Earlier, a video was shared on Weibo by Shen Yiren, Vice president OPPO, where a phone with shown with an in-screen front shooter. The camera was completely hidden, located at the top of the display and the post was titled as "For those seeking the perfect, notch-less smartphone screen experience – prepare to be amazed"
But don't get too excited yet as the Oppo VP also pointed out that we won't be able to get our hands on it any time soon, at least not this year. As per Yiren, the complexity of the whole process of placing a camera under the screen makes it harder to mass produce it this year so the technology will take its time to reach the end user.
