A small Chinese smartphone company has figured out how to make a full-screen display without a notch or pop-up selfie camera
- Oppo, a Chinese smartphone maker, revealed its new technology called "under screen camera" (USC) that lets a selfie camera hide underneath a display.
- The USC lets Oppo include a selfie camera on smartphones without using a notch design, like the iPhone XS and countless other Android devices, or a mechanized pop-up system like you'd find on the OnePlus 7 Pro and Asus Zenfone 6.
- The tech may come with compromises to selfie camera quality, but Oppo hopes its software-based solutions will address some of the quality issues.

Oppo - a small smartphone company compared to the likes of Apple or Samsung - revealed its new technology that lets selfie cameras hide beneath a smartphone's screen.The technology, which Oppo showed off at the MWC Shanghai event, means that the smartphone can include an all-screen front surface without a notch or an alternative mechanical system to hide the selfie camera, like a pop-up selfie camera you'd find on the OnePlus 7 Pro, or the Asus Zenfone 6.
Oppo admitted that USC selfie camera might not match the quality of a traditional selfie camera, and it developed software-based solutions to deal with some of the issues a camera hidden under a display might face, like haze, glare, and color issues.So far, Oppo only announced the USC technology, not a smartphone that will actually come with an under screen selfie camera. The company plans to unveil a device with USC technology, but it's not exactly clear when.
