air Charge” true wireless charging system.
As early as 2019, Xiaomi released the Mi Mix Alpha mobile phone, the display of the mobile phone almost wrapped the entire device, although it was never sold in the end. This latest concept may never make it a commercially available device.
Xiaomi will announce the global launch of its more traditional Mi 11 flagship phone at an event next Monday, February 8.
