In February 2020, Xiaomi filed a patent with the World Intellectual Property Organization, which details how the company plans to integrate a rotating camera internally into one of its phones.
According to the website “Gizmuchina”, the exciting patented Xiaomi phone features a front camera under the screen, which Xiaomi has mastered in developing and is expected to launch the first phone with an under-screen camera this year.
However, the new patent refers to a newer technology, whereby the camera placed under the screen can rotate to be used as a rear and front camera at the same time.
The front camera of the phone will come on the back of the screen, as it comes with a triple-lens rear camera, and one of the rear cameras can be rotated to turn into a front camera to take selfies and videos, and the other lenses remain in place.
When the front camera is activated, the camera will rotate internally, after which the display portion around the camera module will be disabled to allow sufficient ambient light to enter.
In addition, the patent stated that the phone will include a laser autofocus system capable of focusing quickly and accurately even in poor lighting conditions.
