Xiaomi Waterfall Screen New Patent Exposure UI Covers Border Area on Both Sides of the Body

In late September 2019, Xiaomi filed a design patent with the State Intellectual Property Office that emphasizes the mobile phone user interface, which was released to the outside world on April 3, 2020, and included in the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) database. Friends who like MIX Alpha’s surround-up, apparent lying screen are no strangers to the user interface depicted in the patent. It is not known whether it will be Amilo 10’s successor.

The document depicts a rounded 90-degree angle (waterfall) display on both sides of the fuselage, which extends a distance farther to both sides, complemented by a certain amount of information display and manipulation elements.

Once on the main screen, the side UI displays common status icons such as power, signal strength, and so on. But after opening a particular app (such as a media player), it can show the appropriate control elements (pause/cut song, etc.).

Since the patent focuses on the user interface, the details of the back and bottom of the fuselage are not clear. Another thing that makes us curious is the borderless design on the front of the fuselage.

Visible opening slits at the top of the screen are small, but the exact front camera scheme is not known. If Xiaomi gives up the water drop-shaped notch or punch screen design, it is likely to be an electric lift or under-screen hidden front-up scheme.
