Recently, a new patent filing by Xiaomi was approved by the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) and it contains designs for a smartphone with a pop-up system with multiple cameras. Looks like, the company is working on two new phones, both with dual-sided displays that wrap around the body.

Xiaomi took a lot of us by surprise past year for a concept phone called the Mi Mix Alpha which had a display which wrapped around the body, barring a small strip for the camera upholstery. The folks over at YoLeaks made renders based on the patents that'll give you an idea of what the phones could look like. The render highly resembles the Huawei Mate X when it is folded. Xiaomi also has some really interesting patents like the clamshell foldable smartphone design that is very likely to get to see the light of the day sometime later this year. Model B shows a wrap over design from the top of the phone over the horizontal edge.

The patent reveals that the back panel will come with a dual-camera setup along with a LED flash. It's also worth pointing out that none of the phones have a front facing camera because the rear-cameras double up as a selfie shooter.

She expresses that she hasn't seen the entire collection yet, but the ivory and burgundy track trousers may be her favorite from the line.

The patent suggests that both the designs of the phone don't have any physical button.

Imagine if this device could make it to the market next year and with the design which is really interesting, it's going to make a big impact on the part of Xiaomi as wanting to be a pioneer of modern smartphone design rather than just copying other company's innovation. Now as per Xiaomi's latest patent design, these camera lens numbers seem to increase in future. We recommend you to take this information with a pinch of salt and wait for the official confirmation.
