Xiaomi has patented a smartphone design which has integrated solar panel in the back. The design appears to be slim and sleek featuring an edge-to-edge screen despite the solar panel at the back. There’s no front camera on the phone which make us believe the phone will have under-screen camera with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
No mainstream company have thought of the idea which sounds appealing but is not a completely unique idea because it may be a complicated project. You know why, LG launched a solar powered charging cover in 2010 which was not that impressive as it only gives 2 mins of talktime after 10 mins of solar charging.
So as fascinating as it sounds, an in-built solar-powered smartphone might be good for the environment but surely a challenge for Xiaomi.
