It is still not clear which smartphone will mark the debut of this highly impressive tech. But, one of the images show the prototype phone next to the Oppo Find X. The latest offering comes with sharper corners and a squarish shape compared to the Find X. Unlike most smartphones, the prototype doesn't have the power button or volume rockers on the sides, which hints that the phone could come with interactive virtual buttons.

The tech hides the front camera under the display just like the fingerprint scanner. The users can click the images by tapping on the screen.

Ice Universe claimed that the tech will also be seen on other upcoming smartphones like the Huawei Mate 30 Pro and Vivo Nex 3 this year.
