The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is currently working on an extraordinary camera, providing much better selfies. A patent now published describes a flip camera hidden invisibly under the smartphone’s display.
Xiaomi: Rotating selfie camera planned
If you go to Xiaomi, many future phones will be equipped with a special selfie camera. As a now published patent describes in no less than 32 pages, one plans to use a rotating camera, which You should not see in everyday life. Instead, it hides invisibly under the display.
Sub-display cameras themselves are no longer a revolution after the ZTE Axon 20, but there is still a lot of room for improvement in this area. In addition, Xiaomi hides under the display and can also be used as a rear camera. In this way, you can save a lens during production.
Xiaomi imagines the whole thing so that the camera is inserted at the rear in the normal state. Only when the user wants to take selfies does the lens automatically rotate 180 degrees. Ideally, self-images with a significantly higher resolution can be snapped. According to the manufacturer, there are no restrictions on the type of display so that you can use the described technology for LC and OLED displays.
Xiaomi’s invisible selfie camera just an idea
So far, Xiaomi’s plans for a rotating and invisible selfie camera are just an idea described in a patent. This does not necessarily mean that you will use such a camera soon.
With the Asus Zenfone 8 Flip, the release of a mobile phone is about to be released, which also uses a 180-degree rotating flip camera. However, the Asus solution is not hidden under the display.
