OPPO Smartphone With Invisible Punch Hole To Launch At MWC Shanghai
In order to maximise the screen-to-body ratio on a smartphone, OEMs started embracing design changes like a notch. Even though Apple was not first company to launch the a smartphone with a notch, iPhone X from 2017 made this design change much more acceptable to the general public. As it seemed, displays with notch on top were here to stay, companies including Samsung and Huawei launched devices with punch hole (1,2). Surprisingly, users quickly got accustomed to handsets with this type of display as well.
Although the punch hole is widely accepted, there is no doubt that this cutout in the display acts as an intrusion while playing games or consuming media. In order to overcome this obstacle, smartphone manufacturer, OPPO is resorting to a unique and impressive technological advancement. In the latest teaser, OPPO is boasting of a smartphone with a punch hole which can be concealed or covered with the display on top.
In simpler words, the OPPO smartphone will have a punch hole camera which whenever not in use will be invisible as the pixels on top will function like any other region on the display. Korean electronics giant, Samsung was previously granted a patent for a device with a similar feature which is yet to make its way to final production.
