Chinese mobile maker Oppo today unveiled its solution to the ubiquitous smartphone display notch – the "word's first" Under-Screen Camera (USC). According to Oppo, the selfie camera is embedded under a section of the display that's made of a highly transparent custom material with a special pixel structure, which enables light to pass through to the lens.
The selfie camera is also said to be larger than other front-facing cameras, featuring a wider aperture lens in front of the sensor. Oppo said it has developed software algorithms that address haze, glare, and color cast issues, resulting in pictures that are "on par with mainstream devices."
This isn't the first time Oppo has tried to innovate in the mobile camera space. The company in February introduced a 10x optical zoom camera system for smartphones. So it's clear that there is some good innovation also coming out of China. Who knows maybe Apple will patent this and claim it as their "invention".
