    Highlights of the Story

    • Xiaomi is all set to start releasing smartphones with under-display cameras from next year
    • ZTE is expected to introduce an under-display camera phone next Tuesday, September 1
    • Both Xiaomi and Oppo announced the technology last year

    Looks like Xiaomi’s third generation under-display camera technology is going to take the market by storm when it lands. However, it is important to understand the technology first.

    Xiaomi’s Under-Display Camera Tech: What Is It?

    An under-display camera is quite literally what it sounds like. It refers to a camera that will no longer require a notch.

    However, Xiaomi had released a video of a prototype of MI 9 having an under-display camera. The video was released on Twitter in June last year by Xiaomi’s director of product management, Donovan Sung.

    The tweet from Donovan read, “Another video from #Xiaomi President Bin Lin, showing off a very exciting phone prototype… Here’s our #Mi9 with under-display camera, full-screen display and great selfie experience. No holes, no pop-ups, no notch… What does everyone think?”

    This indeed was a very big tease of what was about to come. Selfie cameras have been constantly evolving in recent years. From waterdrop notches to punch-holes and now the under-display design, a lot will change.

    After Xiaomi’s release of the concept last year, we expected the Mi Mix 4 to come with the latest camera technology. However, the company faced some issues earlier this year. This might delay the commercial launch of the new camera technology. In April of this year, certain pieces of information showed up online. Renders clearly show the ultimate design for the upcoming phones planned by the company.

Furthermore, the Vivo Apex 2020 is expected to come with a variety of new features. The phone is expected to have a 16-megapixel under-display camera. We can also expect to see a  6.45-inch ultra-curved display that bends at 120 degrees on both sides. This in turn will offer ultra narrow bezels.

    Oppo

    Oppo showcased its futuristic camera tech along with Xiaomi last year as well. However, Oppo decided to take it a step further by revealing a few other features. The prototype Oppo showed was also button-less and had no ports or camera bumps. Although there were certain flaws to it, we can expect to see a working phone anytime soon.

    With multiple brands working on this latest camera tech, Xiaomi may not be the first one to come up with it. However, it will definitely be a solution to the notch design on Redmi phones, further providing users with a notch-less design. In fact, the first phone to have an under-display camera is the ZTE Axon 20 5G which is all set to be released on September 1.
