A poster of a Xiaomi phone touted as Arch has surfaced online revealing unique display feature.
Technology media house Gizmo China has gotten hold of a never-seen footage of the Xiaomi Arch smartphone. In the picture, the device is seen sporting a dual-edge display, where-in the screen is curved on both right and left sides. [View Picture, HERE]
Other features include the ominous Mi logo on the top left corner with a speaker grill in the centre and a front-facing camera to the left. And at the bottom, we see the three capacitive keys – recent apps, home and a back button.
It is said that with the introduction of dual-curved display on the sides, users will be able to place easy-to-access shortcuts of favourite apps in the extra-space. If the rumour turns out be true, Xiaomi Arch will become the world's first dual-edge display smartphone to hit the market.
However, it has be noted that this is an promotional photo of Xiaomi phone, any tech-savvy user with the knowledge of photo-shop software can dish out a similar image, so there is chance of this being a fake one.
As of now, Xiaomi is yet to respond to the media. Until the company comes out and clears the air over the rumours, this report will remain as pure speculations only.
World's smartphone leader, Samsung is also speculated to launch the limited edition dual-edge screen Galaxy S6 Edge along with Galaxy S6 later next year.
