Although ZTE has already unveiled a smartphone with an under-display selfie camera, it could be a while before the tech goes mainstream. In the meanwhile, we will have to settle for notches, pinholes, flip-top snappers, and maybe even removable rear camera modules that double up as selfie shooters.
A patent filed by Oppo shows a smartphone with a removable camera module
The outlet reports that the camera module would have its own lithium-ion battery.
A removable module could take care of that problem in the interim. A modular design might also make it possible to upgrade just the camera instead of the whole phone.
