Oppo showcases its under-display camera tech
- After teasing it earlier this month, Oppo has finally showcased its under-display selfie camera, a new technology which allows the front camera to sit beneath the functional pixels of the display so that no hole punch cutout is required.
- This technology makes use of a specially developed display and camera module. The screen area above the camera sensor is made of a highly-transparent material with redesigned pixel structure which ensures proper transmittance of light. The camera itself has a large aperture, big sensor, and bigger pixel size.
- Oppo has developed Haze Removal and 2 custom algorithms for White Balance and HDR which ensures good image quality from the front camera despite a thick layer of screen covering the sensor.
- Despite all the tech involved, Oppo has clearly warned that the images taken from an under-display camera may not be of the best quality and more work needs to be done on this concept.
- Oppo has not released the exact specifications of the camera sensor used here. It also isn’t known when this tech will mature enough to be used in production-spec phones.
