Are you happy so much with the currently running custom ROM on your Redmi K20 a.k.a. Xiaomi Mi 9T? Wait, you might be one of those flashing maniacs experiencing front camera retraction issue. There might be also a custom ROM that doesn’t support automatic camera retraction feature.
Redmi K20 Pro and K20 (Mi 9T) are Xiaomi’s latest smartphone variants boasting a full-screen notch-less display. To compensate with such a massive innovation, the front camera is hidden inside the body of the phone.
Revealing and retracting back the front camera is easy. However, the case might be different if the device runs a custom ROM.
Luckily, a junior XDA member Dercubaton shares a nice little tweak to add automatic front camera retraction for the Redmi K20 (Mi 9T) and K20 Pro.
He made the tweak as a Magisk module for his Redmi K20 Pro. This tweak is so popular and a member known as Schnedi proved it work on his Mi 9T.
This tweak is a Magisk module. Rooting your device systemless-ly with Magisk is the main requirement.
