From paper to actual execution goes a long way. However, manufacturers like Xiaomi do not fail to register patents that may in the future turn out to be solutions for some of their smartphones or just idals that are just paper.
The latest patent published by Xiaomi, and discovered by LetsGoDigital, shows a return to the past with a small twist. This is because it is a smartphone with a pop-up camera, with the difference that it is rotating
Smartphone with rotating pop-up camera patented by Xiaomi
Although it may appear in the images, this idea from Xiaomi is not the same as what we have seen in products launched to the market. We talk about equipment like Samsung Galaxy A80 or even the Asus ZenFone 7 Pro that we had the opportunity to test.
The novelty of this patent is that we have a pop-up system that makes the cameras appear in the upper area of the equipment. And then, that same system performs the rotation effect that immediately makes them front cameras.
This same process is shown in detail in the schemes put in place by the source. “An action motor is used to move the camera upwards, after which it can rotate on its axis”, it reads.
Like the rotating solutions already on the market, although with different execution, this patent has a very clear purpose. The idea will be to offer the same quality when using the rear or front cameras.
Like any patent, you should keep in mind that it may never see the light of day on the market. However, it gives us an idea of solutions that we can see in the future in branded equipment.
Bearing in mind that I have already tested a device like the Asus ZenFone 7 Pro, this turns out to be a more interesting and viable solution. Something like this Xiaomi patent just seems to complicate that process, taking into account that the purpose is the same.
