Oppo displays working ‘under-display’ camera

A front-facing camera without a notch, pop up

What you’re looking at could be the world’s first under-display camera. The video was posted to Oppo’s official Twitter account without much detail. What we can see, though, is a working front-facing camera that doesn’t need a notch or pop-up sliding mechanism to leave that edge-to-edge display uninterrupted.

Oppo has made a name for itself with innovations like super-fast VOOC charging and periscope zoom lenses that eventually made their way into shipping products.

There’s no telling when we’ll see the first smartphone with one of these invisible under-display cameras. But now that they exist, how long could it be?
