Say goodbye to the selfie camera, OPPO makes it invisible. We were used to knowing great advances in mobile technology at the same time that new models were presented, but things are changing. The latest to follow a different path has been OPPO, which has presented its completely invisible selfie camera without showing it in a specific model.
For years manufacturers have been working hard and constantly on making it possible for the selfie camera to be under the screen, but the results we had seen so far were not convincing. The one who had come closest was ZTE, who with its latest ZTE Axon 30 showed us that it was possible to make the camera no longer visible due to the density of pixels present in that particular area. Now, with a similar mechanism, OPPO is doing the same for its next phones.
To achieve the result that OPPO shows us in the images, it has had to modify the pixels to make them smaller. In this way, the camera can see through the screen without affecting what we see on the screen. An evolution that has not been easy since it offers the same pixel density per inch across the panel, which is 400 PPi this time. Controlling at the same time the brightness of the screen even in the most difficult situations, such as reading content on the mobile, even with the minimum brightness.
Transparent wiring has also played an indispensable role, which is a new manufacturing process for smartphones that provides an enhanced visual experience. With all this OPPO has focused on forgetting the mark on the screen that let us see the Axon 20 and other mobiles from various manufacturers who have dared to show their attempts at transparent selfie camera. An innovation that is sure to be imitated by other brands.
An innovation that has had such a high cost can not mean lousy results and now that we know that OPPO has managed to leave us at a glance the best possible result, it’s time to know how it works. OPPO itself has shared the first selfie made with this invisible camera technology and the truth is that it surprises us.
The results speak for themselves and are that it achieves a surprising sharpness and colors that have nothing to do with the tests of cameras under the screen offered so far. This makes us think that OPPO is finishing developing the technology to apply it as soon as possible in its high-end. For now, the model used for these tests is called OPPO USC, which could later be called OPPO Find X4 Pro, if we allow ourselves to dream about the future.
