How does an under-display camera work? The concept behind the under-display camera is quite interesting. Keeping it simple and easy, here is a quick working behind this. It is going to be a regular display with a maximum screen to body ratio. And the camera will be placed underneath it. So whenever the user switches to the selfie camera, the display above the camera portion will become transparent. Thus it will act as normal glass and allowing the camera to shoot stunning selfies. The main trouble is to deal with the display. However, the company hasn’t revealed which material is being used in the display. This concept can be soon seen in the upcoming generation of phones.
