Oppo Shows off Under-display Selfie Camera Prototype

Oppo allegedly shows off an under-display selfie camera

Oppo shows off a selfie camera hidden beneath a phone display

The video shows off a phone with no bezels and a full-screen display showing a slideshow of images.

For those seeking the ideal, notchless smartphone screen experience - prepare to be amazed.

Earlier today Oppo showcased an under-display camera that is invisible when the screen is working, and apparently Xiaomi is also working on the technology. The company shared the same video via its official Twitter account as well. OPPO is now experimenting with integrating the front camera underneath the display, eliminating the need for a cutout or a retractable lens module. "You are taking a very first look at our under-display selfie camera technology".

This is especially evident in the video's thumbnail itself, as you can see above. Since then, many Android devices have adopted the notch to house selfie cameras, 3D sensors, and more.

Oppo isn't the only firm working on this tech, though. The idea of an under-display camera isn't exactly new-patents for various solutions have existed for over a decade now-but technological limitations have prevented all of them from appearing in consumer products.

Camera phone technology may be about to change forever, thanks to the latest innovation that's been revealed by Oppo and Xiaomi: under-display cameras.

With the right lighting angle, the front-facing camera is actually visible to the naked eye.

Samsung has already produced Inifinity-O displays with punch-hole cameras. The two phones, however, came with a punch-hole camera on the display. Oppo and Xiaomi have just shown off their upcoming under-display camera technology. That said, in a follow-up post, Shen admitted that this under-screen camera technology is still in its early days.
