Smartphone makers are coming up with new designs to make their devices stand out from the crowd. While some designs are meant for better user experience, some are just concepts to showcase the company’s capabilities.
One of the most unique smartphone design was unveiled by Xiaomi last year in the form of the Mi MIX Alpha concept smartphone. Now, Huawei has also patented a smartphone design with a similar design of the wrap-around display, reports LetsGoDigital.
The phone showcased in the patent application seems similar to the Huawei Mate X but instead of being a foldable smartphone, it features a wrap-around display that extends from the front-side to the back.
However, unlike the front panel, the back of the phone is not entirely covered with the display. The display panel on the back accounts for 60-70 percent of the space while the remaining is used for the triple-camera setup.

Huawei has been one of the leading smartphone brands when it comes to innovation. It was among the first to launch a commercial foldable smartphone and is reportedly working on its successor, which could go official this year.
But given the current situation of Huawei not being able to procure necessary components because of the U.S. sanctions, it remains to be seen if the Chinese giant actually plans to start working on this wrap-around display smartphone.
