Oppo finally unveils the world’s first under-screen selfie camera. Brands were earlier fighting for minimum bezzel, minimum notch displays like Vivo provided pop-up camera, Asus came up with rotating camera(not the first one to do so).
Oppo always proved itself to provide some great piece of tech to the world before anybody else does that. For example, Oppo was the first to give the idea of a rotating-camera with their Oppo N1 smartphone, then some sort of sliding technique with their Oppo Reno.
And Oppo is among the first one to implement the under-screen selfie camera.
Official twitter handle of @oppoindia just tweeted a demo video of the under-screen selfie camera with a caption “OPPO’s brand new solution for full-screen display – Under-screen Camera (USC) has just been unveiled“
Oppo says that they are using a custom transparent material that works with a redesigned pixel structure so that light can get through to the camera. The sensor itself is said to be larger than other selfie cameras, with a wider aperture lens in front. The area of the screen reserved for the camera still works with touch control, and Oppo says display quality won’t be compromised.
When the camera on the front is not being used, you can use the touchscreen as normal. Obviously, there will be concerns regarding fingerprints in that area and other factors but Oppo says there is nothing to worry about.
Now what about the actual phone in hand of normal public? Oppo says that they plans to launch a device with an under-screen camera “in the near future.”
