    In recent years, we have seen a variety of ways in which the front camera is placed in phones, including pop-up selfie modules and rotating cameras; But to date, these types of cameras have not been used for curved phones. According to the news, Samsung has designed a rotating camera module for clamshell phones and has filed a patent with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). In 2019, the Korean giant introduced the Galaxy A80 smartphone with a triple rotating camera set that could also be used as a selfie camera. In its new patent, the company seeks to provide a plan for how a curved phone works and looks with a rotating camera.

    As you know, the cameras in smartphones are designed in such a way that the camera lens is placed in front of a subject that captures a photo or video of it. To take a photo or video of other scenes, of course, you have to change the direction of the smartphone. With the use of rotating cameras, there is no need to change the direction of the smartphone, and you can take photos from different views and angles by rotating the camera.

    According to the published images of this patent, the curved phone designed by Samsung consists of two displays and a hinged structure with the rotating camera module attached to the first display and placed on one of the folding edges. The rotating camera module can be located on the top right edge or in the middle of the right edge. This camera will be a 180-degree rotating model, so that a set of cameras can be used as the main and selfie camera.

    Interesting that the curved phone is described This patent will be equipped with a motion sensor that determines the status of the device. A sensor will also be used to determine the angle between the two main parts of the phone. As soon as the camera app is opened, these two sensors detect the status of the device, so the rotating camera can adjust its direction. In fact, the processor is connected to the first display as a motion sensor, and the angle sensor is also connected to it.

    The advantages of using such a design in curved phones are obvious because you only need to put a set of sensors for the main camera and selfie. For example, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is equipped with two selfie modules, and three cameras on the back, and reducing the number of cameras will reduce the cost of this product. In addition, this style of design will create an empty space that can be used to increase the volume of the battery or put other components in the device.

    Samsung's patent first on December 7, 2020 (December 7, 2016) ) Has been registered and published on Thursday, June 17 of this year (June 27, 1400). Several other smartphone makers are currently working on similar designs, as several patents for rotating cameras have been released by Xiaomi.

    The fact is that curved phones are now a collection of parts. They are very advanced and therefore companies constantly recommend careful maintenance of these devices to users. Now, if such a module is added to curved phones, the amount of care required by these phones will be even more. Which, of course, depends on the operation of this patent, and it is not yet possible to talk about the possibility of its realization and mass production in the future.
