Xiaomi already presented a double foldable phone on video in January, and later in April we came across a report claiming that a foldable clamshell phone was also being prepared. A recent CNIPA patent indicates that Xiaomi is working on a foldable Wild Clamshell phone that has a rotating camera module bar at the top.
The construction diagrams show a foldable phone with a rectangular bar turned up to 180 degrees. There are four cameras on one side and a single camera on the opposite end. The camera module also bulges outward a lot, but when the phone is in a collapsed state, it sits flush with the case.
Not much is known about the name of the phone or the other internal specifications, but the top-heavy design makes it out. The phone looks a bit strange. And since this is just a patent application that was released on May 22, it may never be launched as a commercially available product.
