OPPO has just announced the latest iteration of its under-screen camera technology, this technology is claimed to be able to provide selfie capabilities through the camera placed under the screen without any notch or punch hole at all.
Actually, OPPO has previously exhibited this technology some time ago and even more recently, ZTE has also brought similar technology in its smartphones.
But based on the information provided by OPPO, it is stated that this new under-screen camera technology will not provide a visual display at all. This means that users will not know if there is a camera behind the smartphone screen.
“The company has shown an image of a smartphone prototype that is running an e-reader application. It can be seen that text can still appear with sharp resolution on a white background,” OPPO said quoted from The Verge.
OPPO also shows off the quality of photos taken through the camera technology under the screen and the results are quite good even though they can’t be equivalent to the camera lens of a smartphone that uses a notch or punch-hole screen.

Unfortunately, unlike ZTE, which immediately applies this new technology to its smartphones, OPPO has not yet confirmed when the technology will be introduced on their smartphones. We’ll just have to wait for more details.
