Realme smartphone with a sub-screen camera coming next year
The possibility of implementing a sub-screen camera in smartphones has been discussed for a long time. But the unpleasant fact is that the path from conversations to the final implementation of the idea is not a short one. True, ZTE decided to be a pioneer and has already rolled out the first smartphone with a camera under the screen – the Axon 20 5G. There was a minor scam on the part of the manufacturer as the implementation of the solution is not as good as you may expect.
It is known for sure that Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi and Oppo are working on the technology of the sub-screen camera. And Realme wants to be among the pioneers and carriers of innovations. They strive not to lose the race for the Xiaomi subscreen camera. True, Realme is unlikely to create something of its own. it will most likely adopt what will be created in the Oppo laboratories.
Nevertheless, one of the leaders of Realme has already posted a photo on the network with a hint that “we can also do it with a subscreen camera”. However, it is not worth waiting for the announcement of such a smartphone this year. Reliable source Digital Chat Station has announced that the mass production of under-display cameras for Realme’s needs will start next year. Next year promises a boom in smartphones with a camera under the display, and let’s see which of the manufacturers will be able to implement this solution better than others.
