Opopo has unveiled next-generation screen camera (USC) technology for smartphones. The company offers this new development “a perfect balance between continuous screen quality and camera image quality.” He says many innovations are needed, some of which include reducing the size of each pixel, using a clear wire material rather than a traditional screen, and driving a 1 to 1 pixel circuit. Opopo shared images of a prototype device that captures the new full-screen camera, providing a truly full-screen experience.
For some time now, companies have been trying to figure out how to get the most out of a selfie camera. While some smartphone manufacturers offer a full screen experience, they have come up with a pop-up camera design that adds more weight to the phone and introduces moving parts that can be damaged by dust buildup or other factors. A selfie camera under the screen seems to be a better solution to provide a truly full screen experience and ZTE has previously released two smartphones (Axon 20 and Axon 30) on-screen camera, but they had weaknesses such as poor image quality and the sensor was not completely hidden.
In 2019, Opopo reverted to a device with a very clear pixel position with a screen above the camera lens. The device has not yet been marketed, but now the company has announced the second USS technology, which is said to provide “perfect balance between serial screen quality and camera image quality.” Opopo combines hardware innovation and proprietary artificial intelligence (II) algorithms to maintain the reliability and consistency of the display when the camera is not in use.

Opopo was able to achieve this by reducing the number of pixels without reducing the number of pixels. The company used a clear wire material or display instead of the traditional screen. High-precision production provides “excellent display quality with a smooth viewing experience,” says Op. Opo is using 1 to 1 pixel circuit drive for continuous screen color and brightness, which means that one pixel circuit is driving only one pixel and not two, the company is an industry standard. This allows you to control the display brightness and color accuracy by about 2 percent. Finally, 1 to 1 pixel circuit driving technology can also improve the screen life by up to 50 percent.
The Chinese company shared some images of a prototype smartphone with USC. The display is free of any notifications or pitfalls, and there are no engine parts. At least from the images provided by OPO, it looks very flawless and impossible to know where the selfie camera is under the screen.
From now on, Popo will not share the USS technology with the public. He says he will continue research and development to further optimize his on-screen camera technology.
