After a long development phase, Xiaomi's under-display selfie camera seems to have reached market maturity. In a new video, we can now see the hidden front camera in action - in a Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra.

Already a year ago, we reported on the development of a hidden front camera in Xiaomi smartphones. Several manufacturers are already working on a solution to banish notches and small punched holes in the smartphone display. ZTE also wants to present a finished product for its technology in this area sometime in September 2020.

On Twitter, the tech expert Ice Universe posted a video in which we see two versions of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra. One model has a cutout for the selfie camera; the other display is free of any interruptions. According to the Tweet, this is official footage of the Chinese smartphone manufacturer. Mass production of Xiaomi's hidden front camera is scheduled to start in spring 2021.

The principle of hidden cameras in smartphones is not new. OnePlus showed us its Concept One, a mobile phone that does not show any visible cameras on the back either. Instead, the camera becomes visible as soon as the camera app is started.

For this purpose, manufacturers use so-called electrochromic glass, a technology that is also used by glass manufacturers for facades or car manufacturers for automatic dimming of the rear-view mirror. So the race for the first marketable telephone with an invisible camera remains exciting.
