You can check out the teaser video below (pulled from Weibo) to see that the prototype smartphone that Oppo will show off is going to be nearly bezel-less. Oppo would give a first-look of the new tech on June 26 at the Oppo Innovation Event during MWC Shanghai.
As for specs, details, and quality of the camera hidden behind the display, we are all left in the dark.
At the end of the video, the company has shown off an all-screen smartphone with a circular outline for the hidden front camera.
If you've been following recent development, well, Oppo previously shared a video that shows off its under-screen selfie camera. Due to the current challenges, he stated that it is hard to mass produce the tech in large quantities, as per a report by 91Mobiles. The Find Y was recently trademarked by Oppo as the Find X approaches its one year anniversary and the new smartphone could well be the sequel to last year's Find X. However, the in-display camera technology is all about embedding the front camera under the display of the phone.
Oppo is expected to commercially launch the phone later this year or early next year. It will not house any notch or intrusion on the display, offering you possibly the maximum screen-to-body ratio on any smartphone to date. When the user opens the camera app with the selfie mode, it shows the live view of the room's ceiling, thus confirming the fact that there is indeed a front-facing camera under the display.
OPPO VP, Shen Yiren Brian, has taken to Chinese social media website Weibo to announce that it is not ready for mass production and that it is very hard to do. "But, no new technology jumps to perfection right away", he said in Weibo post.
