Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 May Feature an Under-Display Camera

Samsung has been teasing the development of its under-display camera (UDC) for quite a while. But we weren’t sure, which flagship device from Samsung will be the first one to get it. Many of us thought and assumed that the Galaxy S21 series will be the first one to get it but a recent report from ETNews claims that Samsung is going to introduce the under-display camera (UDC) on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 which will most probably launch in the third quarter of 2021.

The under-display camera has been showcased by several brands within the past couple of years. However, ZTE is currently the sole manufacturer that gives a smartphone featuring the technology. However, Xiaomi is within the process of mass-producing the third-generation under-display camera for its smartphone models from 2021. Another OEM likely to hitch ZTE and Xiaomi is Samsung.

That’s consistent with South Korean site ETNews, which claims that Samsung is getting to include an under-display camera within the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, a phone that’s likely to land towards the top of 2021. So if you were hoping for this tech within the Samsung Galaxy S21 range, you’re probably out of luck.

As the report says, “Samsung Electronics plans to solve the issue with a special display design. “It is heard that Samsung Electronics is designing a display that has wider pixel spacing in the area where UDC will be placed in order to secure opening ratio and so that there will not be an issue with taking pictures.” said one industry official who is familiar with the situation.”

As technology is developing and evolving every day, the change is going to very common in a couple of years. Most of the OEMs will try to grab the opportunity to provide its user a full display experience, without bezels, without the notch, with the help of the under-display cameras.

As we already have seen the same thing happening with under-display fingerprint sensors. Most of the OEMs have already adopted and the rest are in process.
