As per a recent show with a Chinese tipster, the Oppo R19 and the Vivo X25, both of which are expected to release in 2019, can sport pop-out cameras with edge-to-edge displays. The stated tip also asserts that both mobiles are not going to have a back fingerprint scanner, and will contain in-display fingerprint sensors. While there have been a number of innovations to decrease or remove the top notch, so far the pop-out camera, slider, along with double screen options are the only ones which truly provides you a full screen on the front.
The Chinese tipster has shown this new information depending on the components mill mold data for the Oppo R19 and Vivo X25, each of which reveal a pop-up camera layout. The distinction is that while Oppo are going to have the camera unit rising from the middle of the top panel, the Vivo camera will rise from a bit to the right, again in the top panel. If the apparatus actually will have in-display fingerprint scanners, then it’d be safe to assume that both will even feature OLED screens.
Thinking about the new trends of waterdrop notches along with punch-hole cameras, this is still the only usable choice for a real edge-to-edge screen, aside from the slider and double screen options.
Last year Oppo had opted for a slide-out camera layout with the Oppo Locate X (Review), which incorporated the front camera and sensors. The layout was nevertheless criticised for not being a fantastic long-term use option. Vivo Nex$31,999 (Review), that was started soon afterwards, was stated to have a sturdier camera mechanism in contrast.
Although no definite dates are declared by either manufacturer, the Oppo R19 is expected to debut sometime in March.
