Over the years, there has been a lot in the battle for supremacy over higher screen-to-body phones.
We have seen different manufacturing companies come up with different ways to creatively expand display size of smartphones without actually making the smartphone bigger.
We have seen Pop-up selfie cameras, sliders, flipping cameras, hole punch display, recently, the Infinity-O display showcased on the Samsung Galaxy A8s and further cemented with the Galaxy S10 series.
Now, imagine a full screen with no sign of a camera sensor at all, but still takes efficient selfies. Maybe the future isn’t so far off afterall.
Oppo seeks to revolutionize the use of full-screen camera smartphones for awesome selfies with its new prototype that features an under-display front camera.
The VP of Oppo, Brian Shen, shared a video of the working prototype on Weibo with the selfie camera installed under the screen. This new technology differs from the hole-punch displays we have been used to.
According to the video uploaded on their twitter handle, the camera sensor is located in the upper mid-section of the screen. The video also showcased how the camera is launched and how it takes sample pictures while blowing minds with its futuristic details.
Although, little is known about the device or its release into the market, still, it is a big step for Oppo. The VP also made a comment on the optical quality of the sensors, saying it is not up to normal front camera standards but much work is being put in place to ensure its perfection.
