South Koren company Samsung and another smartphone maker Oppo are also working on the in-display camera technology. But Xiaomi first teased its plans for in-display cameras a few months ago on Twitter – this followed shortly after Oppo announced its plans for similar technology.
The patent was granted on 30th September by the CNIPA (China National Intellectual Property Administration) and shows designs for a smartphone with dual cameras under the display.
This in-display camera technology is gaining a lot of attention from the smartphone makers and there would no longer be a need for smartphone makers to design notches, hole punches, or pop-up modules to maximize screen-to-body ratio.
This in-display camera technology works through a transparent display, but phone makers are trying to figure out how to maximize camera quality since the image is slightly affected by the obtrusion of the display panel. The technology is still pre-mature, and we expect to start seeing in-display cameras in middle and lower range smartphones before they appear on higher-end flagships.
