World’s first under-screen selfie camera by Oppo


Oppo under-screen selfie camera

The last couple of years of mobile phone design have been centered around how to increase the screen to body ratio to get as much screen as possible. That’s caused some intriguing approaches to squeezing in the front-facing camera. Apple, Google, LG, and others utilize a notch, but Samsung is using a hole-punch. And there is OnePlus, which has a motorized pop-up camera. Now, Oppo says it’s almost prepared to launch a phone with the camera concealed beneath the display. It will probably come with some tradeoffs; however, the visual appeal won’t be one of them.

Oppo, a company that’s done its share of anti-bezel experimentation with display screen notches and pop-up selfie cams, is the first to show an under-screen electronic camera to the general public at MWC Shanghai this week. Together with the showing, Oppo has exposed more details about how the technology works.

When the front-facing cam is not required, it’s unnoticeable, and the screen above it generally works– it even reacts to touch input. Oppo further declares the video camera’s presence will not jeopardize the display quality.

Oppo does acknowledge that putting a screen in front of a camera will inherently decrease photo image quality, with substantial issues like color, glare, and haze cast needing to be gotten rid of. The company says it’s established algorithms that are tuned to the hardware to resolve these issues and declares the quality is “on par with mainstream devices,” but we’ll have to see for ourselves what that means when the tech ships on a commercial phone.

Oppo states it will reveal a phone with an in-display front-facing cam in the future. That phone will most likely be specifically for the Chinese market; however, it’s just a matter of time before comparable technology appears on other phones. The company typically shows off core change at a trade convention in model kind before shipping it on an industrial item– the present Reno flagship phone with its periscope zoom lens is a great example– so there’s the factor to think such a phone will be coming soon.

Now, Oppo states it’s practically prepared to release a phone with the electronic camera concealed below the display. Oppo further declares the video camera’s presence will not jeopardize screen quality.

Oppo states it will announce a phone with an in-display front-facing camera soon.
