Xiaomi launches a large number of smartphones every year. The company is also working on new designs for its future phones. In the recent development, we have come to know that the Chine manufacturers have published a new smartphone patent (via LetsGoDigital).

This design style is expected to be applied to the next generation of Xiaomi 12 series mobile phones, the biggest feature is the use of a rare symmetrical rear camera design.


From the published patent pictures, it can be seen that the front of this phone is similar to the Mi 10 and Mi 11 series. It uses a circular micro-curved screen. The front camera is located in the upper left corner, but the rounded screen has a larger R-value.

The frame and four corners of the phone are more rounded, and the curvature of the left and right parts of the back cover is larger. It is expected that the hand feel will fit better.
