[0027] As illustrated in Fig. 1, in an embodiment, a mobile terminal 10 is a smart phone. The mobile terminal 10 includes a terminal device 100 and a casing assembly 200, and the casing assembly 200 is coupled to the terminal device 100. Specifically, the terminal device 100 may include a display screen 110 and a camera module (not shown). The display screen 110 may be configured to display information and provide a user with an interaction interface. The camera module may be configured to capture photographs, videos, or perform video phone, etc. The casing assembly 200 is positioned at a side of the display screen 110 opposite a display area of the display screen 110. The display screen 110 and the casing assembly 200 may define a space therebetween for mounting a battery, a circuit board, and other electronic components of the mobile terminal 10. A processor, a baseband chip, a storage chip, and a power management module, etc. for the mobile terminal 10 can be integrated on the circuit board. The casing assembly 200 covers the circuit board, the battery, and the camera module of the terminal device 100, so as to protect the electronic components of the terminal device 100. The casing assembly 200 may also have a decorative effect, thereby beautifying appearance of the mobile terminal 10. In other embodiments, the mobile terminal 10 may be a tablet computer, etc.

[0028] As illustrated in Fig. 2 and Fig. 3, the casing assembly 200 includes a rear casing 210 and a wearproof assembly 220. The rear casing 210 includes an outer surface 211 and an inner surface 213 opposite the outer surface. The rear casing 210 defines a mounting hole through the outer surface 211 and the inner surface 213. Specifically, after the casing assembly 200 is mounted to the terminal device 100, the outer surface 211 of the rear casing 210 provides a surface which the user can directly touch. As illustrated in Fig. 4 and Fig. 5, the wearproof assembly 220 includes a coupling member 221 and a decorative member 223 coupled to the coupling member 221. The coupling member 221 passes through the mounting hole and shields the mounting hole, and the coupling member 221 is fixedly coupled to the rear casing 210. The coupling member 221 and the decorative member 223 protrude from the outer surface 211. It could be understood that, in the embodiments of the present disclosure, the term "shield" means that the coupling member 221 can block ambient light. For instance, the wearproof assembly 220 has an overall light transmittance of zero or a low overall light transmittance, such that all or most of the ambient light cannot penetrate the wearproof assembly 220 to a side where the inner surface 213 is. The camera module of the terminal device 100 has a light hole, the light hole has an orthographic projection on the outer surface 211 of the rear casing 210, the wearproof assembly 220 has an orthographic projection on the outer surface 211 of the rear casing 210, the orthographic projection of the light hole is outside the orthographic projection of the wearproof assembly 220, that is the wearproof assembly 220 is not used to introduce light to the camera module.

[0029] In an embodiment, the coupling member 221 is adhered to the inner surface 213 of the rear casing 210 by means of a double-sided tape or in a dispensing manner, such that the coupling member 221 is reliably coupled to the rear casing 210. As illustrated in Fig. 5, the coupling member 221 defines a recess 222 at a side of the coupling member opposite the inner surface 213, and the recess 222 is exposed to a side where the outer surface 211 is. The decorative member 223 is embedded in the recess 222 and fixedly coupled to the coupling member 221. The decorative member 223 can be coupled to the coupling member 221 by means of a double-sided tape or in a dispensing manner, such that the decorative member 223 can be reliably coupled to the coupling member 221 as one piece. Furthermore, as illustrated in Fig. 5, in an embodiment, the coupling member 221 includes a body 225 and a boss 227 which are integrally formed. The body 225 and the boss 227 are in the shape of cylinder. The boss 227 is positioned at a periphery of the body 225, and the body 225 passes through the mounting hole, while the boss 227 is positioned at the side where the inner surface 213 is. The recess 222 is positioned in the body 225. The recess 222 has a circular cross section, and the decorative member 223 has a circular cross section matching the recess 222, such that the decorative member 223 can be embedded in the recess 222. A double-sided tape or an adhesive dispensing layer can be further provided between the boss 227 and the inner surface 213 of the rear casing 210, such that the coupling member 221 is fixedly coupled to the rear casing 210. With the above structure, the wearproof assembly 220 can be mounted in the mounting hole from the side where the inner surface 213 of the rear casing 210 is, which is beneficial for assembly of the wearproof assembly 220 and the rear casing 210.

[0030] In another embodiment, the coupling member 221 includes a body 225 and a boss 227 which are integrally formed. The body 225 and the boss 227 are in the shape of cylinder. The boss 227 is positioned at a periphery of the body 225, the body 225 passes through the mounting hole and is coupled to the rear casing 210, and the boss 227 is positioned at the side where the outer surface 211 is. The recess 222 is positioned in the boss 227. The recess 222 has a circular cross section, and the decorative member 223 has a circular cross section matching the recess 222, such that the decorative member 223 can be embedded in the recess 222. A double-sided tape or an adhesive dispensing layer can be further provided between the boss 227 and the outer surface 211 of the rear casing 210, such that the coupling member 221 is fixedly coupled to the rear casing 210. With the above structure, the wearproof assembly 220 can be mounted in the mounting hole from the side where the outer surface 211 of the rear casing 210 is, which is also beneficial for assembly of the wearproof assembly 220 and the rear casing 210.

[0031] In an embodiment illustrated in Fig. 5, the decorative member 223 has a circular cross section, and the body 225 has an annular portion defining the recess 222. In other embodiments, the cross section of the decorative member 223 may be rectangular, triangular, pentagonal, hexagonal, or heart-shaped, etc. The cross section of the body 225 may be rectangular, triangular, pentagonal, hexagonal, or heart-shaped, etc. With design of the shapes of the coupling member 221 and the decorative member 223, diversified decorative effects can be achieved by cooperation therebetween, thereby improving the appearance of the mobile terminal 10. In an embodiment, portions of the decorative member 223 and the coupling member 221 protruding from the outer surface 211 are rounded, such that the decorative member 223 has a spherical exposed end face, and the coupling member 221 has an end face protruding from the outer surface 211 and capable of coupled to a spherical face of the decorative member 223, achieving a comparatively rounded decorative effect.

[0032] The coupling member 221 can be made of stainless steel, aluminum alloy, ceramic, or plastic, etc. A surface of the coupling member 221 may achieve diversified decorative effects through surface treatment process. For instance, for the metal coupling member 221, the surface thereof can be treated by processes, such as anodic oxidation, physical vapor deposition (PVD), or electroplating, etc., thereby intensifying a surface property of the coupling member 221 and enabling the surface of the coupling member 221 to show some decorative effect. For the nonmetal coupling member 221, the surface thereof can be treated by processes, such as spraying, etc., thereby intensifying the surface property of the coupling member 221 and enabling the surface of the coupling member 221 to show some decorative effect. The decorative member 223 can be made of metal, such as brass, aluminum alloy, etc., or nonmetal, such as glass, ceramic and plastic, etc. The surface of the decorative member 223 may be provided with copywriting, such as a LOGO, etc. and texture thereon, thereby decorating the mobile terminal 10 in a better way. For instance, in an embodiment in which the decorative member 223 is made of glass, the decorative member 223 may be made of transparent glass, and a pattern layer is arranged on a surface of the decorative member 223 attached to a bottom of the recess 222. The decorative member 223 can form a three-dimensional pattern effect by means of light refraction and reflection, to improve the appearance of the mobile terminal 10.

[0033] In the above casing assembly 200, since the coupling member 221 and the decorative member 223 of the wearproof assembly 220 protrude from the outer surface 211 of the rear casing 210, when a side of the casing assembly 200 of the mobile terminal 10 is arranged on a support, such as a table, the wearproof assembly 220 at the side of the casing assembly 200 where the outer surface 211 is can reduce a contact area between the outer surface 211 of the rear casing 210 and the support, thereby reducing a probability of scratching and wearing on the rear casing 210. In an embodiment illustrated in Fig. 4, one wearproof assembly 220 is provided, while in other embodiments, a plurality of wearproof assemblies 220 may be provided. For instance, as an embodiment, four wearproof assemblies 220 are provided and mounted at four corners of the rear casing 210, such that the wearproof assembly 220 can protect the rear casing 210 from scratching or wearing in a better way.

[0034] As illustrated in Fig. 6 and Fig. 7, in an embodiment, the rear casing 210 includes an outer layer 215 and an inner layer 217 coupled to the outer layer 215. The outer surface 211 is positioned at the outer layer 215, and the inner surface 213 is positioned at the inner layer 217. The inner layer 217 can be made of metal, such as aluminum alloy, magnesium alloy, and stainless steel, etc., or nonmetal, such as plastic and ceramic, etc. The outer layer 215 can be made of glass or a material having a good light transmittance performance, such as plastic and optical coating, etc. The outer layer 215 is transparent with a light transmittance of more than 90%. The inner layer 217 defines a light through hole 218, and the ambient light can penetrate the outer layer 215 from the outer surface 211 and emit from the side of the inner surface 213 through the light through hole 218. The outer layer 215 is wearproof to some extent, the inner layer 217 can be therefore protected from wearing in a better way. The inner layer 217 can be made of a material having a high strength, such that the rear casing 210 has a high strength. After assembly between the casing assembly 200 and the terminal device 100, the camera module is positioned at the side of the rear casing 210 opposite the outer surface 211, the ambient light can penetrate the outer layer 215 from the outer surface 211 and emit to the camera module through the light through hole 218. The mobile terminal 10 with the above structure can has a comparatively integral appearance, because the wearproof assembly 220 may be made comparatively small without a large occupied area on the outer surface 211 of the rear casing 210, and the side of the rear casing 210 where the outer surface 211 is can have an unexceptionable integral appearance. It could be understood that, the inner layer 217 may be omitted.

[0035] As illustrated in Fig. 8, which is a schematic view of a terminal device 100 provided by an embodiment of the present disclosure. The terminal device 100 may include a radio frequency (RF) circuit 501, a memory 502 including one or more computer readable storage mediums, an input unit 503, a display unit 594, a sensor 504, an audio circuit 506, a wireless fidelity (WiFi) module 507, a processor 508 including one or more processing cores, a power source 509 and other components. It could be understood by the persons skilled in the art that the structure of the terminal device 100 shown in Fig. 8 does not limit the terminal device 100, and the terminal device may include components more or less than the illustrated components or a combination of some components, or other arrangements of components.

[0036] The RF circuit 501 can be used to receive and transmit a message or to receive and transmit a signal during a call. Especially, when downlink information from a base station is received, the RF circuit sends the downlink information to the one or more processors 508 for processing, and additionally sends uplink data to a base station. Usually, the RF circuit 501 includes but is not limited to an antenna, at least one amplifier, a tuner, one or more oscillator, a subscriber identity module (SIM) card, a transceiver, a coupler, a low noise amplifier (LNA), a duplexer, etc. In addition, the RF circuit 501 can communicate with the network and other devices via wireless communication. The wireless communication can employ any communication standard or protocol, including but not limited to global system of mobile communication (GSM), general packet radio service (GPRS), code division multiple access (CDMA), wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA), long term evolution (LTE), e-mail, short messaging service (SMS), etc.

[0037] The memory 502 can be used to store application programs and data. The application programs stored in the memory 502 includes executable codes. The application programs can be combined into modules having various functions. The processor 508 performs various function applications and data processing by running the application programs stored in the memory 502. The memory 502 can mainly include a program storage area and a data storage area. The program storage area can store an operating system, at least one application program required for a function (such as a voice playback function, an image playback function and etc.) and the like. The data storage area can store data (such as audio data, contacts and etc.) created according to the use of the terminal device 100. In addition, the memory 502 can include a high-speed random access memory, and can also include a non-volatile memory, such as at least one disk storage device and flash memory device, or include other volatile solid state memory devices.

[0038] The input unit 503 can be configured to receive incoming numbers, character information, or characteristic information (such as fingerprint) from a user, and generate a keyboard, mouse, joystick, optical or trackball signal input related to user settings and function control. Specifically, in a specific embodiment, the input unit 503 can include a touch-sensitive surface and other input devices. The touch-sensitive surface, also known as a touch screen 110 or touchpad, can collect a touch operation made by a user on or near the touch-sensitive surface (for example, an operation made by the user on the touch-sensitive surface or near the touch-sensitive surface by means of a finger, a touch pen or any other suitable object or accessory), and drive a corresponding coupling device according to a preset program. Optionally, the touch-sensitive surface can include two portions, i.e. a touch detection device and a touch controller. The touch detection device is configured to detect a touch position from the user and a signal caused by the touch operation, and sends the signal to the touch controller. The touch controller receives touch information from the touch detection device, converts the touch information into a coordinate of a touch point, and sends the coordinate to the processor 508. The touch controller also can receive a command sent from the processor 508 and execute the command.

[0039] The display unit 504 may be configured to display information input by or provided to the user, and various graphic user interfaces of the terminal device 100. These graphic user interfaces can consist of a graph, a text, an icon, a video, and any combination thereof. The display unit 504 can include a display panel, and optionally, the display panel can be configured in forms of a liquid crystal display (LCD), an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) and the like. Further, the touch-sensitive surface can overlay the display panel; when the touch-sensitive surface detects a touch operation on or near it, the touch operation is sent to the processor 508 to determine the type of the touch event, and then the processor 508 provides corresponding visual output on the display panel according to the type of the touch event. Although in Fig.8, the touch-sensitive surface and the display panel implement input and output functions in a form of two independent parts, but in some embodiments, the touch-sensitive surface and the display panel can be integrated to implement input and output functions. It could be understood that, the display 100 can include the input unit 503 and the display unit 504.

[0040] The terminal device 100 can also include at least one sensor 505, such as a light sensor, a motion sensor, and other sensors. Specifically, the light sensor may include an ambient light sensor and a proximity sensor. The ambient light sensor adjusts luminance of the display panel based on intensity of an ambient light. The proximity sensor can turn off the display panel and/or backlight when the terminal device 100 moves to an ear. As one of the motion sensors, a gravity sensor can detect acceleration in various directions (generally in there axes), and can detect the value and direction of gravity in a static state. The gravity sensor can be used for posture recognition (such as switch between landscape and portrait, posture calibration for a related game and a magnetometer) of a phone, and functions (such as a pedometer and a knock) related to vibration recognition. The terminal device 100 can also be provided with a gyroscope, a barometer, a hygrometer, a thermometer, an infrared sensor and other sensors, which will not be elaborated herein.

[0041] The audio circuit 506 can provide an audio interface between the user and the terminal device 100 by means of a loudspeaker and a microphone. The audio circuit 506 can transmit an electrical signal converted from the received audio data to the loudspeaker, and the loudspeaker converts the electrical signal into an audio signal to be output. The microphone converts an audio signal collected into an electrical signal, the audio circuit 506 receives the electrical signal and converts it into the audio data, and transmits the audio data to the processor 508. After processed by the processor 508, the audio data is sent to another terminal device via the RF circuit 501, or output to the memory 502 for further processing. The audio circuit 506 can further include an earphone socket and provide communication between a peripheral earphone and the terminal device 100.

[0042] WiFi is a short distance wireless transmission technology, and the terminal device 100 can help the user send and receive e-mails, browse websites and access streaming media by means of the WiFi module 507 which provides the user with wireless broadband access to the Internet. Although the WiFi module 507 is shown in Fig. 8, but it could be understood that the WiFi module 507 is not essential for the terminal device 100 and can be omitted according to needs in a scope without changing the gist of the present disclosure.

[0043] The processor 508 is a control center of the terminal device 100, is coupled to various parts of the terminal device 100 by means of a variety of interfaces and lines, and performs various functions of the terminal device 100 and data processing by running or executing the application programs stored in the memory 502 and by invoking the data stored in the memory 502, thereby monitoring the terminal device 100 overall. Optionally, the processor 508 can include one or more processing cores. Preferably, the processor 508 can integrate an application processor and a modem processor, in which the application processor mainly handles the operating system, the user interface and the application program, while the modem processor mainly deals with wireless communication. It could be understood that, the modem processor may also not be integrated in the processor 508.

[0044] The terminal device 100 further includes the power source 509 that supplies power to various components. Preferably, the power source 509 can be logically coupled to the processor 508 through a power management system, thereby achieving management of charging, discharging, and power consumption and other functions through the power management system. The power source 509 can further includes one or more direct current or alternated current power sources, a recharge system, a power fault detection circuit, a power adapter or inverter, a power state indicator, and any the like components.

[0045] Although not shown in Fig. 8, the terminal device 100 may further include a Bluetooth module, etc., which will not be detailed here. In specific embodiments, the above modules can be realized as individual entities or one or some entities through any combination. Specific embodiments of the above modules can refer to the method embodiment, which will not be detailed here.
