Xiaomi patents a smartphone with a built-in headset

Xiaomi Corporation, the Chinese electronics company has always been eager to experiment with upcoming technology and design.

An example of its innovative idea is the Mi Mix Alpha Concept Smartphone with a RAM of 12GB and internal storage of 512MB.

Just recently, a new patent has disclosed a unique smartphone that comes with a built-in wireless headset. Reports from LetsGoDigital show that a request for a patent from WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) was submitted by Xiaomi, and was published on 24th July 2020.

The specific feature that was most obvious in the patent is the presence of two earbuds accommodated on the top of the device. The earphones can be pulled out for use and kept back comfortably like a stylus.

They are housed within the body of the smartphone, thus, taking care of the need to move along with an additional charging case.

Another addition to the uniqueness of the earphones is the ability of the heads to bend. When not in use, they are placed upwards to be house inside the smartphone, and when in use, they can be curved to fit the user’s ear.

The earphones can also be used as a speaker for calls by being kept slightly out of its housing. The smartphone in itself is not exactly extraordinary, however, it features a full-screen body on the front with a small number of bezels.

Although this design appears to be interesting and useful on paper, the device might be exposed to certain undesirable effects that include poor water resistance and additional battery drain. 

It is, however, still not known if Xiaomi would make the device, or if they are already trying to do everything necessary to make it possible.

However, considering its beautiful features, we hope that it is eventually done, and brought to the mainstream market.
