Xiaomi filed a design patent for a solar-powered phone with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office).
Xiaomi’s solar-powered phone
The integration of the solar panel is another solution to wireless charging. Basically, it will be able to charge the battery of the phone using solar energy.
Based on the digital sketch diagram, the proposed design has a full-screen display on the front. The front camera may be a pop-up or an in-display camera.
While on the rear, the solar panel covers a large portion of the back cover. It also has a dual-camera setup with a flash positioned vertically on the upper left corner. We do not see a fingerprint scanner here so it is also possible that it might have an in-display biometric scanner.
But for now, the solar-powered phone of Xiaomi is still just a proposed patent design and it is not sure if Xiaomi will really push this into production.
