Upcoming Xiaomi Smartphones To Feature An In Display Camera
Xiaomi is a renowned brand in the smartphone industry. The company is known to offer multiple devices at every range from entry-level to premium grade flagships. The Chinese OEM has managed to incorporate the latest trends relatively quick with devices such as the Redmi K20 series with its popup camera. Now, Xiaomi is reportedly planning on releasing smartphones with an in-display punch hole selfie camera.
Xiaomi has jumped on many of the trending bandwagons of the year like using in display fingerprint scanner and full body display. However, no punch hole selfie camera has yet been seen from the company. Back in February, Xiaomi was reported to have filed patents for a smartphone with a punch hole camera in different variations. The fresh report now also offers three different form factor of the upcoming Xiaomi device. According to the source, the smartphone is currently patented with 3 different models, namely A, B and C for now.
Model A features a wide punch hole display which houses all of the fundamental front sensors and selfie camera on the top left of the display. On the other hand, Model B features a similar anymore noticeable setup at the top centre. Model C is rather unique with a rather unfamiliar selfie camera and sensor setup spreading from the top centre to the flanking sides. Notably, each variation has a dual camera sensors while Model A’s punch hole recess is slightly higher than the other two. Furthermore, it is also unknown which sensors is housed but the patents mention ‘structured light’ so 3D face sensors might be planned.
Punch hole display is one of the solutions to offer a lesser intrusive full front display viewing experience. The camera setup style is popular amongst Samsung’s Galaxy lineup which was one of the first to introduce the feature. Unfortunately, apart from the design, finer details such as specification for the smartphone are still unknown. It is expected that more information will be available in the arriving weeks.
