In some ways, that age-old notch that sometimes takes way too much space from our phones’ display is like COVID-19: we all want it to disappear for good. That notch is like an uninvited guest at a party who knows how to organize the audio gear: we don’t want him there, but we are craving for what he can do.
Xiaomi, a Chinese brand that builds high-quality smartphones and one that has grown tremendously in recent years, promises to solve the problem once and for all by bringing under-display front cameras for its future gadgets.
Scheduled for 2021
On Mi’s blog, we find the following statement that leaves no room for interpretation:
Beijing, CHINA, August 28 – Xiaomi announced that it will officially kick-start mass production of smartphones equipped with the 3rd Generation Under-Display Camera next year. This marks Xiaomi’s latest strategic step towards the high-end smartphone segment bolstered by the company’s continuous technological innovation.
There you have it, crystal clear: in 2021, smartphones equipped with that annoying notch that we all know will become obsolete thanks to one of the most successful phone manufacturers in the present. The reliable leaker Ice Universe also grants us some compelling photos of how the future phones will look like:
