Chinese electronics maker Oppo unveiled the latest iteration of its under-screen camera technology, claiming it allows for a selfie camera to be placed under the display without compromising the integrity of the screen. The company tried to reduce pixel density in the portion of the screen that covers the camera to let more light pass through.
Oppo is using smaller pixels to maintain the same 400-ppi sharpness as the rest of the OLED panel. According to Oppo, users should notice no visual difference between the under-screen camera area and the rest of the screen during everyday use, creating a much more immersive visual experience.
Chinese electronic maker Oppo has been working on under-display cameras for a long time, showing off the world’s first demo at MWC Shanghai in 2019, but at some point, it must put an actual commercial device. Now it is hard to say about the tech improvements without seeing a prototype in person. The company’s latest launch includes the Reno 6 series featuring the Reno 6 Pro 5G and Reno 6 5G. In the past six months, Oppo has launched smartphones under its F series and A series.
