Oppo warns first under-screen cameras won't have the best image quality

Yordan, 25 June 2019

Oppo is expected to introduce its under-screen camera solution tomorrow at MWC Shanghai. According to earlier teasers, the shooter is hidden behind a screen when off, omitting the need for notches or moving mechanisms.

However, less than 24 hours before the launch, the company Vice President Brian Shen said expectations about image quality should not be high - the new technology is still in development.

The post came as an answer to another user that expressed concerns about the quality of the photos. The first gen technology will behave as if the front element isn't perfectly clean, raising questions whether the first gen under-screen tech will even make it to an actual product or we'll have to wait for another iteration.

Introducing the under-screen camera would be another milestone for the Dongguan-based company. Back in 2013, we saw the Oppo N1 with a rotating shooter. It was also among the first companies to implement the waterdrop notch with the Oppo F9 and how can anyone forget the Oppo Find X and Oppo Reno with their unusual elevating mechanisms.
