Xiaomi patents foldable smartphone that offers nearly 100% screen to body ratio

Xiaomi has just published a new patent. This patent was for a “flexible screen module,” with its highlight feature being that it has nearly a 100 percent screen to body ratio.

The publication number for the new patent is CN112839115A and ITHome reported that the patent also includes a summary that offers us a brief description of the technology. This display technology also includes two regions or two display areas along with a hinge mechanism. In the sub area of the second display region, the device houses a camera module. The camera system moves along with the hinge mechanism. Through this movement, the second display of the device can be used as a regular front display and can even uncover the cameras for rear photography as well.

Furthermore, this also allows the foldable smartphone from the Chinese tech giant to have the same camera system face the front side. Although, when the front facing camera is not required, the device can achieve a high screen to body ratio that nears 100 percent. Unfortunately, finer details regarding this handset is currently unknown and it is unclear if the company is actually working on such a product or is just covering all bases. So stay tuned for more updates if there are any notable updates regarding this patent.
