There is a strong possibility that a smartphone with a pop-up camera, as per indications received from Wang Teng Thomas, the product director for the company. Xiaomi had applied for a pop-up selfie camera patent in the year 2015. Keeping up with the competition from Vivo and Oppo who already have launched pop-up selfie camera phones, Xiaomi phone is seemingly in the pipeline. There is a high probability that Poco F2 will have the pop-up selfie camera. This will also help Xiaomi in gauging the reaction and need for pop-up selfie camera phone users about their requirement.
Xiaomi is working on a design for removing the notch design in which the selfie shooter is housed inside the notch, giving way to pop-up design. Though it has not caught fancy with other manufacturers and that is the reason Xiaomi is still wary of its acceptance in the market if launched. But its competitor, Vivo, has launched another phone in February based on the concept of pop-up selfie camera. Xiaomi is contemplating and working vigorously on launching pop-up, by most probability in Poco F2, but if not accepted in the market, it will not work on this feature.
