Xiaomi Unveils Quad-Curved Waterfall Display Concept!


Xiaomi Quad-curved Waterfall Display Concept Smartphone

When early adopters of curved smartphone displays, like Samsung, are moving back to a more traditional 2.5D flattened screen design, other players like Oppo and Xiaomi seem to have taken a keen interest in it.
Oppo had revealed their extremely curved waterfall display a couple of months ago, and now, Xiaomi has decided to take it up a notch, with a four-sided curved screen phone concept!

They're calling this a Quad-Curved Waterfall Display; a rather lazy and lengthy name. But the showcase video seems pretty far from a cheesy CG render.
The phone in question doesn't have a name yet, but the display tech is very much a manufacturable reality. Xiaomi has also written a detailed article on their blog describing the complex methods employed in making such an extreme curved edge, and their vision of this button-less, port-less phone being the future,
"Unibody no-port design, a new direction for future smartphones"
Xiaomi firmly believes that Apple's early vision for a portless phone is very much the right path in achieving the best future phone concept. It does make sense when you think about it; no more charging port confusion or hardware incompatibility. 
Not unlike the modern-day wireless chargers, one charger supports all compatible devices regardless of ports and hardware configurations.
Granted, the wireless options we have today aren't always as reliable or even efficient to wired solutions of Yester-year, but once we get started on something, we can always come up with better ways of achieving it.
