Visionox, one of the biggest OLED manufacturers in China — they provide screens for Xiaomi’s Mi 10 and Mi Note 10 — is set to begin the mass production of in-display selfie cameras.
Back then Oppo, at MWC 2019, showcasing its in-display camera technology mentioned the hindrance is not putting the camera inside the display but rather the difference in brightness and color that it creates due to the diffraction from the protective glass.

Now Visionox affirms that the problem can be solved with organic and non-organic film materials allowing higher transparency. As the hardware is in its infancy, it still needs the software to work alongside it — Visionox says it has an algorithm that can fix brightness, viewing angle issues, color gamut, and also removes the glare that was seen in the prototype that OPPO showcased in 2019.
Xiaomi executive Lu Weibing, back in January said that the mass production of in-display selfie cameras was near to impossible then due to many technological restrictions. Weibing, more specifically stated that screens with 400 pixels per square inch considerably decrease the amount of light captured by the in-display cameras.
But now, it looks like Visionox may have its own solution to this, or it’s just carrying the production anyway to become the first in this race. Nonetheless, we are going to see the first commercially available in-display selfie camera soon.
