Title: AUTOMATICALLY POP-UP CAMERA DEVICE AND TERMINAL
Abstract:
Provided are an automatically pop-up camera device and terminal, the device comprising: a camera (11), a first elastic component (12), a rotating component (13), a slide rail switch (14), and a second elastic component (15). The camera (11) is respectively connected to one end of the first elastic component (12) and to a body (10) of a terminal. The camera (11) is provided with a connection groove (111) at a side surface thereof. The other end of the first elastic component (12) is connected to the body (10). When the slide rail switch (14) is shifted downwards, the slide rail switch (14) drives the rotating component (13) to rotate, so as to separate the rotating component (13) from the connection groove (111). The first elastic component (12) therefore ejects the camera (11). After the camera (11) is ejected, the connection groove (111) can engage with the rotating component (13) via pressing the camera (11) downwards to compress the first elastic component (12). The rotating component (13) drives the slide rail switch (14) to rotate, so as to restore the slide rail switch (14). The slide rail switch (14) is connected to the body (10) via the second elastic component (15). After the slide rail switch (14) is restored, the second elastic component (15) fixes the slide rail switch (14) in place. The device can achieve an automatic ejection and restoration of the camera (11), enabling the camera (11) to be accommodated in a casing to prevent the camera (11) from being damaged.
