Ever since the notch-system to house selfie camera and facial recognition was popularised by Apple, the tech community has been looking forward to getting rid of it once and for all. It led to waterdrop notches then to pop-up selfies and subsequently to punch-hole displays. Each had its own pros and cons. But today a teaser pops up and it looks promising.
A company that goes by the name VisionOX who manufactures Display for smartphone companies like Huawei and Xiaomi has released a teaser of under-screen front camera in a smartphone. The company also claimed that the technology is mature enough for commercial production. They added that users can expect smartphones displays with this technology would be commercially available by the second half of 2020.
VisionoOX has managed to produce OLED displays that can hide the selfie cameras under the screen by making it transparent. In addition, the company has also succeeded in eliminating the fogging effect caused by this technology. They promise high-quality selfies with this type of screen. This was achieved by VisionOX as they worked closely with other manufacturers.
Other smartphone companies like Xiaomi, Oppo, and Huawei have been teasing the development and debut of the under-display selfie camera for a while now. With the technology finally getting matured, we can expect the flagships coming towards the end of the year to have this technology. There are reports that Xiaomi will debut this technology with the upcoming Mi Mix Alpha 2. In addition, Mi Mix Alpha 2 might also debut the ultra-fast charging solution capable of an output of 100 W this year.
