ZTE Axon 20 5G was the only smartphone that had an under-screen camera until now. Major smartphone manufacturers like Vivo, Oppo, and Xiaomi were testing this technology but the quality of the image had to be compromised with the available technology. So these manufacturers went on with their punch-hole cameras.
ZTE faced much criticism for its under-screen camera. But the company recently launched a new version into Axon 30 5G which was launched in China. Following this, Oppo very recently revealed its third-gen under-screen camera that looks a lot better with no noticeable haziness or glare. The company has only unveiled the photo, and we cannot assure good performance with just a photo. Even then, the technology used by them is quite trustworthy. The screen view of the camera has not changed. The performance will be limited by the amount of light travelling through the space between each OLED pixel. This makes AI compensation necessary. Oppo has engaged its AI engine with tons of photos to make accurate shots.
The consistency maintained by the display panel is another improvement done by Oppo. The new display panel allows the same pixel density as the rest of the screen above the under-screen camera. It also has added a transparent wiring material and a one-to-one pixel-circuit-to-pixel architecture in the area above the camera.
Oppo hasn’t given any information on when will smartphones make use of this technology.
