10 December 2019
And the under-display selfie camera is just one of the features.

I've tried a lot of BT headphones and all of them had clarity issues. None of them could last through a long international flight unless they were enormous. Finding good wired earbuds is pretty easy.

Bluetooth wireless earphones cant even beat a 20/25 bucks wired one let alone a wired earphone from same price category. enough bulsh1t on this wireless stuff. I for real use a wireless earphone too along with my wired Sennheiser but that is because of convenience not because it sounds better.

I have a close friend who has skullcandy sesh and Jabra 65t. I tried several times and they simply dont sound better than a good wired one.

Apart from being portiere and having to carry a wireless charger or powerbank everywhere I go instead if a small charger or a 1-cell powerbank, this concept beats notches and cutouts by miles. Thanks oppo, waiting for other brands to embrace it.

S Yu, 10 Dec 2019I concur. The UD camera sounds like a footnote compared to ... moreIn all fairness, not every single phone ever made must be made to fit any thinkable use case.

I have wireless chargers at home, at work and even power banks now comes with wireless charging capabilities. I've been using bluetooth headsets since the bundles one with my Motorola RIZR Z8 back in 2007.

Flagship phones pretty much does not come with SD slots, nor miniijack, and even old cameras transfer photos to smartphones through apps.

So how often does the average user really use cable for anything other than charging?

If it was a major brand, like Samsung, dropping the ports on all their devices in 2020, then sure I would get the uproar. But on one model from one manufacturer most people outside of Asia doesn't know all that well? I don't see the problem.

Though, this is potentially the same as Motorola started when they dropped the minijack once upon a time.

Cool

If camera would be recording the screen, you would have to have thicker device due to the camera having clear view of the screen. And not to mention the crazy angle adjustment due to the position of the camera.

Sorry, nope. This won't work for now...

all I ask is flat main camera without bump
and Oppo delivers

Well you break or scratches your screen and the camera will get useless as well grats.
Sounds silly to me but it wont took much longer for perfecting this technology.

snapchat color filters are real now, they just turn the pixels on again

Well, now that the future is in the present, does that mean there's no future? First it was a non removable battery, then followed the loss of headphone jack, hidden navigation buttons, screen imbedded sensors, indisplay finger print readers, internal coolers, "in-buttons", in-speakers via vibrations.... Portless phones, In-camera....... Let me go pack my bag, I'm leaving for Mars
