2018 was the year of notched display but in 2019, the smartphone companies are trying to get rid of this trend and are working on new technologies to provide a Full View display without any cut-out or holes at the front. Last year, OPPO and Vivo gave way to the pop-up cameras but now we are moving towards an era of invisible selfie camera.
Both OPPO and Xiaomi have been working on under-display cameras for their phones and thankfully we won’t have to wait much longer to see the technology at work as the former smartphone brand is ready to showcase it at MWC Shanghai 2019 on 26th June.
The Chinese firm has released a new poster on Weibo suggests that the company may unveil its new under-display camera tech to the world.
Previously, the company gave us all the preview of its new under-display camera phone in a tweet and it is likely that OPPO would reveal a prototype instead of a retail-ready smartphone at MWC Shanghai 2019. But looking at how quickly it adapted pop-camera tech in Find X in 2018, we can’t help but be hopeful about the debut of under-display camera phone for users this year.
As of right now, we are not sure how the new technology would work and the company’s VP Brian Shen admitted in a Weibo post that the optical quality of the under-display camera phone will suffer “some loss” saying that every new tech needs time to be perfected. This further pushes us to believe that this technology is not yet ready for mass production.
After in-display fingerprints, the new under-display cameras will be a huge step for the smartphone market across the world. Let’s see how OPPO will pull it off for its smartphone users.
