On Wednesday, renowned Chinese display manufacturer Tianma Microelectronics announced that it has signed an agreement with Xiaomi to set up a laboratory to develop new displays. The result of this collaboration should be the emergence of new light and thin panels that display high-quality images with low power consumption.
Xiaomi wants to create its own displays
It is assumed that the focus will primarily be on the development of flexible OLED displays, which will find their application in flagship devices. The lab will work directly with the industry chain, from mining to refining, to enhance the company’s research and development capabilities. This will shorten the development cycle for new technologies and accelerate the advancement of new products into mass production.
The executive vice president of Tianma Microelectronics also said the lab will work on more than just smartphone panels. The laboratory will begin to develop displays for other electronics, but he did not give specifics in terms of what gadgets they will be created for.
The upcoming Xiaomi 12 showed up on high-quality renders
The launch of the flagship Xiaomi 12 smartphones will take place by the end of this month. Today, a reputable insider known as OnLeaks shared renders of the base Xiaomi 12; based on CAD drawings of the device.
The renders show a fairly standard design. The main camera unit, which combines the lenses of three sensors and a dual LED flash, is made in the form of a small rectangle located in the upper left corner. According to leaks, the main sensor will boast a resolution of 50 megapixels.
As for the screen, Xiaomi 12 will receive a 6.2-inch display, which is rather small by modern standards. Recall that the Xiaomi Mi 11 presented at the end of last year has a 6.81-inch panel. The screen of the smartphone will receive a Full HD + resolution; and its left and right sides will have a curvature, like the previous model.
Also, the Xiaomi 12 has been certified with 67W fast charging. In addition, we expect it to boast a 4500mAh battery. The Xiaomi 12 Pro will come with a 5000mAh battery with support for 100W charging.
