Still keep moving forward For smartphones that want the screen to display as full as possible Whether changing the front camera to a Pop-Up or Punch Hole. Vivo has recently patented a front-facing camera with 4 lenses through the Chinese National Intellectual Property Office or CNIPA.
Overall, the new Vivo patent includes 3 different designs. In the first, Vivo placed the lenses in four camera holes in the corners of the display. The design is strongly reminiscent of the Amazon Fire Phone launched in 2014. At that time, the cameras should recognize the position of the smartphone in relation to the viewer.
In the second variant, another double camera hole was placed on the other side of the double camera hole – known, for example, from the Samsung Galaxy S10 +. The last design looks similar, but no modules with double camera holes are used here. Instead, Vivo simply put two of the camera holes close together.
The purpose of the four front camera sensors is not clear from the patent. Of course, you could install different lenses (including wide-angle and zoom), but whether the effort for selfie pictures would be justified is questionable. For example, only a very few would need a zoom lens on the front.
Different AR functions (augmented reality) would be more interesting, but the bottom line is all speculation. The truth will be revealed as soon as Vivo launches a corresponding model; if that will ever be the case. However, Vivo is known for experimenting with different concepts. Such a smartphone could well see the light of day in the coming year.
