OPPO smartphone to meet a punch-hole camera to be placed under the display

Author at TechGenyz Mobile
Oppo Smartphone

Competitors like Samsung and Huawei opt for a punch-hole camera, or a hole in the display, behind which the selfie camera is placed. OPPO may opt for a solution in 2019 where the camera is placed under the display.

OPPO smartphone met a punch-hole camera

On January 18, 2019, two Chinese patents were included in the Global Design Database of the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office). The design patents entitled ‘Mobile phone with app icon interface’ have been requested by OPPO Guangdong Mobile Communications and show a full-screen OPPO smartphone with a punch-hole camera.

The selfie camera is placed on the top left of the display. To the left and especially to the right of the camera hole, OPPO will show various app icons. A total of five icons are shown, one of which is for the front camera.

Oppo Punch Hole CameraThis way you can immediately start the camera app at any time, as well as other apps. By making a swipe movement at the top of the display the icons become visible, you can scroll through the icons, the camera icon always stays in the same place.

OPPO is not the first manufacturer to investigate various possibilities around the punch-hole camera. So, Samsung has the A8s chose an animated display around the hole for the selfie-camera, it is probably expanded in the future with a second display area. This may already be implemented at the Galaxy S10, this high-end smartphone series is expected next month.

New OPPO smartphones at MWC 2019

OPPO intends to equip its new flagship phone with a camera with 10x optical zoom, as confirmed by OPPO Nederland last week. At MWC 2019 the first OPPO smartphone with such an optical zoom range will be introduced, this will probably be the OPPO F19 / F19 Pro.

The OPPO F19 and F19 Pro also appear to be the first OPPO smartphones with a punch-hole camera design. Next month we undoubtedly hear more about this Chinese manufacturer. MWC 2019 takes place from February 25 to February 28, 2019, in Barcelona, Spain.
