Xiaomi foldable smartphone could comes with a pop up camera

Xiaomi has been working hard on folding smartphone prototypes filing patents that show off potential designs for folding devices coming in the future. A new Xiaomi folding smartphone design has turned up that ditches the thick bezels or notches on the screen featured on smartphones for sensors and cameras. Instead, this folding device uses a pop-up camera.

Xiaomi’s design is neither the first to fold nor the first to have a pop-up camera, but it’s interesting to see the two features combined in a single device. The design patent was filed with The Hague International Design System on September 25, 2020. The application was published on November 20, 2020. Like most other folding smartphones, it folds in half to create a smaller and more pocketable device.

In the renderings, the front screen is small at 4.6-inches and has thick bezels. When the phone is opened, it has a large screen

Beginning sometime next spring, Massachusetts Lottery players will be able to claim large prizes from their phones and have their winnings deposited directly into a bank account through an app that Lottery officials said will eliminate millions of miles of car travel and associated greenhouse gas emissions.

The Lottery plans to roll out the new functionality of its mobile app in two phases, starting with giving Lottery players the ability to scan a ticket into the app to find out if it is a winner. The second phase, which is expected to be available by early spring, would allow Lottery players to claim prizes between $601 and $5,000 through the app rather than going to a Lottery claims center. The money would be wired directly to a bank account on file after the Lottery withholds any unpaid child support or tax obligations.

  • Advocacy groups say QR technology is ‘dog’s breakfast’ of privacy concerns

Before Monday, businesses had the option of signing visitors in the old-fashioned way.

But recording the information on pen and paper proved too ineffective for the state’s contact tracers as the details were sometimes difficult to read and eventually had to
