No cropping: OPPO shows the first front camera hidden under the screen

The ?infinite screen? trend has never exactly fulfilled the promise of delivering a device with a display that occupies the entire front of the device. This, of course, is due to some limitations in hardware construction, such as the front camera or chassis design.

The first reason, including the reason why the iPhones X, XS, XS Max and XR have the front cutout (known as notch). In that small space there are sensors and cameras of the TrueDepth system, responsible for bringing Face ID to life. On the new iPads Pro, however, Ma was able to eliminate this clipping thanks to the extra tablet chassis space.

For chinese manufacturer OPPOHowever, producing a smartphone that has a front camera and an infinite display will be a reality soon, from technology under-screen camera (USC). The company was the first to demonstrate the use of a front camera installed under the device screen during Mobile Congress World 2019 in Shanghai (China).

According to OPPO, the display uses a transparent material that has a pixelated structure so light can reach the front camera. The sensor itself is larger than that of other camera front cameras, with a wider aperture lens to capture more light as well.

This does not mean that the display area on the camera is ?unusable? or even does not faithfully display the content on the screen. According to the manufacturer, this touch-sensitive region and faithful display quality of the rest of the screen. However, depending on the tilt and ambient light, you can see the difference in the display in the camera region.

Since it's not all flowers, OPPO recognizes that placing a screen in front of a camera can reduce the quality of images due to problems such as fog, reflection and color conversion. To address this, the company stated that it is developing an algorithm capable of balancing these features by providing a selfie with quality comparable to other smartphones.

The fact is that we will only know how accurate this manufacturer information is when this technology hits the market in the next handsets of the brand. However, it is still unclear when exactly this will happen, OPPO has just said that it will plan a release ?soon?.

Does USC technology occupy the technology white elephant chair after the apparent fiasco of folding smartphones? We'll see.
