As the video shows, the under-screen camera isn't just an idea on paper; it's a functional feature. Users will see a short animation highlighting the position of the front-facing camera during selfie mode. Otherwise, it's invisible while watching videos, playing games, reading emails, making video calls with friends and family.
The tweet gained international media attention as the solution of removing the notch has been widely discussed online since the release of the OPPO Find X in June 2018.

On Chinese social media platform Weibo, OPPO Global Vice President Brian Shen shared the technology to his 1 million + followers – noting his excitement and intrigue for future developments.
This isn't the first time OPPO has pushed the envelope when it comes to solutions for innovative camera and full screen technologies hand-in-hand. The recently released OPPO Reno Series gained a lot of media attention over its Pivot Rising Camera structure and 10x Zoom (On OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Model, recently receiving a 60x digital zoom software update).

In June 2018, the Find X model was unveiled with a 93.8% screen to body ratio a Stealth 3D camera and custom FaceKey AI technology - the epitome of OPPO’s quest to showcase the true beauty of technology.
While the OPPO Find X is no doubt a flagship device, these innovations also trickle down in to other models such as the OPPO F11 Pro, championed for its Rising Camera and nighttime photo performance.
OPPO’s focus on mechanical and alternative technologies to solve camera, screen ratio and aesthetical problems with smartphones started as early as 2013 with the release of the OPPO N1 – The World’s first rotating camera smartphone and its later, motorized iteration the OPPO N3.
