First In-Display Selfie Camera Spotted On Nokia 9.2 Pureview: Here’s What You Need To Know
HMD Global could be launching the world’s first in-display selfie camera phone soon, Nokia 9.2 Pureview. Nokia could be running the competition of being the first company to launch a smartphone with an in-display selfie camera.
Oppo, Xiaomi, LG and Huawei, all are trying to develop a no-notch and no-hole display.
Leaked by Ben Geskin, Nokia 9.2 Pureview is said to feature four lenses at the back with an in-display selfie camera upfront. Nokia is said to have teamed up with Light for the new technology.
At the back, Nokia 9.2 Pureview will come with a four camera system packing standard, ultrawide, telephoto and depth sensing lenses.
Coming to the important part, the render reveals no notch or no punch hole or pop-up sensor. Nokia 9.2 Pureview will have an under-glass camera utilising the new technology to click photos from within the display panel.
Under-Display Camera Technology: What It Is?
Many would confuse the under display camera technology with the punch-hole display smartphones. It’s not the same. The punch-hole displays practically have a hole inside the display i.e a dark black hole, or like a capsule as we saw on S10 Plus.
But the under-display camera technology works smartly.
The camera’s there, but you can’t see it. The selfie sensor sits perfectly under the display while you can’t see any hole or a spot or anything.
Xiaomi calls the under-display camera technology “the ultimate solution for a full screen display coexisting with a front camera.” The new technology will helps manufacturers to hide the front-facing camera under the display without leaving any trace.
How Will An In-Display Selfie Camera Work?
The display area over the camera lens is going to be transparent in an instant. When you are going to capture a selfie or make a video call, it will instantaneously go transparent, allowing light to enter and capture a shot or activate the front-facing shooter.
The in-display camera technology basically works around with a transparent display.
The Oppo prototype with an in-display selfie camera was shown off without any visible front-facing camera. The camera is hidden under the display while it can perfectly capture images from within the screen.
As of now, both the Oppo and Xiaomi devices with an under-display selfie camera worked perfectly without any hassle.
Transparent Displays With Under Display Front Camera: Can It Work?
While the companies are yet to announce a date for the official release of the smartphones, it’s also important to understand how will it add up to the price. These under display selfie sensor smartphones have to come with panels with high-transmittance.
This seems like a perfect solution which to a true notch-less smartphones without the need of any additional mechanical parts or hole inside the display.
The displays used for the devices are made using high-transmittance, low-reflective glass.
This allows the smartphone panel to go transparent when needed, allowing the front facing sensor to capture light. As soon as the light enters the space, the smartphone can start capturing images and videos.
