Future of the front cameras – Samsung sees them under the display

Smartphones have made huge progress in the last few years. Since there is no end in sight for the further development, the front should now be optimized. At best, the front is a pure display, but then the camera disturbs, which cannot be ignored.

Solutions for the front display

To solve the problem with the front camera, there are many different approaches from manufacturers. From the pop-up camera to the hole in the display, everything is there. The previous solutions probably seem to bother smartphone users. The smartphone manufacturers are therefore working on ever newer and innovative solutions. Samsung is thinking of a solution that puts the camera behind the display. The manufacturer has patented the whole thing, to be on the safe side. The patent was originally discovered by LetsGoDigital. Here’s what it looks like:

Samsung’s solution is that there is a small transparent hole on the front, under which the camera is located. When not in use, a small display piece is moved in front of the camera.

Front camera almost invisible

Samsung’s solution makes the front camera almost invisible. The manufacturer has already been working on this for a few months, because initial tests have shown that the quality suffers under the solution. Samsung therefore only wants to equip a few models with the new UDC technology (under-display camera). According to ET News, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be the first model with the new technology. The advantage of the new UDC technology is that the entire display can be used. That is at least true as long as the camera is not in use. The display for the new UDC technology is provided by the Samsung Display division and the image sensor comes from Samsung Electronics System LSI. However, interested buyers will have to wait a bit longer. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 will probably not be released until the third quarter of this year.
