Hey there, here is another phone with under display camera. This below video was first posted by Xiaomi President Lin Bin who demonstrated Xiaomi’s progress on the in-display camera technology.
The prototype with a notch less design is shown next to the original Mi 9 which has a teardrop notch. And the new phone owning no cutouts for the camera technology.
Only a short time ago after Oppo teased the world’s first under-display camera technology, Xiaomi has now published its own take on the technology by demonstrating a Mi 9-based model.

The video was first posted by Xiaomi President Lin Bin who took to Weibo to illustrate Xiaomi’s development on the in-display camera technology. The model with a notch less design is given adjacent to the original Mi 9 which came with a teardrop notch with the new phone having no cutouts for the camera technology.
Alternatively, when the user opens up the camera and switches to selfie mode, the viewfinder shows the preview of the person in real time though we can make no judgments on the quality of the sensor.
The implementation appears to be reliable as it shows the person who’s interacting with the phone as well as the individual who’s recording the footage.
Xiaomi also announced that it used cathode and anode panels on the screen to make it transparent when the front camera is used. It also seems that Xiaomi had filed for a patent on its in-display camera technology back in November 2018.
We’re yet to hear a word when this technology will be embedded on a user smartphone. First today, Oppo also harassed a notch less phone of its own with a front-facing camera embedded under the display.
Oppo VP Brian Shen said “At this stage, it’s difficult for under-display cameras to match the corresponding results as normal cameras, there’s bound to be some loss in optical quality. But, no new technology shifts to perfection right away”.
Last week, Xiaomi also bothered an all-screen notch less design on the Mi 9T. Does that mean, the company is ready to mass produce phones with the latest in-display camera technology? We hope to find out soon.
