Xiaomi Senior Vice President Wang Xiang revealed that the company is working on technology that would allow for an under-display selfie smartphone camera. Xiang suggests the technology “could be the ultimate solution for a Full Screen Display coexisting with a front camera!”
How do you get a Full Screen Display without the need for a slider or pop-up camera? Xiaomi is currently exploring the possibility of hiding the front-facing camera under the display. When the selfie camera is activated, the display area over the camera lens becomes transparent in an instant, allowing light to enter. This could be the ultimate solution for a Full Screen Display coexisting with a front camera.
