Xiaomi & Oppo Have Just Hid Their Selfie Cameras Under Their Displays

Apparently, Chinese manufacturers have been under Apple and Samsung’s skin over the past few years, and 2019 has been no exception. Both, Xiaomi and Oppo have recently showcased some major tech today revealing what their upcoming smartphones could look like featuring an under-display camera.

As the title suggests, these phones are going to finally going to send the pesky notch to the grave. With the selfie camera now tucked under the display, pretty much every manufacturer would jump aboard on the tech and maximize their real estate.

Based on both of the videos, it seems like the displays did pretty well on their own. However, you may also notice that in both, Xiaomi and Oppo’s demos, the camera requires the displays to be turned off or go completely black to take a picture, probably to avoid conflicts with the light and pixels the display lights up.

So far, both, Xiaomi and Oppo have showcased prototypes rather than consumer-end devices. And given the current state of smartphones and how smartphones have adapted to such technologies, we may see these designs be implemented by the end of the year, putting an end to notches as well as pop-up cameras for good.
