Oppo in-display camera phone

It appears Oppo is already in the game. The company has today unveiled “world’s” first in-display camera phone. The phone was kept in prototype though. However, to see this kind of technology is seems one step forward in the direction of bezel-less screen experience.

Well, under-display camera technology is not mature. It would take time. And as revealed by Oppo the first phone for users will come by 2020 in the market. This suggests the requirement of engineering which is still required to make it user-friendly.

As I said earlier, the phone still appears on an early stage. That means the phone specifications doesn’t matter to us yet.

How in-display camera technology works?

Now, I am honestly speaking, I was not turning around the idea of how this technology would work ‘internally’. Of course, we can guess there is a low reflective glass. But, not the actual working principle. So here it is explained.

The camera is embedded with the OLED panel and instead of providing a notch or punch hole for housing, the module is covered with ‘special low-reflective glass with high transmittance’.

Going in further technical information, compared to the normal display, in the transparent display, the Anode and Cathode replaced by transparent Anode and transparent Cathode which allows environment light to pass throughout the display. So, that it can enter into the camera module.

As a result, when there is camera mode turned on, the embedded camera-display combo allows capturing perfect, clear and sharp selfies compared to punch-hole or notch camera design. And when camera mode turned off, the transparent display works like a normal one. So that users can enjoy their content in full-screen view.
