If you can remember, Oppo was among the very few companies to offer a clever alternative to the not-so-much loved notch design by introducing the pop-up selfie camera. But that’s now past as the company is now looking to bring a true notchless smartphone, no pop-up, no not notch, a true all-screen smartphone.

Oppo has somehow managed the room under the display, and this is where the selfie cameras will be fitted in. Oppo’s first-ever under-the-display selfie camera phone could launch on June 26 during MWC Shanghai, according to an image posted on Weibo.

That said, since the image didn’t come from any official source, it can so happen that you don’t get to see Oppo launching the true all-screen smartphone at the event in China. But, irrespective of what the truth behind the device, Oppo has been seen playing around with the under-the-display selfie camera module. The company filed a patent for the same last year.

Oppo’s Twitter handle also corroborates the same story. Giving the first look of its under-the-display selfie camera module, Oppo tweeted, “For those seeking the perfect, notchless smartphone screen experience – prepare to be amazed.”

Arch rival Xiaomi also showcased their take on the under-the-display selfie camera technology. But the rumor of it launching the smartphone with the technology is not as strong as that of the Oppo.

At this moment, we can neither confirm nor reject the likelihood of Oppo launching its first-ever under-the-display selfie camera smartphone at the MWC Shanghai event. The best we can do is wait until June 26.
