On November 16, 2021, a blogger revealed that Xiaomi’s new product called L1 is slotted to be launched in the second quarter of next year. The L1 series is expected to cater to ultra-high-end products,, which means that the devices will not only be packed with the latest high-end features but also fall on an expensive side of the pricing spectrum. The device is supposed to come equipped with off-screen camera technology, and the prototype of the same has revealed that it will have a better effect than the one located on the Mi MIX 4 and will have a higher positioning than Mi 12.
It was previously revealed that the L1 series could be a part of the highly sought-after Mi 12 series. A few other sources have revealed that the new L1 device with an under-screen camera technology could also be the rumored Mi 12 Pro or the Mi 12 Ultra.
The Mi MIX 4 that was released this year already features a similar under-the-screen camera technology. It has enabled the company to rearrange the pixels while also moving the light-blocking TFT circuit out of the CUP area. What it entails is that it has enabled the light to be filtered through the gaps between the pixels. However, Xiaomi still needs to expand the gap of pixels. This requires that the sub-pixels be reduced, but the RGB ratio of the same should remain the same. As for the camera on the Mi MIX 4, the camera calibrates the color temperature of the camera one by one so that it matches the screen where the sensor’s hardware is situated.
Now that the Mi MIX 4 already possesses the under-the-screen camera, the future generation of smartphones will be equipped with a better version of the camera. The same could be expected of Xiaomi’s upcoming ultra-high-end flagship device code-named L1.
