Oppo And Xiaomi Teases Videos OF Their Under Display Selfie Cameras

Oppo And Xiaomi Teases Videos OF Their Under Display Selfie Cameras

The next innovation in mobile is peeking its head for all to see today after Oppo and Xiaomi, have just shown off working versions of under-screen cameras. Both companies have shown videos featuring unidentified smartphones, with selfie cameras that are hidden away underneath the screen.

Following the rise of divisive notch and hole-punch cutouts, several smartphone companies have been looking at ways of removing anything intrusive from handset screens. The industry has since given us smartphone cameras that pop out, flip up and slide out, while the hole-punch condenses the notch further still, but the next stage is going under the screen for full invisibility.

Oppo VP Brian Shen shared a short video clip in a tweet of what appears to be a notch-free prototype smartphone lying on a desk.“You are taking a very first look at our under-display selfie camera technology,” Oppo wrote in a tweet, with a video attached showing off how the tech worked.


The video needs watching a few times to see what’s going on, as only the top half of the phone is visible. The camera app was launched, which is already in selfie mode. The screen still seemingly showed a live view of the room's ceiling and the on-screen view is unidentifiable, and it’s not clear what we’re really seeing — until the operator puts their finger over a previously invisible camera lens, obscuring the view of what was presumably the ceiling.

"At this stage, it's difficult for under-display cameras to match the same results as normal cameras, there's bound to be some loss in optical quality," Shen said, in a follow-up post. "But, no new technology jumps to perfection right away."

You’d imagine that a number of Chinese smartphone makers are hard at work bringing this design to reality. Proof of that comes from Chinese rival Xiaomi shared a clip showing its own in-display camera technology within a few hours of Oppo’s video going live, which had been added to a Mi 9 prototype.


The video has two phones, one on the right equipped with a notch and a selfie camera. As the phones are rotated, you can see the one on the left doesn’t have any visible notch, or camera lens at all. Yet the operator opens the camera app, switches to selfie mode, and takes a photo.

Samsung Has Released Special Disney And Pixar Wallpapers For The Galaxy S10

Samsung and Disney has recently launched a new range of background wallpaper. Following on from the Disney AR Emojis released last year, Samsung and Disney have brought fan-favorite characters from Disney and Pixar’s The Incredibles and Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen and Zootopia right to the home screens of the Galaxy S10.

Users have created some special wallpapers to hide the hole, and Samsung recently partnered with Disney to release a series of its own custom wallpapers that camouflage the camera

However, hiding the hole in Galaxy S10 is pretty easy with the right wallpaper as it just needs to be surrounded by something that’s black, or with something that is actually a hole, or at least a small, round dot. 

Most of Samsung’s phone themes are not free of cost. Users can use the themes for just 14 days before they expire, unless they have paid for it. But Samsung says that these new Disney ones will be free for Galaxy S10 and S10E (The Galaxy S10 Plus has a pill-shaped hole punch, and doesn’t seem to be included) users.

OnePlus 7 Pro Gets New Oxygen OS 9.5.5 Update Gets Several Camera And System Improvements

OnePlus has released a new OxygenOS 9.5.4 (international) and 9.5.5 (EU) update out for the OnePlus 7 Pro. The latest update is of 182 MB in size, and is mostly focused on improving the phone’s camera. 

Both versions have several enhancements for the camera and the system stability overall, including optimizations for Double Tap to Wake and Ambient Display. Changelog, which is identical for both, follows as usual.

Although the OnePlus 7 Pro came with a stellar DxOMark score of 111, users and critics weren’t really happy with the camera performance. The images didn’t seem to be in the same level as the other flagships, and hence the company then promised that it would soon deliver an update that will improve the picture quality.


Changelog:

  • System
    • Optimized Double Tap to Wake and Ambient Display
    • Fixed an issue that causes an audio delay with the Bluetooth headset when playing games
    • General bug fixes and improvements
  • Camera
    • Improved image quality in HDR scenarios
    • Improved image quality in low light
    • Fixed white balance issue in several scenarios
    • Fixed focus issue in several scenarios
Those who have not received the update yet, should get the notification to download and install within a few days.
