"Under-Screen Camera" is a feat of engineering which integrates both the front camera module and screen
OPPO unveiled a revolutionary piece of tech called Under-Screen Camera (USC) at MWC Shanghai 2019, which offers a "real full screen" user experience.
"OPPO is committed to product and technology innovation that creates a more immersive and comprehensive experience for users," said Andy Shi, President, OPPO MEA. "USC is part of OPPO's vision for the future that we hope will promote the industry's technological evolution from zero to one. We also view our technological innovation as a way to expand the imagination while opening up a wide range of application scenarios."
USC is OPPO's attempt at bringing the new-generation smartphone form factor. By integrating the front camera and the screen, USC provides users with a complete view, an immersive screen and an integrated body. It also enables users to see and capture the entire screen, take photos, use face unlock and make video calls.
As OPPO's latest under-screen display solution, USC features a customized camera module that captures more light; zoning control is employed on the screen, together with "highly-transparent" material that enhances transmittance of light through the screen.
Besides, through OPPO's customized algorithm, haze removal algorithm and white balance algorithm, USC can enable complete photography experience and support features like smart beauty mode and photo filers in the future.
"As smartphone offers more functionalities nowadays, users have higher demand for immersive and broad screen view. From the water-drop screen to pivot structure, to USC technology announced today, OPPO has been exploring the best balance between ‘thin and light' and ‘full screen'," said Andy Shi. "OPPO hopes to provide users with the ultimate ‘true full screen' through the USC technology."
In addition, OPPO also exhibited its latest in 5G and IoT - OPPO Reno 5G can load large-scale mobile games in the cloud via a 5G network, enabling users to enjoy 5G cloud gaming.
In the IoT Smart Home Zone, OPPO featured its IoT open platform, which is compatible with products across more than 20 categories, including more than 260 devices from a variety of brands
