Oppo is scheduled to show off the world's first-ever smartphone with an under-display selfie camera at MWC Shanghai 2019 in a couple of days.

The previous teaser tweet showed off a disguised phone with a full-screen display, that then shocks us when the camera app opens to reveal a live-view camera hidden behind the display.

At the beginning of this month, OPPO surprised the smartphone industry by showing off a protype of its in-display camera technology. The evolution covers innovations such as OPPO's manually flip around selfie camera, the notch, and slide out selfie cameras. He had also said that it is hard to mass produce the in-display camera technology. Oppo's VP Shen Yiren wrote on Weibo that the company is now focusing on solving the complexities of the under-display front camera.

We have already heard OPPO say that the quality is not quite there yet compared to a normal selfie camera and the challenges in producing such a thing are real. The Find Y was recently trademarked by Oppo as the Find X approaches its one year anniversary and the new smartphone could well be the sequel to last year's Find X. The video revealed a notchless phone that's sitting on top of a desk and has a full-screen display at the top with no space for sensors apart from the earpiece. A day ahead of the MWC Shanghai 2019, OPPO VP Brian Shen took to Weibo to state that the image quality of the in-screen camera technology may not be good. Shen said "At this stage, it's hard for under-display cameras to match the same results as normal cameras, there's bound to be some loss in optical quality".
