Seoul, October 27
Samsung is reportedly working on a foldable smartphone with a pop-up camera that would be the company’s first phone with this camera mechanism.
The smartphone maker filed the patent with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office).
It clearly describes a foldable phone featuring a pop-up mechanism inside one of the two halves of the device, reports SamMobile.
Some sketches depict a Galaxy Z Fold device with a pop-up camera that raises from the half of the phone that has the cover display.
Others reveal a foldable device that conceals its pop-up camera module inside the other half.
“Furthermore, some sketches reveal that the pop-up camera would replace the main rear-facing camera system,” the report said.
Samsung has also filed a patent for three foldable smartphone designs with cutouts for inner cameras.
All three of those have a cutout on the front display so that the cameras present inside can be used even when the phone is closed. IANS
