As per a report by Gizmochina, Hisense has released a new smartphone patent with a unique design involving a wraparound display. The included renders suggest a square-formed handset with a straight screen design on the front. It appears to include slim borders on three sides. It is seen with no holes. The overall look of the smartphone is similar to that of Mi Mix Alpha.
The Hisense handset could be equipped with a quad rear camera setup. Three cameras are said to be arranged vertically, while the periscope telephoto lens could be placed on the side. The handset reportedly packs a single camera on the side of the fuselage. As per the report, Hisense may use flexible OLED materials for the new handset.
The Mi Mix Alpha was unveiled back in 2019 as a concept design with a price tag of CNY 19,999 (roughly Rs. 2,00,000). Therefore, the upcoming Hisense smartphone could come with a high price tag.
Xiaomi's Mi Mix Alpha features a 7.92-inch flexible OLED screen. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC, paired with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of onboard storage. It has a triple rear camera setup, comprising a 108-megapixel camera with a Samsung HMX sensor, a 20-megapixel wide-angle camera, and a 12-megapixel camera. It is backed by a 4,050mAh battery with support for 40W fast charging.
