Xiaomi makes the first smartphone with a removable camera



A new patent is being discussed online, which was registered by Xiaomi in the World Intellectual Property Organization.

Judging by the description of the patent and sketches, we are talking about a smartphone with a camera that can be detached from its seat on the back. It also says that modules with different lenses can be installed on this footprint.

In normal mode, the camera is in place and is used to take photos and videos. If users want to take a selfie and watch the process on the screen or chat with someone via video call, then this module can be disconnected, deployed and fixed on the top panel of the smartphone.

The details of the design are not specified in the patent, but it can be assumed that magnetic connections will be used for this. In addition, the camera unit must include a wireless communication module.

It is believed that such a design will allow to abandon the embedded sub-screen camera, as well as not to place it under the display surface.

It is not yet clear whether such a solution will appear in a commercial smartphone.
