Hi Mi Fans,

Chinese smartphone makers are on the spree of launching unique smartphones with innovative design. Xiaomi, a China-based smartphone maker has patented a smartphone design that packs a solar panel on the phone’s back.

Xiaomi's Smartphone Patent

The sketch shows that the smartphone comes with a no-notch display but it’s not clear where the front-facing camera is placed. There’s also no indication of the pop-up module for the front camera. The company could be opting for an in-display camera technology for this one, the technology for which has already been showcased by Xiaomi.

On the backside, the smartphone comes with a dual-camera module with the camera sensors placed vertically and having an LED flash in between both the sensors. There’s no fingerprint sensor on the back panel, confirming the in-display fingerprint sensor module.

Round Up

The solar panel is the most noticeable part of the phone, which covers the majority of the phone’s back panel. Surprisingly, the solar panel is thinner than the camera module. Through this integration, it will be possible to charge through the phone via solar energy. There are a few other companies that have explored the idea of a solar-powered smartphone and now Xiaomi is also working towards the same.

However, there’s no information available regarding the phone’s launch. While the patent has been granted, this does not guarantee that the company will actually produce the phone and bring it to the market. It just means that the company is exploring the idea and is working towards it.

Interesting idea. The battery must be big enough to store the electricity for the night. Also flexible and powerful enough

the subject that will depend on the actual use, whether it should be exposed directly to the sun or not, the temperature, etc.
