Ive had an idea, central screen selfie cameras

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, Xiaomi and Oppo have recently shown a selfie camera under the screen at the too 

Do you guys know of any selfie cameras which lie under the screen closer to the middle because this seems like a really good idea. 

My idea is that the camera would lie about 1/3 of the way from the top of the screen instead of the top like in all phones. It would be essentially underneath the middle of the screen. 


This would benefit the user because


1) when taking selfies the camera would be close to the person's eyes meaning they would therefore be looking into the camera in a more natural position as they would be looking them selves in the eye 

2) No notch 

3) Video calling somone would make eye contact easier as you could actually look at someone and therefore be looking directly into the camera

4) The sensor could be much larger as there is no bezel or notch to try to reduce the size of allowing the selfie camera to be as good as the other camera on a phone. 



I dunno


What do you think, please let me know.

Youd have to thicken up the phone quite a bit to make room for the battery, or lose battery capacity. The regained space isnt really there by moving it as the camera already is traditionally on top of other components.

Brands I wholeheartedly reccomend (though do have flawed products): Apple, Razer, Corsair, Asus, Gigabyte, bequiet!, Noctua, Fractal, GSkill (RAM only)

i imagine they put the camera in the top coz of the battery. have to find a "tear down" of the product to confirm.

Good point. Maybe there could be a work around to that. Who knows, this is a hypothetical idea.
