[Review] Mi 9T/Pro: How pop-up camera works

Hello Mi Fans,
It's been a while since the launch of the Mi 9T/Pro, yet good to know how the pop-up camera works. Mi 9T/Pro comes with an Aura Prime Design and new concepts, the pop-up camera along with AI triple rear camera being the main highlight of it. Introduced a unique way that notification light glows when the camera pops out or pops in. The pop-up camera also acts as a notification LED and can be viewed on the top side of the pop-up camera. But have you ever thought about how a pop-up camera works? Well, we are going to discuss the same.

What is a pop-up camera?
The pop-up camera is a mechanism that works with a spiral stepper motor. That makes the camera module pop in and pop out right after when the front camera is switched from the camera app. This technology helped to achieve the bezel-less display of the 9T/Pro.

How does it work?
Each action will happen in a fraction of seconds from the moment we turn on the pop-up camera.  At first, a tiny motor will make a spiral designed small rod to rotate were connected to helically shaped material which is like connecting shaft between the motor mechanism to the front camera module,  Right when this connecting rod moves it constitutes the frictional force on the other side it pushes the spring according to the action required there the energy force is created then the camera module is pushed out and pulled back when the front camera is to be turned off.

What is unique about the Mi 9T/Pro pop-up camera?
Notification light
The LED light glows around the camera module whenever it pop-ups the camera and it's known as Camera Edge lightning System(CELS). Don’t you think this is cool? It also works as a notification light at the top of the device, making sure that we don't miss out on any of the notifications when we are away from the device as it's bright enough to catch up our eyes. Two different LED lights are there based on the color variant Blue light for the Glacier blue variant and Red Light for the Flame Red and Carbon Black variant.

Drop protection
Are you the one who often drops his/her phone knowingly or unknowingly? Does this mean you must be worried thinking what will happen to the popup camera if it slips out of hand while clicking a picture? Don't worry, the Mi 9T/Pro comes with a drop protection system to counter the damage by retracting the pop camera instantly. This is triggered by the Gyroscope and accelerometer sensor as this helps to sense the abrupt drop of the device from any of the orientations.

A Sapphire glass lens cover is used to counteract the scratches. Sapphire glass is robust enough to withstand scratches. The magnetic switch helps to revoke the camera back which impedes accidental damage to the pop-up camera when it's pressed intentionally or unknowingly by someone. Pop-up camera is built to last 300,000+ times with pop-in-out cycles that go around and around to withstand regular usage.

Hope this thread was informative, catch you soon with another topic.
