At the rear, there will be a triple camera with a 48-megapixel Samsung GM1 main module, a wide-angle unit based on an 8-megapixel Hynix Hi846 sensor and a 2-megapixel macro module.
The smartphone will have a rechargeable battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh with support for 18-watt charging. A side fingerprint scanner is also present.
The Oppo device will join the range of available devices, but the exact price has not yet been disclosed.

Oppo showed a new generation sub-display camera
Earlier this month, Oppo has announced the latest version of the technology that allows the selfie camera module to be placed under the displays of smartphones without compromising the integrity of the screen. Unlike earlier variants using a lower pixel density display at the camera location; Oppo decided to take an alternative approach – using smaller pixels.
Thanks to this, the OLED panel retains image clarity, indistinguishable to the naked eye – 400 pixels per inch. According to Oppo, users “will see little or no difference between the sub-camera area and the rest of the screen during daily use; this will provide a significantly more immersive visual experience.”
The company showed off an image of a prototype smartphone. Additionally, Oppo presented a sample photo taken with the sub-screen camera. But, we can see image defects even in a specially selected photos.
However, in the latest ZTE Axon 30, the sub-screen camera technology has already been improved; and the display provides a screen resolution equal to Oppo’s solution of 400 dpi. In addition, the new Axon uses a better quality camera module than the previous version.
Oppo has been working on sub-display cameras for several years; the first prototype of the corresponding smartphone was demonstrated back at the MWC Shanghai in 2019. Now it remains to wait for the moment when the company will finally be able to integrate the technology into a commercial device. So far, the company has not even demonstrated a working prototype of the smartphone.
