Oppo has recently unveiled its new under-screen camera technology for smartphones, which is meant to provide the perfect balance between screen quality and camera image quality. They shared photos of a prototype device, effectively showcasing a true full-screen experience without a hole-punch or any notches or motorized parts. It looks absolutely flawless and you can’t see the selfie camera on the display at all.
Several companies have tried their hand at removing the usual selfie camera before by using a heavy pop-up camera design, for example, and by trying an under-screen selfie camera. However, while they may have produced a true full-screen experience; they usually came with poor image quality, too.
Oppo used its proprietary artificial intelligence algorithms and various hardware innovations to create this technology, including 1-to-1 pixel circuit driving to improve the screen’s lifespan, shrinking pixel sizes without decreasing pixel amounts, and replacing the traditional screen with a transparent wiring material. This ensures that the display’s integrity and consistency remain intact whether the camera is in use or not.
Oppo states that this process has given a finer display quality and a smoother visual experience overall. To date, Oppo hasn’t shared a release date for a phone with this technology, but we are definitely looking forward to it.
