The Era of under-display camera is here!
@XiaomiNigeria in one of their recent posts gave us a heads-up on their soon to launch under-display Camera smartphones. With devices now featuring notches in a bid to use the full view for display.
The question is, how do you get a full-screen display without the need for a slider, pop-up or notch camera?
Xiaomi in their post just like Oppo is exploring the possibility of hiding the front-facing camera under the display. When the selfie camera is activated, the display area over the camera lens becomes transparent in an instant, allowing light to enter. This could be the ultimate solution for a full-screen display coexisting with a front camera.
Another question is how could this be done?
According to Xiaomi, the selfie camera is hidden under the display, with a cleverly designed display-embedded camera combo; the transparent display doubles as the camera lens. By allowing more light into the lens, the under-display camera is able to produce perfect selfies, clearer and crisper than the pinhole camera solution when the camera is activated.
When the display is turned off, the front camera disappears and results in a black surface that is completely seamless.
This will retire the now trending notch design in smartphones.
What do you think about this under-display camera technology by Xiaomi?
