Xiaomi’s under display camera technology might be the new era of smartphones. The idea is quite seductive and striking, the display frames could be squeezed to the maximum and the camera would not be an element that determines both the display of the interface elements. This kind of under display camera technology would allow to experience an “all screen” form of a mobile phone.
How under display camera technology deals with the issue of pixel density?
Xiaomi has today shown what it claims to be its third generation of under display camera technology, according to the brand. Xiaomi has done it by showing a working prototype again, as well as a series of details.
According to the manufacturer, the main improvement of this new generation is that the pixel density in the area in which the camera is located is no longer sacrificed, something from which the first two generations suffered (even being half that of the rest of panel). Something that the vice president of the company commented, explaining that for that reason the technology would still need some time.
They detail that the new pixel arrangement (self-developed) allows “the screen to let light pass through the sub-pixel separation area”, thereby ensuring that each individual pixel maintains a complete RGB sub-pixel arrangement without sacrifice their density. Thus, doubling the number of horizontal and vertical pixels, the density would be maintained above the camera with respect to the rest of the panel.

The under display camera technology almost manages to maintain the level of detail, color and brightness in the area above the camera than in the rest of the OLED screen. In addition, as they explained that they have worked on their own algorithm for this camera, which is capable of giving the same image quality as a traditional camera.
This will have to be seen, of course, because what we have not seen in detail yet is the comparison of the same selfie with this technology and with a normal camera, in fact we have not seen a photo with this technology in detail beyond what we see in videos. In this case, the video that Lei Jun has shared shows a prototype very similar to the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, with which he compares it.
When will this be ready and will we see it on a mobile? According to the CEO of the company, this technology is ready for mass production and we would see it in smartphones next year. It’s obvious that we will talk a lot about Xiaomi under display camera.
