Xiaomi hits back on Oppo with its own & # 39; under-display & # 39; camera

A few hours after Oppo unveiled the first under-display camera in the world, Xiaomi returned with his own view of the new technology. Xiaomi President Lin Bin has placed one video to Weibo (later on posted again on Twitter) of the Xiaomi Mi 9 with a front camera that is completely hidden behind the screen of the phone. This means that the new version of the device does not need any notches, holes or even pop-up selfie cameras & # 39; s besides the OLED screen.

It is not entirely clear how the new Xiaomi technology works. The telephone conversations notes that Xiaomi has recently applied for a patent similar to similar functionality, which uses two alternately displayed sections to transmit light to the camera sensor.

Although the Xiaomi prototype appears to be functional, there is still no word about when the phone could come onto the market. In March the company published a similar Weibo teaser for the upcoming foldable phone, but two months later we still don't hear specific details about the device.
