Transsion is a Chinese company which manufactures brands such as Techno, Idel and Infinix. They mostly operate in South Asia and Africa. In fact, they were the largest smartphone manufacturers in Africa till 2017. Earlier today, we uncovered a patent document from CNIPA which contains at least 5 different design for Techno smartphones.
According to the document, the application number for the patent is 202030370691.0. The patent was filed back in July this year and got approved on 8th of December. Much to our surprise, they didn’t file for a single patent, but instead, they filed for 5 different patents altogether.
Among them, the first one has a circular camera module at the back with quad-camera setup accompanied by an LED flash. Moving towards the front, the device has a dual-camera setup. On the right-hand side, you can notice the power button and the volume rockers. At the bottom, it has a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port and the speaker. While the sim tray could be located at the top of the device.
The patent for the second and the third device remains the same. However, the camera placement at the rear has negligible differences.
Coming to the fourth and fifth patent, both of them have a rectangular camera module at the back. Both of them houses a quad-camera setup accompanied by an LED flash. From the looks of it, the camera modules look awfully similar to the Mi 10T and Vivo X50 Pro smartphone.
That said, all these smartphones might come with an AMOLED display considering that there is neither the side-mounted fingerprint scanner nor the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner can be located on the display. Thus, these smartphones will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Although, the company hasn’t stated any definitive statement regarding the device. But if so, we might expect this to be upper mid-range smartphones.
