1. A display device, comprising:
a backlight module;
a display panel comprising a display surface; and
a camera on a side of the display panel away from the display surface,
wherein the display device defines a display area for displaying images and a light transmission area surrounded by the display area, and the camera is in the light transmission area to collect image information through the light transmission area;
wherein the display panel is on a side of the backlight module from which light exits, the backlight module defines a mounting hole extending through the backlight module, the mounting hole is in the light transmission area, and the camera is in the mounting hole;
the display panel comprises an array substrate, a color filter substrate opposite to the array substrate, and a liquid crystal layer between the array substrate and the color filter substrate;
the array substrate comprises a thin film transistor layer, the thin film transistor layer is in the display area and is not in the light transmission area;
the liquid crystal layer is in the display area and the light transmission area;
the color filter substrate comprises a first substrate, a black matrix and a filter layer, the black matrix and the filter layer are on a surface of the first substrate close to the liquid crystal layer, the black matrix and the filter layer are in the display area, and are not in the light transmission area;
the color filter substrate further comprises a transparent protective layer, a projection of the transparent protective layer on the array substrate covers the display area and the light transmission area;
a portion of the transparent protective layer in the light transmission area is on the surface of the first substrate close to the liquid crystal layer, a portion of the transparent protective layer in the display area covers the black matrix and the filter layer and is in direct contact with the black matrix and the filter layer, and the transparent protective layer defines a recess toward the first substrate aligning with the light transmission area.
