OPPO premieres first Under-Screen Camera that offers a more immersive full-screen experience
USC is OPPO’s latest innovation in new-generation smartphone form factor. By integrating the front camera and the screen, USC provides users with a complete view, an immersive screen and an integrated body. It also enables users to see and capture the entire screen, take photos, use face unlock and make video calls.
As OPPO’s latest under-screen display solution, USC features a customised camera module that captures more light; zoning control is employed on the screen, together with “highly-transparent” material that enhances transmittance of light through the screen. Besides, through OPPO’s customized algorithm, haze removal algorithm and white balance algorithm, USC can enable complete photography experience and support features like smart beauty mode and photo filers in the future.
“As smartphone offers more functionalities nowadays, users have a higher demand for immersive and broad screen view. From the water-drop screen to pivot structure, to USC technology announced today, OPPO has been exploring the best balance between ‘thin and light’ and ‘full screen’,”
said Qiao Jiadong.
“OPPO hopes to provide users with the ultimate ‘true full screen’ through the USC technology.”
