Oppo shows off a selfie camera hidden beneath a phone display

Xiaomi's Mi Mix 4 could also feature an in-display selfie camera

Smartphone makers are beginning to move away from the notched display and experiment with other applications, such as popup or flip-up camera modules.

However, Oppo's not the only company working on under-display camera technology.

As you can see, the video above shows an all-screen smartphone with no notches or cutouts of any kind (or even a pop-up camera), but which is still able to take selfies.

China to issue white paper on trade talks with U.S. on Sunday
That might be an "over-interpretation", Wang said, adding that China welcomed foreign firms that operate within the law. Nonetheless, they've become China's most important weapon in its ever-worsening trade conflict with the U.S.

OPPO seems to gone a step further - by directly placing the front-facing camera directly underneath the phone's display.

While we dont have much more info about the device or when it might release, the companys VP commented that the optical quality of such sensors is still inferior to regular front-facing cameras and that it will take some time to ideal them. The camera app was launched, and despite the lack of a visible front-facing camera, the screen still seemingly showed a live view of the room's ceiling. That said, in a follow-up post, Shen admitted that this under-screen camera technology is still in its early days. The under-display camera will remove the need for any motorized parts, and make devices less prone to damage from dust and debris. From here, an Oppo employee activates the selfie camera, takes a photo, and then obscures the camera with their finger.
