A major concern of companies is to take advantage of the largest possible surface area of the screens of your devices. For this they have tried various technologies such as the notch, the holes in the screens, the infamous pop-up cameras, the rotating cameras or the cameras under the screen.
Curiously, the latter option seems to be the one that works best and is that it allows you to take advantage of the entire front of the terminal without damaging the user experience and, above all, without affecting the design of the device. Now, when will we finally start seeing a phone with an under-screen camera on the market? Given how the topic is going, there is no doubt that it is still missing due to the massive arrival of these terminals in stores.
When will we start seeing cell phones with under-screen cameras?
ZTE Axon 20 is the first under-display camera phone
Just a few days ago, ZTE unveiled the first device with an under-screen camera. The ZTE Axon 20 5G it has just been officially launched in China on 10 September, even if there is no news of when it will arrive outside these borders. What about the rest of the brands?
Chinese brands seem to be the most interested in this type of technology. Although ZTE was the first company to officially present a phone with these features, the truth is that Xiaomi has already announced in August of this year. the chance to see its first phone with an under-screen camera in 2021.
Faced with this scenario, we have to take several things into account. The first is that ZTE Axon 5G is the first device with this kind of technology, so it's not perfect. The first media that have been able to test it show that there is a good balance between the quality of the screen and the quality of the front camera, although it is not the most optimal. This means that under-screen camera phones have a lot of wiggle room.
The second thing is that a major company like Xiaomi does not subscribe to this trend until well into 2021. In short, the first models will be out next year and their reviews - where any errors will be corrected - won't arrive until the year 2022. What do we mean by that? That it won't be until 2022 when the under-screen cameras are normalized and we will start seeing phones with this type of technology more frequently..
For all this and despite the talk of cell phones with cameras under the screen for several months, there is still a long way to go to see them massively. The first models will arrive in 2021 but there is no doubt that it won't be until 2022 when they become more popular. That said, if any of you really want to buy one of these devices, they'll still have to wait a little longer.
