In recent years, phone screens are getting bigger and the bezels are getting narrower. But where does the selfie camera end up? The design of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 comes with an answer: the front camera disappears under the screen.

‘Samsung tests under-screen camera with Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3’
The Korean ET News reports that Samsung is preparing for the application of a so-called under-display camera (UDC). The website expects the smartphone manufacturer to introduce this UCD technology for the first time in the third quarter of 2021 with the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
Under-screen cameras are not new. Devices from Oppo and Xiaomi already appeared with such a camouflaged camera. Unfortunately, the photos from these cameras are not particularly good. Samsung tackles this problem with a ‘special display design’ that widens pixels across the camera sensor. This allows more light to fall on the lens. The result? A slightly better photo result.
Why does Samsung choose the Galaxy Z Fold 3?
Especially for the Galaxy Z Fold 3, the camera under the screen seems an unnecessary luxury. With the foldable phone, you can just as easily take a selfie with the main camera and outdoor display. Still, Samsung remains determined to include a camera in the inner screen.
Actually, the successor to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is precisely because of this the perfect phone to perfect the technology of under-screen cameras. If the front camera is not entirely satisfactory, users can always use the main camera with outdoor display.
