Xiaomi has filed quite a few patents for foldable phones this year. Recently, we saw the Xiaomi Mi Mix Flip with a clamshell folding design while the Mi Mix Fold was already in the works, and now, a new patent has appeared online for a unique folding device. The patent has the Xiaomi Mi Fold foldable smartphone, and it has been rendered in the form of concepts, thanks to LetsGoDigital.

Last year, Xiaomi patented a design with the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA). The patent document was released yesterday and showcases multiple documents describing the design. The images from these documents have been rendered and it shows a foldable phone with an endless screen that goes around the sides to the front.

In the past, we have seen something similar from Huawei with its Huawei Mate Xs foldable phone. But unlike the Mate Xs’ outward folding design, Xiaomi’s Mi Fold has an inward folding design. It has thin sides with overall a thicker form factor.

It also has a vertical frame on one side that has all the buttons and connectors. The phone also features a speaker setup, a microphone, and a SIM-card tray on the upper side. At the bottom, it has the USB Type-C connector.
