The patent that Xiaomi filed has been published by the Global Design Database of the World Intellectual Property Office. According to a source:
“The phone that Xiaomi will be working on will come with an edge to edge display on four sides and the phone will also have a dual camera on the back. The renders of the phone look really attractive, but it is not certain that the company will be releasing this phone for the market or not.”
The device which has been seen in the renders looks very much interesting because all the four sides of the device are rounded and there are no buttons available on the phone.
