Smartphone manufacturers continue to seek methods to extend the working plane of the display. Interesting new idea is patented by the Chinese company Xiaomi.
As reported pigtou.com the idea of Xiaomi is based on the principle of retractable front camera. This will free the front panel from any cuts or holes.
What is known
As the patent describes, the new mechanism brings and hides the camera. But she is not hiding inside the case, and in the cell block on the rear panel. So the unit will have a slider design.
The patent describes two versions.
Xiaomi has found a new and original idea for cameras / pigtou.com
- In the first case, the unit the main camera is hidden in the upper part of the body.
- Another variant provides that the camera slides left or right.
Such construction looks a bit strange. If you use a design without motorized drive, this can reduce the cost of the mechanism itself and to increase its reliability.
So Xiaomi can make absolutely frameless even budget smartphones.
