Huawei has developed a smartphone with a screen camera
In June this year, OPPO demonstrated to the public a possible round of device development. smartphones with a front-facing camera. The company even brought a ready-made prototype to the MWC 2019 exhibition, demonstrating that the front camera can be completely invisible in normal use.
OPPO engineers have developed a special camera module and display that can become transparent for a while and transmit light. Of course, the quality of images from such a camera leaves much to be desired, however, it is a matter of time. the technology will only improve in the future.
However, OPPO is far from the only company working on a project of a completely “frameless” smartphone. For example, the Chinese corporation Huawei back in 2018 filed an application for registration of a patent, which describes a device with a sub-screen camera. Today this document was made public.
The document describes an innovative display with adjustable transparency. Depending on the scenarios, special areas on the screen may become completely transparent, allowing the front camera to capture light. This technology is also interesting in that in addition to the front camera, other sensors can also be built into the matrix. for example, a flash or sensors for face recognition.
Such a solution, in theory, could put an end to the “recesses” in screens, retractable chambers, and other dubious elements. Isn’t that what we’ve been waiting for all this time?
Unfortunately, little is known about the real plans of Huawei. But there is every reason to believe that such devices will still appear on the market, but obviously not earlier than 2020-2021.
