It Looks like pop-out and slide-out cameras were not just a Stage we experienced 2018.
According to a recent reveal by a Chinese tipster, the Oppo R19 and the Vivo X25, each of which are anticipated to launch in 2019, can sport pop-out cameras with edge-to-edge displays. The said tip also claims that both mobiles are not going to have a back fingerprint scanner, also will contain in-display fingerprint detectors. While there have been a number of innovations to decrease or eliminate the top notch, so far the pop-out camera, slider, along with dual screen options are the only ones that truly gives you a complete display on the front.
The Chinese tipster has revealed this new information based on the components mill mold data for the Oppo R19 and Vivo X25, each of which reveal a pop up camera layout. The difference is that while Oppo are going to have the camera device climbing from the middle of the top panel, the Vivo camera will rise from a bit to the right, again from the top panel. If the devices actually will have in-display fingerprint scanners, then it would be safe to presume that both will also feature OLED displays.
Considering the new trends of waterdrop notches and punch-hole cameras, this remains the only usable option for a real edge-to-edge display, apart from the slider and double display choices.
Last year Oppo had opted for a slide-out camera layout with the Oppo Locate X (Review), which incorporated front camera and detectors. Vivo Nex$31,999 (Inspection ), that was started shortly afterwards, was stated to have a sturdier camera mechanism in contrast.
Though no definite dates are declared by manufacturer, the Oppo R19 is expected to launch sometime in March.
