Oppo says it plans to launch a device with an under-screen camera “in the near future. ” The company often shows off core technology at trade shows in prototype form before shipping it on a commercial product — the current Reno flagship phone with its periscope zoom lens is a good example — so there’s reason to believe such a phone will be coming soon.
Oppo, a company that’s done its share of anti-bezel experimentation with display notches and pop-up selfie cameras, is the first to demonstrate an under-screen camera to the public at MWC Shanghai this week, after a tease earlier in the month.
The area of the screen reserved for the camera still works with touch control, and Oppo says display quality won’t be compromised.
Oppo does acknowledge that putting a screen in front of a camera will inherently reduce photo image quality, with significant problems like haze, glare, and color cast needing to be overcome.
