Tech companies have been looking for ways to get a completely bezel-less display and one such new way is an in-display camera. To make this a reality, Oppo has been one of the first companies to tease the technology and has now officially announced it at the ongoing MWC 2019 Shanghai.
Oppo has announced the new under-the-screen camera tech (USC) and also explained the working of the camera.
As per Oppo, the display has a mesh-like transparent material for the in-display front camera, which comes with a pixel structure for the light to pass through the camera. The front camera sensor is wider than the conventional selfie cameras and calls for a wider aperture.

Additionally, the camera comes with an area control functionality that controls the pixels in the camera module for different shooting conditions.
Since the under-the-screen camera comes hidden under the display, meaning it won’t be visible to the naked eye. However, camera samples by Engadget China suggest that the camera setup is visible in some conditions.
Oppo has admitted that the in-display camera tech comes with its share of cons and could result in blurry and low-quality images.
However, we still can’t comment on the quality of the camera as we haven’t used it yet.
Oppo has currently released the prototype of the USC tech and it will soon release it with a new smartphone ‘in the near future.’
