Oppo’s first under-show camera demo looks distinctly original

Oppo has announced the new under-the-screen camera tech (USC) and also explained the working of the camera. Will this be the new smartphone trend for the year 2019?

This new handset doesn't have a notch, or a pop up camera, or a hole for the front camera, instead the camera is disguised under the display and you can not see it when you are using the display on the handset.

Oppo has admitted that the in-display camera tech comes with its share of cons and could result in blurry and low-quality images.

Chinese smartphone vendors have been at the forefront of the bezel-less smartphone campaign.

Oppo a small smartphone company compared to the likes of Apple or Samsung revealed its new technology that lets selfie cameras hide beneath a smartphone's screen.

Trump on Monday imposed sanctions on Iran's Supreme Leader and other officials after Iran downed an USA drone last week. Israel, which will have to sign off on numerous proposal's projects, did not send any government officials, either.

This is not the first time OPPO has spoken about the technology though since the company has released a short video that showed the camera in action. There also looks to be some loss of resolution of the display where the front-facing USC is positioned, too, up near the phone's top bezel.

No notches, no pop-up cameras.

Oppo has unveiled other mobile innovations in the past, well before making them available to the public, including the VOOC fast-charging batteries, and the periscope cameras that support improved zoom. Certainly, it seems likely that - even with a bigger sensor and lots of post-processing - the fact that you're trying to shoot an image through an active display would inevitably involve a loss of quality. In the last round, both of them resorted to sliding mechanisms to hide the front camera, as seen on the Find X and the Mi MIX 3. The sensor itself is said to be larger than other selfie cameras, with a wider aperture lens in front.

There are some drawbacks with this design. It claims to have developed algorithms to compensate for this, and that performance is similar to existing smartphones with exposed cameras. The company has proudly proclaimed that it has mastered the "under screen" selfie camera and that it will be including the tech in its forthcoming handsets. Oppo has dubbed the technology a USC, or Under-Screen Camera.
