In recent years, smartphone companies have begun to think of more solutions that would allow them to build all-screen devices . Thus, the bezels have become thinner and thinner, while more and more notches are replaced by tiny holes. The selfie camera , however, continued to be a major problem with this project, what – somehow – had to disappear from the screen.
So we moved on to the pop-up camera , which pops out from the top edge of the smartphone when you need it; while we will soon see the launch of the world ‘s first smartphone with an under-screen camera . In very simple terms, the front camera is hidden under the screen and will only appear when needed.

A few hours ago Xiaomi also presented its solution for the under-screen camera . In a post on his blog, Xiaomi explains that with its technology the company has “significantly improved the quality of the full screen through a proprietary pixel arrangement and the optimization of the camera algorithm, allowing to achieve the same performance as the cameras. conventional “.
The new pixel arrangement used in Xiaomi’s latest solution allows the screen to filter light through the space between the sub-pixels, allowing each individual pixel to maintain a full RGB sub-pixel layout without sacrificing pixel density.
Compared to other solutions on the market, Xiaomi has doubled the number of horizontal and vertical pixels, obtaining the same pixel density across the entire panel. Therefore, the area that the camera covers shows the same brightness, color gamut and color accuracy as the rest of the display. All this, in combination with the proprietary optimization algorithm, allows the new camera under the display to offer a completely innovative photographic experience.
