Do note that you might not be able to buy any OPPO phone with the under-display camera just yet, as the firm admitted the technology will take much more time to reach commercial availability. As per OPPO VP Shen Yiren, the complexity of the under-screen camera will make it very hard to mass produce by the end of this year.
