This year we have seen different shapes and sizes of notches and motorized modules housing the front camera. But as is true for any other tech verticle, this camera arrangement will also undergo a change. Enter: an in-display camera! This might be the next best solution to grace a smartphone’s face.

Xiaomi and Oppo were the first ones to announce their initiation towards this tech. And as you already know, Oppo has given a glimpse of its prototype.

On the other hand, Xiaomi is oddly tight-lipped. However, a recent patent draws how Xiaomi in-display camera might pan out.

Xiaomi has allegedly acquired a new patent called “Display Structure and Electronic Equipment” from the US Trademark and Patent Office. While the patent dates back to May of 2019, the same was published on December 5.

Its implementation might take a layered approach as you see in the following image.

So, one may infer this as a Mi Mix phone’s launch teaser, since Xiaomi’s Mix series is known for its experimental DNA. Take the Mi Mix Alpha for example. But as it was launched just a few months back, a new Mix phone seems less likely. Let’s wait and watch.
