Xiaomi Upcoming Smartphones

The newly filed patents were spotted by Lets Go Digital which revealed different camera modules of the upcoming Xiaomi smartphone. Looking at the patents we can say that the company is trying out new camera modules inspired by the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and Vivo X60 series. The very first patent of the phone shows off a punch-hole camera cutout design that accommodates a selfie camera setup with a bezel-less design. At the back, the handset features a long camera bump similar to the Galaxy S21 Ultra. The camera bumps feature a quad-camera setup with an LED flash. The camera specification is still unknown and we can expect more details in the upcoming days.

The second patent of the mysterious Xiaomi phone sports a similar front panel to the first patent, but has a completely different rear panel. The back panel shown in the patent is split vertically into two parts and the left port is comparatively darker than the other and also has the camera module. The rear-camera bump features up to five sensors including two massive cameras and a periscope sensor.

While the third patent image of the phone showcases a similar design to the Vivo X60 Pro. The rear panel of the patent seems to adapt the camera module design for its Mi 10t Pro. The camera bump includes triple camera sensors along with an LED flash. At the front, it houses a big screen with a centre-drilled punch-hole camera cutout design. The specifications of the smartphone are yet to be revealed by the company as we recommend you to take this information with a pinch of salt and wait for the official announcement.
