Xiaomi is known for applying for many patents and now another one has just been approved that suggests a possible innovative path for the brand’s foldable smartphones. According to the documentation, Xiaomi can now use a unique flexible screen design that can be removed from the body of the smartphone.

According to the same documentation, the body and screen of the smartphone can be separated from each other, and the flexible screen wraps around the body of the smartphone when both elements are connected.

This means that the screen can be fully unfolded when separated from the rest of the smartphone frame. The patent also clarifies that after being removed from the body of the terminal, the screen is fully functional, since there is wireless data transmission between both elements.

For the screen to be operational outside the body of the terminal, it will have to be equipped with a separate battery from the main one, in addition to having to include basic computing.

Otherwise, no further details are known, such as the size of the screen and what kind of wireless communication standard it will use to communicate with the body of the smartphone.

It is also not confirmed that Xiaomi is already working on equipment with these characteristics, but the Chinese brand’s patents usually show what the future of its mobile terminals will be like.
