Under Screen Cameras are as scary as they’re cool!

If you’ve not been living under a rock for a while, you might have seen or heard about the under-screen camera (USC). Few smartphone OEMs have publicly shown few prototypes and the reaction to that is pretty positive. If haven’t seen them, you can see them here.
Today we’ll see both sides of the coin and discuss both the positive and negative aspects of USC.

 

Positive Aspect:
Goodbye Ugly Notches, You WON’T be remembered:
Notches are hideous and ugly, be it of any design (excluding the one on Pixel 3 XL). For most of the people, their phone is their main computer, media consumption device and nine thousand five hundred and ninety-nine other things where the main interacting part is the screen and all of our favorite blocks a big chunk of it. With USC, we can have the whole front of the phone all covered with screens and don’t need to miss content. It is even more hated since people were willing to wait and there were no problems with bezels. It’s like an unwanted child ūüėú.
Better Video Calls:
Vidoe calls are the primary source by which people communicate these days. Generally, in video calls, people tend to look at the camera which in turn makes the conversation unnatural to an extent cause there is no eye to eye contact. Similarly, if someone looks into the caller’s eyes the other person can’t look back. It’s currently either this or that, but if we can put the camera in the center the whole problem is solved.

 

Negative Aspects:
Privacy Concerns:

Everything has merits and demerits, while USC is cool and futuristic, it also brings major privacy concern. Since the camera is not visible, it can be used to spy on people. let’s assume you’re in your hotel room and you’re doing your thing, whatever that thing is, you do it thinking everything is safe and secure in there. But, you might not be aware that the TV in your room has a camera under the screen and everything you are doing is being captured. This might seem paranoid but how knows others’ intentions. In this age of the Internet, we’ve given up on privacy and with the development of

this sort of technology, it might be even more difficult.

 

THE VERDICT:
Technology keeps evolving and none can do anything about that. If you don’t evolve, you’ll be left out (Goodbye good old’ Headphone Jack). As it seems, it’s the time for the bezel-less screen. For that, we’ve to give up something: the bezel, even though they are convenient to hold and don’t cause accidental touches. As smartphone sales have plateaued, smartphone makers are constantly looking for ways to make you upgrade from your perfectly fine phone and it has come to this. USC is here to stay and in my opinion, it’s a welcome change.
