Recently, many Xiaomi phones got a network access. Among them, we can mention the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 with an under-screen camera, the Xiaomi CC 11, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 and many others. They are expected to hit the market in the near future.
Today, a Weibo tipster said that the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 model has a suffix K8. Also, previously, a Xiaomi phone codenamed Odin, which is the lord of the gods in Nordic mythology. We mean these two refer to the same phone and it’s expected to become another generation of magic.
According to the currently known information, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 will adopt the upgraded version of the Huaxing Optoelectronics under-screen solution shown last year. The hyperboloid AMOLED screen is expected to be around 6.67 inches. It should support a high refresh rate. The overall body is relatively sleek and beautiful. It also supports UWB and 120W wired +70W wireless fast charging combination.
This handset should come in the third quarter of this year. In addition, ZTE will also release under-screen camera phones in the next month. OPPO, VIVO and Samsung plan to launch new foldable phones in the third quarter of this year as well. Thus, as you can see, the competition in the foldable phones market and in the under-screen phones market will be fierce.
As for the off-screen camera technology, Lu Weibing said that Xiaomi’s third-generation under-screen camera technology solves two pain points in the field. One is whether the display in the hole area can be visually the same as other areas (pixel compensation). The second is the transmittance of the camera’s selfie and the color cast it causes. Though various manufacturers are going to bring their own models to the market, Xiaomi’s third-generation under-screen camera is currently the most advanced technology and it will become the best solution in the full-screen era.
