The front camera posed a huge problem whenever smartphone manufacturers aimed to create a full-display smartphone. Apple gave a notch to the industry. Samsung came up with four types of infinity display but Oppo has surpassed all of these with an under-screen camera. The company made an unbelievable promise and delivered it. The hidden lens technology debut alongside a new mesh talk calling system. The front camera is there, in front of us, hidden under the display, allows you to take a selfie. There is no notch, no pop-up, or some fudge to mask the camera hole.
Oppo teased the in-display camera in early June and then promise a closer look soon. Oppo and other Chinese manufacturers have introduced other way of hiding front-camera like cut-out notice, punch-hold or pop-out cameras. There was some concern about pop-up camera reliability though, as it depends on the mechanical functionality of the device. You might wonder why no one has thought about it before Oppo. Actually, the technology to achieve this isn't easy. The display isn't a simple one in fact. It is made of a special enhanced translucent panel material which is specially customized for the camera. Then there are processing algorithms which do things like haze removal, HDR, and white balance tweaks.
The result is a completely new technology for front-facing cameras. It is capable of taking selfies just like any other smartphone. Now when we have a close look at the design, we know that it looks stunning but we don't' know about the final quality of the picture taken by this device. The fact that you are trying to take a snap from behind a display can cause a loss of quality. There could be some noise or loss of resolution of the display where the front facing display is place near the phone.
