Xiaomi will have a front-facing camera in an unusual place
In an effort to make the frame around the screen narrow and increase its area to the maximum, some manufacturers go to all sorts of tricks: cutouts, sliding mechanisms, complete rejection of the front camera. Xiaomi is not the first time experimenting with the location of photo modules, and a new patent reveals another idea of engineers. The company sees the need to use not one but two cameras for selfies and offers to install it at the bottom of the body, just under the screen. The logic is simple: the user will be less annoyed by the cutout if he does not see it.
Another scheme offers to spread the two cameras in the lower corners of the smartphone and thus reduce the size of the cutout.
It is unknown how serious the vendor plans to present such a device.
