Here's why Xiaomi thinks good under-screen cameras are incredible for now

"Simply put, it's the contradiction among the screen's PPI [pixels per square inch – ed] and transmittance," the Xiaomi government said, per a machine-translated edition of his post. "The present screen PPI is set 400, and (when) the PPI is at this level, the sunshine transmittance in the camera is awfully low, which seriously impacts the photo effect. "


In other words, it feels like all the pixels on contemporary QHD+ and FHD+ panels are considerably decreasing the quantity of light that gets to the under-screen camera. That means we could likely expect dark effects when using this camera at the side of a pixel-dense screen.

"Therefore, with existing technical features, it is inconceivable find a high-quality solution that takes under consideration both display consequences and camera effects," Weibing explains, adding that the technology is "still far from attaining mass construction. "


This doesn't necessarily mean we won't see a commercially accessible phone with an under-screen camera, but it suggests that it won't come from Xiaomi.arcanetechs.com/i/blog/1600665638/aHR0cHM6Ly9jZG41Ny5hbmRyb2lkYXV0aG9yaXR5Lm5ldC93cC1jb250ZW50L3VwbG9hZHMvMjAyMC8wOS9YaWFvbWktUG9jby1YMy1ORkMtaGVsZC1pbi10aGUtaGFuZC1vdXRzaWRlLXRvLXNob3ctb2ZmLXRoZS1yZWFyLXNpZGUtMjAweDEzMC5qcGc%3D">
