Vivo smartphone with a flying camera drone

For the past few years, manufacturers have been working to erase the camera notch on smartphone screens by adopting motorized pop-up cameras. Some businesses are testing in-display cameras, while others pursue more extreme options, such as Vivo’s recently disclosed patent for a smartphone with a camera drone. The patent for Vivo Mobile Communication, titled “Electronic device,” was filed with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) in December 2020.

A graphic in the file shows a little compartment on the top side of the smartphone where the detachable camera may be slipped in and out. This camera has four rotors to bring it up in the air, a battery compartment for solo flying, and a dual-camera system with one sensor recording film above and one sensor recording film below.

According to the patent, the camera system inside the smartphone and the mounting bracket can detach from the housing.

Many infrared sensors are mounted on the camera module’s edges to determine the distance to other objects and avoid collisions. The flying camera, according to the patent, may be operated using the smartphone to which it is connected, and it is also expected to allow air gestures.

Vivo is still refining its initial concepts. Even if the company created a product with this technology, it could incorporate a variety of modifications or enhancements that are too early to predict or guess about.
