Xiaomi will soon release the under-screen camera technology
Xiaomi is quite innovative and has been developing new technologies. According to the manufacturer, the third-generation under-screen camera technology will be the best solution for under-screen camera approaches. It comes with perfect display and selfie effects. And it has truly entered the stage of mass production.
Xiaomi’s third-generation off-screen camera technology can make all physical pixels light up 100%, solving the pain points of the previous two generations of off-screen camera technology. The former adopts a new self-developed pixel arrangement. This allows the screen to pass light through the sub-pixel gap area without sacrificing pixel density. There are twice more horizontal/vertical pixels in the display area. And the selfie imaging is comparable to traditional front-facing cameras.
At the same time, one of the well-known Weibo bloggers posted a video showing how it works. From the video, we can see that Xiaomi’s third-generation under-screen camera technology prototype has no openings on the front. So the front screen is full of immersion, which can give users a better look and feel. According to the blogger, the screen integration of Xiaomi’s third-generation under-screen camera technology prototype in daily use scenarios is close to that of conventional smartphones. At the same time, he says that Xiaomi is likely to release a new proactive camera under the screen in Q1 next year. It is said that this solution will also be ‘the most mature and energy-producing solution in the industry’.
