Xiaomi has received a patent for the “hidden” front camera for a long time, but only now it has begun to actively work on the application of technology in the mass production of smartphones. This was announced personally by Liu Weibin in an interview with users of the Weibo social network.
Xiaomi Vice President asked subscribers about which innovation they most want to see in the company's new smartphones. Many expressed the desire that smartphones use front-facing cameras hidden under their screens. It turned out that the Chinese manufacturer is closely involved in the implementation of this area.
The essence of the “hidden” front camera is that the camera is visible only when its mode is activated and the user is preparing to shoot, the rest of the time it is not visible and the user sees the picture on the device’s screen as if there was no camera at all.
