Oppo and Xiaomi are busy
In today's smartphone market, every producer tries to offer different camera ideas to leave more space for the display. The idea of a full-screen phone has actually been a reality for some time (just look at the various devices with removable front cameras) but, as with fingerprint sensors, the natural direction turns towards a solution directly below the screen. Apparently both Oppo and Xiaomi are already working on it with surprising results.
Brian Shen of Oppo recently shared a video showing a full-screen smartphone prototype capable of taking photos from the hidden chamber below the display, at the top. Xiaomi's response was not long in coming, and immediately afterwards she published a video of what appears to be a Mi 9 with similar technology. No hole, notch or retractable chamber. Which attracts us a lot.
Obviously these are prototypes and in fact it is not possible for us to formulate hypotheses on the possible release date. The spokesmen of the two companies, however, have made it known that the works are proceeding smoothly and shipped. I wonder if any other Chinese competitor will anticipate them over time making us have a taste of true borderless display without compromise by the end of the year. Never say never.
