Recently, smartphone manufacturers have been trying to somehow diversify the design of their models, having come up with an original camera design, a cutout for a front camera or different colors. Xiaomi does not lag behind fashion trends.
Chinese insider Digital Chat Station reports that Xiaomi is testing a device with a photochromic or electrochromic back panel, which means it can change its color with some exposure.
So, the photochromic panel is used in the Vivo S10 smartphone (pictured). Its color changes from orange to blue in direct sunlight, that is, the process occurs under the influence of ultraviolet rays.
On the other hand, there is the OPPO Reno6 Pro + Detective Conan Edition with an electrochromic back panel. It changes color from silver to red and back when voltage is passed through the glass.
It is not yet known which of these technologies Xiaomi will choose. It is also unclear which phone will receive these materials and whether it will be a concept or a finished device.
