In case you missed it, the Chinese mobile maker recently teased its newest innovation but the company didn’t really explain how this technology works. Later on, Xiaomi revealed that they’re also working on a device that features the same camera mechanism. However, it seems like OPPO is currently leading the race, as the brand allows MWC attendees to test its under-screen camera tech.

The demo unit flashes an immersive display that has no notch, punch-hole design, or a pop-up camera design. When not in use, the panel hides its camera, enabling the device to flaunt an all-screen display. Meanwhile, upon launching the camera app, a circular motion will appear to reveal its lens hidden under the screen.

To make this possible, OPPO introduced its customized display and camera module. A regular panel will not allow the sensor to get light as much as possible, hence, the part of the screen above the lens is made of a unique highly-transparent material with a redesigned pixel structure.

Its camera is also unique, as it comes with a large aperture, big sensor, and greater pixel size to prevent light refraction.

Meanwhile, OPPO admitted that the camera will take blurry images if a solid material sits on top of its sensor. With this, the company explained that there are three algorithms to enhance its camera performance without compensating its display quality: White Balance, HDR algorithm, and Haze Removal algorithm.
