OPPO has recently teased on its Twitter handle showcasing the company’s first solution to eradicate the notch on the front of its smartphone that beholds the selfie shooter and other required sensors. In the process of achieving that OPPO had developed a new under-display selfie camera that hides under the display and shows up whenever required. The new camera stays hidden while the phone is being used usually, i.e., across the UI, but the camera becomes active whenever needed. A new teaser image from OPPO reveals the official launch date of this new phone, which is scheduled for last week of this month.
For those seeking the perfect, notchless smartphone screen experience – prepare to be amazed. 📲

The under-display camera technology that was showcased on an OPPO device earlier appeared to be like in a prototype and now going by the teaser image hints us to expect the fully baked new under-display front facing camera. The selfie camera on the new teased OPPO smartphone will be conveniently placed under the display at the conventional position; the company teaser also suggested the same. Regardless, we can expect to see the latest smartphone from OPPO with this cool tech on the launch event scheduled on 26th of this month in Shangai at the MWC 2019.
The counterpart Xiaomi has also showcased similar tech right after OPPO has teased the new under display working selfie camera with its latest smartphone that looks pretty similar to its Mi 9 smartphone, which had a notch for the selfie shooter. Going by the cool under display technologies by these Chinese companies hints us the companies’ urgency of ditching the notch altogether and reducing the risk of using motorized pop-up cameras as well.
Though the teaser image suggests showcasing the new under-play camera tech at MWC 2019 Shanghai, it is still unclear whether the device will be available for the consumer yet as there’s no information of mass production if the new device even. Despite, we can expect the new under-display camera smartphone from OOPO in some time soon by this year, or early next year. Stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more such interesting updates.
