According to China’s Tianyancha business investigation platform, Hubei Xingji Times Technology Co., Ltd., which is affiliated with domestic auto giant Geely, has recently obtained clearance for two smartphone design patents. These are the first patents related to the appearance of mobile phones to be leaked since Geely announced plans to develop its own smartphones.

According to the patent abstract, this design product is used for mobile communication or human-machine interconnection, and “the key point of the design is in the form”. The patent drawing shows that the front of Geely’s smartphone features a notch, while the rear cameras are arranged in a regular central triangle shape. The frame is designed with the typical right-angled layout, and the left and right power buttons and volume keys are relatively close to the top.

Li Shufu, the founder and chairman of the company, personally took the lead in founding Xingji Times Technology Co., Ltd. According to Li’s vision, smartphones can create rich consumption scenarios with car networking and satellite Internet, to provide users with a more convenient, intelligent, interconnected, multi-screen and interactive experience.

Rumors have emerged earlier that Geely’s smartphone company is in contact with domestic mobile phone maker MEIZU to discuss a possible acquisition.

Besides Geely, there are rumors that NIO Inc., a China-based new energy vehicle company, will also enter the smartphone industry. In this regard, William Li, Founder, Chairman and CEO of NIOonce said that the company’s smartphone business was still in the research stage.
