Oppo is always contributing something remarkable to the technology world. Oppo, that’s done its share of display notches and pop-up selfie cameras, also the first company who demonstrated and introduced a prototype under-screen selfie camera to the public in an event in MWC shanghai trade show in China. Like other pop-up modules in Oppo Reno and OnePlus 7 Pro, a punch-hole in the screen like the Samsung Galaxy S10, Oppo is introducing something specific literally underneath the screen.
Oppo officials say the display uses a custom transparent under screen material with a redesigned pixel structure, so the light can get through the camera. But Oppo acknowledged that putting a screen in front of a camera may reduce photo quality with issues like haze, glare, blur and color cast. Also, Oppo claims that the under-screen selfie camera lens will be invisible while the screen is on. The company says they developed algorithms to fix the photo quality issues and tuned the hardware to address these issues.
Oppo under-screen selfie camera phone offers an entirely unbroken screen with no additional moving parts to snap a selfie. Oppo says the selfie camera has many uses, other than taking selfies the camera also works for face ID unlock and video calls.
When they begin the production!
On top of this, Oppo says something new called “zoning control” will be used when the under-screen selfie camera is in use. Oppo doesn’t say anything specifically what that means.
Also, Oppo didn’t confirm when we’ll have the latest technology and when they will start the production and availability to customers. For now, though, you can buy Oppo’s most recent smartphones like Oppo Reno and Oppo Reno 10x Zoom, which is having a shark-fin pop up segment hiding the selfie camera.
