Oppo announces its next-generation under-display camera technology

Oppo has shown the latest version of its under-screen camera technology, saying that it allows for the placement of a selfie camera beneath the display “without jeopardizing the screen’s integrity.” Oppo is employing smaller pixels to preserve the same 400-PPI sharpness as the rest of the OLED panel, unlike previous efforts that reduced pixel density in the screen section covering the camera to let more light come through.

Users should notice “almost no visual difference between the [under-screen camera] area and the rest of the screen during normal use,” according to Oppo, “providing a far more immersive visual experience.” Due to the white background and crisp lettering, the business has shown off an image of a prototype phone running an e-reader app, which would be the worst-case scenario for older under-display cameras.

Here’s an example photograph was given by Oppo to demonstrate the camera’s quality:

It’s only one sample taken in good light, and there appear to be some color artifacts in certain areas. However, it seems far superior to the first under-display camera to hit the market, which was found on ZTE’s Axon 20 5G.

ZTE, on the other hand, has an advantage over Oppo in that it has already shipped a phone, and its newer Axon 30 is claimed to have improved the technology as well. ZTE claims that the camera part of the screen has the same 400-PPI density as the Axon 20 and superior camera quality.

Oppo has been working on under-display cameras for a long time, displaying the world’s prototype at MWC Shanghai in 2019, but it will have to put one in a commercial product at some point. For the time being, it’s difficult to say anything about the technological advancements without first seeing a prototype in person.
