The in-built wireless earbuds will house on top of the phone and can be pulled out on giving the command. A button may be found near the earbuds in the phone, which on pressing, the earbuds will come out. On viewing the patent, you will find two holes just above the phone in which the earbuds will be placed. It is very much like the S Pen of the Samsung Galaxy Note series.

Undoubtedly, Xiaomi is taking its technological innovation one step ahead. But there are still some limitations that would need to be considered. Firstly, the design of this latest wireless earbuds will make the phone more vulnerable to water and dust. Which means, Xiaomi’s upcoming smartphone will never get an IP rating. Coming on the body, the earbuds are relatively thick in design, so it becomes quite difficult to create a smartphone with a slim body that can in house earbuds. And even if the company tries to make the phone slim, they will have to make thinner earbuds which will be difficult to use.
This is not the first time when Xiaomi has patented any bold design idea for its smartphone. The intriguing design will surely eliminate the need to charge your earpods and make more room in your bags. Earlier this year, Xiaomi patent a smartphone design with a waterfall display. We have already got the first look at Xiaomi Mix Alpha, a wraparound OLED display smartphone that comes with extraordinary engineering. We hope the company takes this patent further and bring some astonishing features for users. But in most cases, patent designs never really come into existence.
