On November 30, 2020, Xiaomi filed a design patent with the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) for a smartphone with a retractable rotating camera module. The documentation was released today, May 14, 2021. At first glance, the smartphone appears to be a “Normal” camera device under the display: in fact, no hole or notch appears.

But of grace, how would this Xiaomi smartphone work? When a user wants to take a selfie photo, the rear sliding mechanism lifts up revealing the sensor. Here they stay three cameras: a larger central one and two smaller lateral ones. The moment we have to take a selfie, the photo module It will literally “flip” going to rotate. This way the sensors will move forward. On the contrary, we could take "normal" photos.
