1. The sub-display selfie camera is real

(First clip on the table via Oppo, second with the two phones via Xiaomi)

A "invisible" front view camera changes everything again:

  • Forget about carving, holes, pop-ups, sliders and sharks, we've seen the future of smartphones, laptops and new shows.
  • It's a camera under the display that offers a full screen without compromise.
  • The Technology has been working for quite some timeas this Samsung patent returned in early 2018.
  • first Oppo has released a short video which displays a prototype-looking device with a working camera embedded under the screen.
  • Xiaomi, never one to let others come, quickly released a video showing his own Mi 9 smartphone with a working cell phone.
  • The Xiaomi video definitely wins, where the camera is hiding while the screen is off and how it works with the screen and compared to the current Mi 9 device.
  • It looks great, a very interesting way to hide a camera from an unexpected place, as the video shows.

How it can work:

  • We have seen similar technology in-display fingerprint sensors. It uses optical technology to take substantially photos of fingerprints from the camera's view – just One style of fingerprint scanning technology.
  • Although we do not yet know all the fine details, it is likely that the camera sits behind an OLED display panel to capture light and make the display work normally without having a hole through most layers. from the screen.
  • This may mean that LCD panels will not work with these cameras, as LCDs are a dedicated backdrop to provide relief – hence the hole punch approach to selfie cameras we've seen late in 2018 and early 2019 smartphones dominate.
  • This includes holding the History 20while the OLED Samsung Galaxy S10 Series also had a hollow lunch.
  • The technology should work in all kinds of exhibitions, such as laptops, smart home appliances, and many more.


  • There are many unknowns: we don't know how large the image sensor can be, how the lenses work, if both photo's and video work the same way, and if there is a lot of difference in selfie quality.
  • It is most likely that there are some deviations in the quality of the selfie snaps, as the light of the OLED panel is off, and & nbsp; & nbsp; lens sit.
  • Will anyone increase privacy concerns? There are definitely a few questions that arise from hidden cameras embedded in the screen.
  • When will we see it in a smart phone that we can buy? We saw Oppo previously revealed new camera technology, which took more than two years to make it a device you can buy.
  • Xiaomi also released multiple videos of his stuff, and we still do not know much about it.

Will we see before 2020 a mobile phone with an underdog?

  • I'm going to chase, but you know me, always an optimist. (And an admission – my last bet was a loss when I said we'd get a 5G phone in 2018.)
