OPPO introduces Under-Screen Camera technology for notch-less smartphones

After teasing it earlier this month, OPPO today introduced its Under-Screen Camera technology for smartphones at its MWC Shanghai event. This uses a customized camera module, an enhanced translucent panel material combined with advanced processing algorithms to take images without a notch or motorized camera, while keeping the body thin.

Normally, the light passing through the screen will be lost. Therefore, the actual light received by the camera under the screen is less than half, which makes the image captured to lose color and details. To overcome this OPPO has used ‘multi-algorithm optimization’ for haze removal, HDR and white balance to ensure the best picture quality.

It will support several camera functions including smart beauty and filters in the future, said the company, however it didn’t say when we can expect the first phone with this technology.

OPPO also showcased MeshTalk, a decentralized short-range communications solution that enables you to talk and send messages without the need for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or cellular data when up to 3km with another device. It also doesn’t need base stations or other servers, since it uses a custom, low power chipset  that enables a LAN network and relay communication system between multiple OPPO devices when they are within range.
