In recent years, smartphone designs are becoming thinner. There is a new trend of slim, sexy hardware and now no one wants to buy heavy, bulky smartphones. Notches have been there for some time but with time, it also gotten slimmer and now manufactures are moving towards a full edge-to-edge design with no notches. So where are they going to place the front-camera on all these devices?


Over the last year, we seen display screens with less notches, holes, or pop-up cameras, but now it is time for hidden selfie camera. Oppo and Xiamoi are doing just that by placing the camera under the display itself. Today in a tweet, Chinese smartphone company Xiaomi showed off its exciting new design. Yesterday Oppo released a short video on a smartphone snapping a photo with an in-display that you can't see. To make the point clear, a finger was posed in front of the camera in the end of the video and you can see a blurry image of the finger on the screen.

Xiamoi also posted its own video to display a smartphone with an in-display selfie-camera. In the video the upcoming phone was compared with the Xiaomi Mi 9 side by side. The prototype has a full display with no cut-out, no notch or pop-up camera but it can still take a selfie just like a regular smartphone. Oppo didn't reveal much about the technology but Xiamoi get one step further by explaining the whole mechanism. The camera features a 20MP camera and a transparent display that doubles as the camera lens and allows more light into the lens to enable the perfect selfies, but when the display is off, the camera goes invisible against the rest of the black surface of the screen. These are just prototypes and there hasn't any real demo done by the companies in public so far. But we can hope for some of the best technologies to experience this year.
