Apple launches similar design patents after Xiaomi surround-screen phone release

Information

In September this year, Xiaomi released the new surround screen MIX Alpha, which has a 360-degree screen surround. Now, Apple has come to make fun.

Recently, the information released by the US Patent and Trademark Office shows that Apple has submitted a new patent for a "wrap-around" mobile phone screen design. The new patent will use a flexible curved screen with two screens in front and back, and a "no bangs" visual experience. Allows users to see the screen of the iPhone / iPad device from any angle.

In addition, the patent also shows a technology for minimizing the frame of the display screen. The front and back screens have a large arc, which makes the traditional frame of the smart phone nearly disappear. It is reported that as early as September of this year, Apple's new surround screen patent was approved. The first version of the surround screen patent was applied for in 2013. This exposure is the previous upgraded version.

Netizens have said that Xiaomi MIX Alpha surround screen phones have encountered rivals. But some analysts said that compared to Xiaomi MIX Alpha, Apple's patent production is more difficult. Apple has never been too aggressive with new technologies, so it is unlikely to see a "surround screen" in a short time.

On September 24 this year, Xiaomi released the new MIX Alpha. According to Xiaomi, the biggest feature of MIX Alpha is the full "surround screen" design. The screen surrounds the body 360 degrees and the screen ratio reaches 180.6%. In order to match the "surround screen" design, the handset, front camera and side buttons of MIX Alpha all disappeared. It adopts a new product screen sounding technology, and uses ultrasonic waves to sense the distance.

Lei Jun said when he was doing MIX Alpha, "This is not an easy task. It requires imagination and mine at home." He introduced that Xiaomi has set up a project team of nearly 1,000 people for two years of research and development, investing 5 100 million R & D funds.

As a concept phone, MIX Alpha is currently undergoing small-scale trial production. It is expected to be available in December this year, priced at 19,999 yuan. Regarding this high pricing, Lei Jun said that this phone is close to 20,000 yuan without research and development costs, and the final price of 19,999 yuan is very kind, mainly for the enthusiast experience.

In addition, as the world's largest mobile phone manufacturer, Samsung has not been idle. The company has been focusing on surround screen technology since 2016.

According to previous media reports, on September 2, 2016, Samsung submitted a patent application to the US Patent and Trademark Office. The application showed a double-sided smartphone with a surround display extending to the back of the device.

The patent contains ten concept drawings showing a "display device" design. The front of the device has a large home screen. Part of the screen extends to the back to display more applications. The area of ​​the rear screen looks like Half of the front screen.

On October 17, last year, Samsung filed a new patent with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO). This patent encloses both sides of the phone with a screen, which increases the practical area of ​​the screen and achieves true borderless. However, the new technology also has disadvantages, that is, because of the perspective problem, the phone needs to be rotated to see the edge screen.

Industry insiders pointed out that with the increasing proportion of mobile phone screens, more and more mobile phones with large curvature screen technologies such as "waterfall screens" and "ring screens" have appeared. The development of curved screens / flexible screens / folding screens of mobile phone screens has also gone further, and the technology has become more mature. The emergence of surround screen will also bring innovation to the mobile phone industry.
