As an alternative to the Under-Display Camera technology , Xiaomi has registered a new patent that could undoubtedly make way for a large part of the smartphones to come. On this occasion, the firm surprised us by integrating the selfie camera into the terminal's own smartphone .
As they tell us from LetsGoDigital , Xiaomi has registered a new patent detailing the procedure carried out to integrate a tiny selfie camera in the upper frame that covers the edges of the screen.
In this way, without having to resort to the expensive Under-Display Camera technology , the next Xiaomi smartphones could offer an “all-screen” design, also incorporating a better quality camera than the one that would be offered by the one located below the screen.
In order to integrate a camera on the edge or bezel of the terminal itself, Xiaomi has chosen to use various transparent components made of optical fibers so that the upper edge of the terminal is resistant but at the same time allows the passage of light to the photographic sensor. .
In short, a new yet unexploited technology that we are convinced that we will see very briefly in a new terminal , be it from Xiaomi, Redmi, POCO or any other brand that makes use of the technology patented by Xiaomi.
