Previously, Xiaomi revealed earlier this week that she is working on a new solution for selfie cameras that will remove pop-up mechanisms and ugly holes that hide the sensor below the display. In normal use it is invisible, but when the user activates the camera, it becomes transparent, allowing light to enter.
Technology can be seen in action in the video above (if you can’t see it may need to turn off your ad blocking).
It is possible that under-average camera technology can already be seen in the upcoming Mi Mix 4, which is expected in October. Mi Mix 3 (and Mi Mix 3 5G) is still the only Xiaomi phone that has gone all the way across the screen and tucked its double selfie cameras behind the sliding display mechanism.
“Including technologies that have been developed in-house, the all-new custom-made display has a small, transparent display that is made with a special low-reflectance glass with high throughput. If it’s not in camera mode, the transparent screen works as normal, allowing your content to be displayed in full, “says Xiang Wang, Senior Vice President on Facebook.
“The front 20MP camera is hidden beneath the display, with a smart design combos with a built-in camera – the transparent display doubles as the camera lens. perfect selfies, brighter and sharper than pinhole camera solutions when the camera is activated When the display is off, the front camera disappears and results in a black surface that is completely trouble free, ”he continues.
The phone said that Mi Mix 4 has recently hit subtitles like the Xiaomi smartphone codenamed Hercules, which was said to feature the Snapdragon 855, NFC, triple lens rear camera, one selfie camera, wireless charging and an in-fingerprint sensor.
The company has since announced Redmi K20 Pro in China, which will come to the UK and Europe next week as Mi 9T, and this phone seems to be in line with the specification in all cases except wireless charging.
