Oppo to reveal first smartphone with under-display selfie camera next week?

Oppo and Xiaomi both caused a stir earlier this month when they posted videos showing phones with under-display selfie cameras. The former company might be gearing up to reveal more about the tech in question as soon as next week.

An official Oppo post on Weibo (spotted by MySmartPrice) confirms a June 26 event at the MWC Shanghai expo. The machine-translated text doesn’t seem to mention an under-display selfie camera though.

The image on the poster does however show a circle of light on a screen, with what appears to be an earpiece at the top. This would likely be the position for an under-display selfie camera on a smartphone, then. The circle and position also seems to match up well with Oppo’s video earlier this month, showing the tech in action.

Will we see a commercially available smartphone with the tech or will Oppo merely be showcasing the tech at this event? The teaser poster doesn’t answer the question, but it would make for an impressive turnaround time. Samsung previously suggested that the tech was roughly a year away from release.

A selfie camera under the screen would allow manufacturers to ditch notches, pop-up selfie cameras, and slider designs. But picture quality via these cameras is still a concern, with Oppo VP Brian Shen previously stating that there will be a drop in picture quality at this stage.

We’ve contacted Oppo for confirmation that we will indeed see under-display selfie camera tech next week. We’ll update the article with their response if/when they get back to us. Would you buy the first phone with an under-display selfie camera? Let us know in the comments!
