OPPO has just uploaded a teaser of its prototype smartphone that has an under-display selfie camera.
In the short video posted by OPPO’s Vice President Brian Shen on his Weibo account, a prototype smartphone that seems to be full-screen as it has no notch, no punch-hole camera, pop-up camera, or the like. Instead, what it has is allegedly an under-display camera. After it takes a photo in the video, a person’s finger can be seen hovering around an area where the under-display camera could be.
Brian Shen has added that this under-screen camera technology is still in its initial stages. According to Engadget, Brian Shen stated that:
“At this stage, it’s difficult for under-display cameras to match the same results as normal cameras, there’s bound to be some loss in optical quality. But, no new technology jumps to perfection right away.”
OPPO has not stated when this prototype smartphone will make its official debut.
For those seeking the perfect, notchless smartphone screen experience – prepare to be amazed. ?
