If we talk about rare devices, Xiaomi has several in its catalog. It is one of the companies that innovate the most in design and presents the most extravagant devices. Today we have news about a possible folding mobile by Xiaomi. It would not only be foldable, but it would also have a very interesting rotating camera. At the moment it is only a sketch presented in a patent, although there is good news: the patent has been approved.
This could be the strangest Xiaomi mobile
The design comes after Lets Go Digital has unveiled approval for a Xiaomi patent. The pictures show a foldable device in the style of the Motorola RAZR. Folded looks like a fairly compact device, similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip. When deployed, the device has a wider area where part of the battery, and more components could be accommodated. It is in this area where the cameras would be.
Of course. This terminal would not need a front camera since all that block of cameras rotates to be able to orient to any angle. The patent sketches explain this very well. Depending on the photograph you want to take, you could change the orientation of the camera for one side or the other.
It is not the first time that we see a mobile with a rotating camera, but it is the first time that this camera is mounted on a folding device. The idea seems good and the device is quite thin and compact, so it has our approval to be launched on the commercial market, at least for now.
The bad news is that it is a patent, so Xiaomi could launch something similar or never do it. This type of sketches so spectacular usually remain forgotten and never see the light as a final device, so you will have to wait. The company has been working on a folding mobile for a while, although there are not too many details about it.
