Smartphones with a scrollable or extendable screen are preparing to be the next trend in terms of innovation in the mobile segment. At a time when versions of LG, Samsung, and Oppo are due in 2021. Xiaomi seems to be one of the companies that is most actively working on it and he prepares the one that could be called Xiaomi Mi Alpha R.
The patent was registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for Beijing Xiaomi Mobile Software in late 2019 and had its documentation recently approved in October 2020. The discovery was made possible by publishing it in the World database Intellectual Property Office now.
The “flexible screen terminal” registered in the patent has a very interesting concept with a screen that can be enlarged up to 200% as you can see in the image above. Fortunately, the Concept Creator design made renderings so that we can better understand how his phone system works to enlarge his screen so much.
The most interesting thing is that the patent shows additional support on the back of the phone, which provides support for the cell phone to remain firm even when “open” preventing it from bending, for example. That way it really becomes a tablet.
The rear camera could still be used for selfies since part of the screen would be positioned beside it when the phone is in reduced mode. Check out the video showing better how it should work:
We still don’t have details of when or if the Xiaomi Mi Alpha R will reach the market, since a patent is not sure about the application of the idea, but it is very possible that the first mobile phones with a scrollable screen will appear in 2021, with the first one being from LG.
