After Xiaomi, ZTE and Samsung, now it's Google's turn to file a patent for it's own under display camera technology. It'll be a slightly different implementation than the others, with a secondary display. Samsung also has a similarly proposed solution, however, Google's tech is slightly different.


A patent image shows how Google plans to place the second screen directly opposite the camera sensor. There’s a prism or mirror is positioned between the sensor and the secondary display. When the selfie camera is in use, the prism rotates to let in light through a small, 2-3mm window. When not in use, the prism rotates to reflect the content displayed on the second screen onto the main display.

The sub-display also reportedly has three sensors on it, possibly to enable face unlock.
