Hate upgrading your smartphone when the hardware gets outdated? Xiaomi’s modular smartphone could be the solution to that problem. A recently uncovered patent from the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) for an “electronic devices” appear to show sketches of a smartphone-like device that consists of separate modules. In other words, you’ll be able to swap out nearly all sections of it when necessary. Read more for the patent and additional pictures.

These renders, created by Dutch graphic designer Jermaine Smit, give us a pretty good idea of what a prototype would look like. The modules attach to each other with a magnetic sliding rail mechanism, and apparently, the main display is formed when everything is connected, all without seams or notches, thanks to an under-display front camera. There’s no word yet on when we’ll see this device, but if Mobile World Congress goes as planned in 2022, expect an announcement before then.
