Xiaomi has filed another patent at CNIPA (China National Intellectual Property Administration) with an interesting multi-camera setup in the pop-up mechanism. We have seen many smartphones with Pop-up style camera, so much so, that Vivo V17 Pro came with dual pop-up camera for selfie lovers. Now as per Xiaomi‘s latest patent design, these camera lens numbers seem to increase in future.
According to GSMArena, Xiaomi’s latest camera patent seems to accommodate a pop-up camera design with up to seven sensors. The design looks to carry camera lens both on the front and rear in the same pop-up mechanism.
Images supplied with the patent at CNIPA reveals three distinct varieties of the design starting with two dual-camera setups on the front and back. But that’s not it, it goes all the way up to a dual a five sensor array on the back, which means a total of seven sensors including front two sensors.
Meanwhile, in a different patent filing, Chinese smartphone manufacturer has patented a smartphone with a display that almost completely covers the smartphone body. The newer device could follow the same philosophy as the Mi Mix Alpha which is the first smartphone to have a surround display that covered most of the handset’s body, news portal GizmoChina reported on Monday.
