Losing your wireless earbuds can be a painful experience and luckily Xiaomi may have found a solution to this annoying problem. The company apparently has a smartphone in the works with a full-screen design thanks to a camera under the screen, and it has two round holes on the top that serve as compartments to store your wireless earbuds.
The Chinese manufacturer has submitted additional information to The Hague International Design System, which is part of the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) and this information concerns the filing of two patents. One shows the design of the smartphone, while the second emphasizes an audio accessory. The documentation was submitted earlier this year, on July 24, 2020, with the following details.
Xiaomi patent description I.: The title of this design is “Mobile Phone”; the product in which the design is incorporated is mainly used for communication, games, music game, information display and / or operating program; there are two holes in the top part of a mobile phone, where earphones can be placed.
Xiaomi patent description II: The title of this design product is “Earphone”; the product incorporating the design is mainly used to wear inner ear to transfer audio; the essential features of the design application are the shape.
While Samsung also has a compartment to store the S-Pen for its Galaxy Note series, this approach is a very interesting one and solves a major problem for those eager to get that ‘wireless’ audio experience. The wireless earbuds placed in the ‘all-screen’ smartphone can be rotated and while stowed in their compartments, the speaker points upwards. If the user wants the device to function as a telephone speaker, the earbuds can be left slightly out of the opening of the smartphone.
Since this is a different patent and quite a unique patent, we are not sure if Xiaomi will put the handset into production. Don’t get us wrong, we love the idea of a two-hole smartphone to store our wireless earbuds in, but we also need to understand that Xiaomi just can’t mass produce something that will only buy a small percentage of its customer base.
We are also not sure when the first camera camera will be released under the company’s screen, as that technology is yet to be improved. Hopefully, we will hear some development from Xiaomi regarding this unique product in the coming months, so stay tuned.
