The sensor under the slab remains invisible, but it seems to be working fine. Indeed, towards the end of the video, a person puts his finger on it, thus blocking the view.

Oppo and Xiaomi take a decisive step

Shortly after Oppo, Xiaomi responded with their own video with similar technology. The film compare two devices : the first has a notch, while the second does not. A person grabs the second device and takes a small selfie.

A few years ago, manufacturers already installed the fingerprint sensor under the slab. A current technology today and found especially on the P30 Pro from Huawei or the Galaxy S10 from Samsung. Some also use vibrating screens as a loudspeaker. By moving the camera, manufacturers will really offer a “borderless” phone.
