Wanting to offer users a superior smartphone experience in terms of both hardware and design, Xiaomi has applied for a new patent that is believed to be for the Mi Mix 4. The patent filed under the name ‘Display Structure and Electronic Equipment’ refers to a front camera design hidden under the screen.
The display, which includes multiple pixels that can be controlled independently, has a component that compensates for incoming light. Nowadays, as smartphone displays grow, the Chinese brand’s patent can give users a truly endless display experience.
Xiaomi released a video showing the camera technology embedded in the screen last June. It is worth mentioning that OPPO has developed a similar technology. Because Xiaomi’s video was shared just a few hours after OPPO’s. The video showed a phone that looked like a notched Xiaomi Mi 9. The Chinese company, which has made significant progress in under-camera technology, is expected to integrate its new technology into Mi Mix 4, which will be introduced in the coming months.
