If Asus claimed that the mechanized camera system on its newly launched Asus 6z, thereā€™s news leaks now that Xiaomi might be on its way to launching its own smartphone that boasts of a very similar camera arrangement.

The leak has come through a popular Twitter handle Ice Universe and according to this leak, the device that will sport the flip camera module will be the Meitu phone. Meitu is a smartphone brand that Xiaomi had taken over last year and possibly the phone with this camera feature is being released under this brand. There is just an image to go by that shows the top rear portion of a phone with the camera module in a tilted manner. It has three lenses and a flash; it can be assumed that this module can be lifted up to be used as the front camera for taking selfies. It can double as the mechanism to unlock the phone using facial ID. Keeping with the current trend you may not be off mark by much if you predicted that the primary sensor there would be 48MP.

However, what has to be considered is if the offering, as and when launched by Xiaomi, will be a high-end phone or a mid or budget segment phone only. The other deduction you can safely make is that the phone will have a full display screen with no hole or notch since there is no need to provide for the front camera. The rear panel does not seem to have the fingerprint scanner. It could be assumed that the display will have an under-display fingerprint scanner.    

There is a rumour that this phone may be called the Xiaomi Mi CC9 and the processor to be fitted on this phone will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730SoC. All these need to be taken with certain circumspection only since none have come from official sources.
