Xiaomi has been very busy this year, especially for patent filings. The Chinese phone manufacturer had previously filed patents for two foldable phones called Mi Mix FoldÂ andÂ Mi Mix Flip. Recently, report emerged that the Xiaomi Mi Fold with an inward folding design. Now, the company has filed another patent that reveals a simple flip phone in all its glory.
The Xiaomi flip is a new flip phone from the Chinese manufacturer that comes with a simple flip mechanism. Xiaomi had filed the new patent with WIPO(World Intellectual Property Organisation) and it was first discovered by 91Mobies.
According to the patent, the Xiaomi flip has a Mi Mix Flip-like design with an inward folding mechanism. It seems to have also drawn inspiration from the Samsung Galaxy Z flipÂ as the Xiaomi flip has almost the same form factor.
The smartphone has dual-rear cameras placed horizontally, along with a secondary display. When unfolded, there is a large primary screen with thin bezels. It has a dual front camera setup at the top left of the screen.
Moreover, the phone has a volume rocker and a power button on the right. It features a speaker grille and a USB Type-C port at the bottom.
