So recently tech company Xiaomi seems to have some big plans on bringing some innovative features to the smartphone market. The tech giant has officially released the Xiaomi CC9 Pro or in other terms the Xiaomi Mi Note 10. Even though this smartphone is not exactly the first smartphone to utilize a Penta-camera setup, it is the first to have a 108MP main sensor in a Penta-camera setup.
Also it is the first 108MP phone to go into mass production. There was a new patent document from CNIPA and according to it the company is developing a new Xiaomi foldable smartphone. The patent reveals that the Xiaomi foldable smartphone not only uses a pop-up camera setup, but it also has a Penta-rear camera design.
The five-rear cameras are on the op-up module. With a careful analysis of the images, when this smartphone is made and developed, the left side seems it will be thicker than the right. This is because that is the side that hosts the pop-up camera and probably the battery as well. From what I can tell the folding of this smartphone is along a single hinge. There is no indication currently that this smartphone can fold to either side.
However please do remember that this is only a patent and it may never be released. However, it is good to know that major OEMs are doing all they can to improve what we currently have in the smartphone industry.
