The ‘mobile device’ will transfer the received critical data to be sent to the Earthquake Processing Center. The report said the system would allow the underlying processor to identify and predict earthquake events based on multiple readings.
Foldable smartphone solution also patented
Xiaomi had earlier patented a foldable smartphone solution to reduce creases in foldable devices. The company had filed this patent with CNIPA (China National Intellectual Property Administration). The title of this patent is “Sport Structure of Flexible Screen, Flexible Screen Structure and Terminal Equipment”.
According to the documentation, the design includes two supporting structures for the flexible display panel. The second structure, which is closer to the screen, is deformed. Hence, when the device is turned off, the chances of the display getting affected by large creases in the long run are less.
