Ever since the notch appeared on smartphones, it was not welcomed very well. There have been countless times when people expressed their dislike regarding this feature.
Well, Oppo has just shown that it can be done through a demonstration unit at Mobile World Congress in Shanghai.
Recently, Oppo and Xiaomi both teased us with their upcoming under-screen cameras, but showing a working model to the public makes all the difference in the world. Therefore, Oppo’s device was very much present in Shanghai.
Engadget China‘s photos and impressions illustrate that the transparent LCD that used to cover the camera assembly looks significantly different from its surroundings.
Since losing a lot of incoming light to the LCD layer, the camera features a larger sensor with bigger pixels that allows better capturing of light.
Therefore, this means a lower resolution, reduced sharpness and increase artifacts, caused by shooting through an extra layer.
Apparently, the manufacturer is working on these in software, but we can’t help but notice the photos don’t look that great.
However, Oppo’s camera is a brave attempt towards a notchless future.
By now, we don’t have information regarding its available for purchase or in what models it will arrive.
