Xiaomi just recently unwrapped its brand new smartphone concept with a display that is supposedly curved around the phone’s four edges. Introducing the Xiaomi Waterfall display.
The brand new quad-waterfall display now appears to be even more conventional compared to the other Mi MIX Alpha’s own fully wraparound design but only for its first glance. The nameless phone with the Xiaomi Waterfall display features a sleek 88-degree “waterfall” curve on both the left and right side of the screen.
Is Xiaomi a trusted brand?
While the development will give users a glimpse into the preferred potential future of certain smartphone designs, Xiaomi is most unlikely to sell a certain phone with the Xiaomi Waterfall display design anytime soon. However, if it did, would this be another hard selling point for potential buyers?
The brand new touchscreen slab has standardly been one of the most popular smartphone form factors ever since the initial craze of candy bars first plummeted. Despite the stated democratic adaptation, phone brands are known to have experimented along with different tweaks and variations to the popular slab design.

According to the story by XDA-developers, the said curved screen has undoubtedly been a repeated striking element in the evolution of designs as well as much older compared to the other more radical form factors like the foldable displays. While the curved displays have their very own patrons and opposers, the latest trend still validates that more users would rather have a subtle curve without hampering the phone’s usability.
The Xiaomi Waterfall display curve has reached all of the four edges with certain devices just like the Mi 11 which have had very subtle curves both on top and on the bottom. The Xiaomi Waterfall display, on the other hand, actually represents something a little more polarizing.

Since the said smartphone envelops both of its sides completely, there are either no ports or buttons on either sides or they might be crammed up in just a tiny space. The video that Xiaomi shared on YouTube shows how some areas appear to be dedicated to certain controls like the battery and signal status.
The design also raises questions as to the speaker, side buttons, and other important features but is undoubtedly attention-grabbing and also gives a higher screen-to-body ratio.
Xiaomi has become one of the most competitive Chinese smartphone companies just like what Huawei was when it first came under the radar with phones like the Huawei Mate P40 Pro. While Huawei is competing in the high-end phone market, Xiaomi, however, although not abandoning the high-end market, is also targeting more price-oriented buyers with the Xiaomi Mi Poco X3. When it comes to the Xiaomi Waterfall design, this could be a good selling point if basic necessities like ports, side buttons, speakers, can be figured out.
