Weibo/RedmiIt feels like 2019 was the year of the pop-up selfie camera, as OnePlus, Redmi, and Vivo were among the most admired brands offering this function. But this has become a rare sight in 2020 as punch-hole selfie cameras gain recognition, with the imminent Redmi K30 Pro one of the few gadgets to give the pop-up.Now, Redmi typical supervisor Lu Weibing has taken to Weibo to explain why pop-up selfie cameras are falling out of fashion.And it looks like technical challenges are in charge."The number of 5G cell phone components has greater tremendously. Taking Redmi K30 Pro for example, the number of accessories is up to 3885, which is a rise of 268% over the outdated era K20 Pro," the Redmi govt explained (via gadget translation), saying that this made things more tricky.com/i/blog/1600665528/aHR0cHM6Ly9jZG41Ny5hbmRyb2lkYXV0aG9yaXR5Lm5ldC93cC1jb250ZW50L3VwbG9hZHMvMjAxOS8wNy9SZWRtaS1LMjAtUHJvLXBvcC11cC1zZWxmaWUtY2FtZXJhLWFuZC1saWdodC04NDB4NDczLmpwZw%3D%3D">Editor's Pick
Another problem not discussed by Weibing is durability, as phones with pop-up selfie cameras are usually more complex to seal in opposition t water and mud. So it is not a shock to see manufacturers opt for waterdrop notches and punch-hole cutouts.
Nevertheless, I'm glad to see Xiaomi/Redmi offer as a minimum one phone with this option in 2020, making for a refreshing change from the ocean of punch-hole phones.com/i/blog/1600665528/aHR0cHM6Ly9jZG41Ny5hbmRyb2lkYXV0aG9yaXR5Lm5ldC93cC1jb250ZW50L3VwbG9hZHMvMjAyMC8wOS9YaWFvbWktUG9jby1YMy1ORkMtaGVsZC1pbi10aGUtaGFuZC1vdXRzaWRlLXRvLXNob3ctb2ZmLXRoZS1yZWFyLXNpZGUtMjAweDEzMC5qcGc%3D">
