Xiaomi is developing a smartphone with a moving camera

Beijing Xiaomi Mobile Software in October 2019 filed a patent with the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) for a smartphone with an unusual camera. At the end of July, the patent was approved and published in the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) database, and LetsGoDigital, based on the documentation, created renders of the device.

The main feature of such a Xiaomi smartphone is the camera. She has only two modules, but they can move and have a small viewing angle. With this camera, you can take high-quality wide-angle shots without distortion.

In patent images, the cameras are positioned horizontally, but the documentation says they can be positioned vertically as well.

So far, this is just a patent, so it is not known whether Xiaomi will release a smartphone with such a camera.
