Journalists from the Chinese edition of MyDrivers found out that Xiaomi is preparing a smartphone with a periscope camera, like those of the Huawei P30 Pro and OPPO Reno 10x Zoom .
What is known
The manufacturer back in 2018 filed a patent application with the State Intellectual Property Office of China and now, at the beginning of this month, the documents were approved. The patent application describes the periscopic camera technology with one or two additional modules. Apparently, this camera will work on the same principle as its competitors.
It is not yet known which Xiaomi smartphone will be the first to receive such technology, but it can be assumed that it will be Mi Mix 4. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 top chip is attributed to the new product, as well as a display without openings and cutouts with a sub-screen selfie camera. Most likely, the announcement of the device will be held at the end of this year.
