Xiaomi patents a phone having an In-display selfie camera


In just two years, the appearances related to smartphones have changed to a huge extent. The thick bezels have been substituted with thin ones, while the bezels on top have been replaced with a number of different notches or indeed punch holes in certain cases. Other manufacturers have been a bit more ambitious, as they have adopted a slider design or the use of pop-up selfie cameras. Now though, the next step it seems is for the manufacturers is an In-display camera. With a bunch of manufacturers already patenting their very own take on this possibly new and upcoming innovation, Xiaomi is the latest amongst the bunch to do so.

From the Xiaomi patent has appeared a diagram online which goes on to show a device featuring with an In-display selfie camera. It was all the way back in November of last year that the patent was applied for, and it goes to show that there is a camera behind the screen along with a light sensor. There is a translation of the patent and while it isn’t too clear, it tells us that there is a secondary display which is placed under the main display of the device. The light sensor works with both screens in a manner in which it can become visible at required times and invisible when not in use. It is all a tad harder to explain considering the fact that the description found is not actually in English.

The rumors surrounding In-display camera smartphones say that the new trend is possibly for the second half of the year, or perhaps the next year at the latest. Just a few weeks ago, Oppo was in the news, as there came reports that the Chinese company will showcase a phone that comes with an In-display camera later in the year.
