Phone innovation has been at an all-time high in the past couple of years, with new models akin to the pop-up camera, under-display fingerprint technology, and waterfall screens, and a lot more. The most recent patents filed by Oppo suggest it will have a display that’s curved at all edges. This could be possible due to another technology that Oppo has further patented: placing sensors beneath the screen.
The patents define a light sensor and another infrared light sensor, both of which might perform from under the screen. This would remove the need for a bezel to accommodate the sensors, one for adjusting the display brightness to the ambient light while the other turns the display off in a call, respectively. This technology might work with both a Micro LED or an OLED screen.
A few months ago, Oppo showed off an unreleased device with a waterfall display, however, the idea of creating all four edges swoop towards the body isn’t a new one. Xiaomi patented a similar gadget with four curved edges back in February.
Oppo further teased an under-display camera main up to MWC Shanghai. This exhibits the corporate’s efforts to create a smartphone with a 100% screen-to-body ratio eventually.
