(Pocket Ribbon) – Huawei is being tipped to be the first manufacturer to market a phone with a front camera hidden under the display.
Multiple phone makers have been associated with under-display camera technology over the past year, including Samsung, Xiaomi and the Vivo group, but Huawei is the closest to full consumer use, it is said.
It could even appear on the Huawei Mate 40 expected in late 2020.
Gizmochina cites a Chinese tipster who noted that the company will likely lead the race to get the camera technology into users' hands.
The site also claims that, thanks to previous speculation, under-display camera devices are likely to appear in the second half of this year. Put those rumors together and it points to the Mate 40 and / or Mate 40 Pro being the first.
An under-display camera is somewhat of the holy grail for phone manufacturers, who want to produce a phone with nearly 100 percent display, without the compromise of a notch or pop-up camera unit.
The lens is under the glass and LED / OLED structure, which becomes transparent when a photo is taken from the front.
This poses serious challenges (and a few caveats), as placing extra glass or some other kind of substrate in front of a lens can negatively impact its properties – image quality, focus, etc. But we will no doubt get there soon. find out enough. if that is caveat, we must be aware of it.
