Oppo demonstrates a smartphone with an under-display front camera

Oppo demonstrates a smartphone with an under-display front cameraIt seems like finding a solution to maintaining an unhindered view at the displays of our smartphones, which take up more and more from the total front surface of the device, has become one of the main points of focus in smartphone design. Various pop-up camera solutions, notch and punch-hole styles have appeared. Now it's the under-display camera's turn.

Oppo teased on Twitter a video of a smartphone prototype with a working under-display camera. Oppo's Vice President Brian Shen, who shared the video on Weibo as well, said that this technology is in its early stage and there's still some loss in optical quality, so they can't match the performance of regular front cameras. Vivo, which is an Oppo sister company, is also working on such a solution. However, the first company that is known to work on it is Samsung.

In October 2018, it became clear that Samsung works on an under-display camera. A month ago, Korean news agency Yonhap reported that Yang Byung-duk, vice president of Samsung's Mobile Communication R&D Group Display, said in a briefing: "Though it wouldn't be possible to make (a full-screen smartphone) in the next 1-2 years, the technology can move forward to the point where the camera hole will be invisible, while not affecting the camera's function in any way." This is deemed as an indirect confirmation that such a solution is in development.Source
