Oppo may launch the world's first phone with under-display camera on June 26


There could be an exciting new technology milestone just around the corner, after an image which heavily suggests Oppo will launch a smartphone with a camera built under the display appeared online.

According to an image posted on Weibo (a Chinese social network), Oppo is planning on launching a new handset on June 26 during MWC Shanghai. The artwork on the image appears to show a ring highlighting where the camera is placed below the screen.

If this is what Oppo is hinting at (if the poster itself is genuine), it would allow the phone to have an uninterrupted display with no notch, or punch-hole camera (like the Honor 20 and Samsung Galaxy S10), while also removing the need for a mechanically rising camera as found on the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom and OnePlus 7 Pro.
