OPPO and Xiaomi tease under-display selfie camera

03 June 2019 3

Ever since the notch was introduced, the purists literally pleaded companies to work out ways to avoid the notch. Manufacturers as well have been innovating with pop up camera, slide up camera, hole punch, swivel camera, and flip camera setups, however, motorized moving parts come with their limitations and had their fair share of critics.

Under display selfie camera was thought to be the best solution to offer a full display, edge to edge display without any notches. Chinese smartphone maker OPPO has now officially teased a perfect notch less phone with an under-display selfie camera. The video shared initially on Weibo has been now shared on official OPPO Twitter handle. While the video doesn’t share any more details but it shows off a perfectly working selfie camera housed under the display.

Shortly after OPPO shared the video of its working prototype, another Chinese technology brand, Xiaomi has shared a video on social media showing off it’s under display selfie camera. Pocophone’s global head, Alvin Tse, has shared this video on Twitter. This video is a comparative one which shows a couple of phones one with a water drop notch and the other one with an under-display selfie camera. The video was later tweeted by Xiaomi's official twitter handle too.

Both the brands have not shared any info regarding the model or the availability as of now, suggesting that these are working prototypes which may soon. We will have to wait and see which of these brands become the first one to launch a phone with an in-display selfie camera.
