Oppo discovers how to get a front-facing camera under displays

Manufacturers have been in search for a solution for getting the front-facing camera under a screen, which would be a massive step forward for all-screen designs.

This technology would allow smartphones to have an all-screen design without any physical hardware on top — no Face ID notches, no cameras, no LED lights, etc.

Of course, the goal is to get the front-facing camera under the screen, without image degradation. Oppo says that there is some loss in image quality with this method; however, they are going to try and reduce a lot of that with software optimization.

We imagine it’s going to take a bit more than software optimization to keep the front-facing camera quality — possibly some sort of transparency innovation on the display panel side, too? We’re not sure.

Either way, it’s excellent that Oppo has innovated this technology, and means we’re just one step closer to getting a workable solution.
