Xiaomi confirms its third-gen under display camera technology ready for mass production in 2021


Last year in June, Xiaomi first revealed its under-display camera technology for smartphones. After that, the company keeps on working on improving the technology. Today, Xiaomi has officially confirmed that the technology is ready for the mass-production next year.

Shou Zi Chew, President of Xiaomi International, officially tweets to confirm the news.

In the technology’s third-generation, Xiaomi says it has “significantly enhanced” the full-screen effect through a custom pixel arrangement and optimized camera algorithm to provide the same performance on smartphones as traditional front cameras. Xiaomi’s unique pixel arrangement in its third-generation under-display camera allows light to pass through the lens through gaps in the sub-pixels.

The company also claims it has increased the number of horizontal and vertical pixels than other solutions on the market, thereby achieving the same pixel density on display above the camera area as the portion below it. This means that the display area above the camera has the same brightness, gamut of colors, and precision as other screen areas.

Xiaomi has also developed a unique circuit design that allows more components to be concealed under the RGB sub-pixels, thus transmitting light to the camera under the lens. These changes lead to the camera below the display, providing the same image quality as standard front cameras found on today’s smartphones.

As for now, it seems like Xiaomi will debut the first smartphone using its third-gen under-display camera technology in 2021.
