In the new concept study for a smartphone, Xiaomi is using for the first time a display that is curved over all four edges of the device.
Since there is almost no frame left with the exception of the corners, the manufacturer promises the impression of a waterfall. The process of bending the glass is extremely complex, the process has to be carried out at a temperature of 800 degrees and high pressure.
Samsung and Huawei have been using high-end models for several model generations at Samsung and Huawei, but a Xiaomi smartphone with a four-fold curve would actually be something completely new to this extent. In view of the effort and the production costs, however, it could still take some time before it is ready for series production.
