Oppo Has Added a Selfie Camera Inside the Display


Over the last few years, you may have noticed that the main focus of mobile phone manufacturers in the creation of the highest mobile phone screen-to-body ratio.

MWC Shanghai 2019 launches in China today, and the conference’s big announcement comes from Oppo – the Dongguan-based manufacturer who launched its first undercover camera earlier this month.  The selfie shooter goes under the scene and has full-screen experience without any screen or moving mechanism.

Part of the anti-bezel experiments with oppo, display notes and pop-up selfie cameras, and the first to show the camera under the screen at MWC Shanghai this week after a joke earlier this month.  Along with the show, Oppo has revealed more about how technology actually works.

However the biggest problem was that to increase the screen-to-body ratio, you had to remove or replace the selfie camera, fingerprint sensor, proximity, and other sensors.

As a solution, Oppo has added a selfie camera to the display, adding a notch to most phones last year and using in-display fingerprint sensors.

To accomplish this task, they created a pixel structure using transparent material, enabling the camera’s image sensor to be larger than any other camera.

Oppo recognizes that placing a screen in front of a camera will inherently reduce the image quality, and should avoid significant issues such as helmets, glitter and color casting.  The company claims that it has developed advanced algorithms with hardware to solve these problems and that the quality is “similar to that of mainstream devices,” but after shipping the technology we have to figure out what it means on a commercial phone.

The larger the aperture of the camera, the greater the amount of light that the image sensor captures.

The quality of the display has not been diminished, and the touch screen in the area where the camera is located, the Oppo company said.

Oppo is reportedly working on developing and optimizing algorithms to reduce image quality and maximize output by having a screen in front of the camera.

Renault also owns a notch-free screen with its selfie lens attached to a pop-up shark camera.  It’s not a 100% screen, but the screen-to-body ratio is very close to 93.1%.

However, they have yet to release a mobile phone with this technology.  The device, designed as a prototype, is expected to be launched soon.
