Xiaomi today unveiled another revolutionary smartphone like you’ve never seen before. It features a waterfall screen that is heavily curved on all four sides.
Earlier, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun announced on his Weibo page that the presentation of the new device will take place today. The teaser hinted that we are talking about a flexible smartphone, but only the assumption of using a waterfall screen was confirmed.
Xiaomi reports that the device uses a revolutionary screen that is curved at an 88° angle on all sides. In fact, all the frames have been replaced by a screen (only parts of the case are visible in the corners), in addition, the smartphone has no buttons and holes. When creating this smartphone, the company has registered 46 patents worldwide.
The smartphone uses the industry’s first four-curve waterfall screen, but the real challenge lies in the production of this shaped glass. Xiaomi has created its own glass processing equipment at 800 °C and high pressure.
The smartphone has a sub-screen front camera, sound is transmitted using screen vibration, support for high-speed fast charging and other innovative technologies has also been announced.
So far, these are all the details about the new product.
