A few months ago, Samsung was expected to be the first manufacturer to launch a smartphone with a selfie camera hidden under the screen. However, that is completely unlikely after ZTE – a well-known phone brand in China, launched the Axon A20 5G with selfie camera hidden under the screen on September 1.
For now, the company is still working on developing an under-screen selfie camera on its Galaxy flagship models in the future, albeit facing some challenges.
Concept Galaxy S21 with selfie camera hidden under the screen.
According to the leak specialist Ice UniverseSamsung is one step ahead, and its in-display camera technology is far superior to the solutions we’ve seen so far.
However, Samsung has stricter requirements for the camera under the screen than other brands. That is why they want to improve this technology even better. That’s also why we won’t see it on the Galaxy S21 (S30).
Ross Young – Display Supply Chain Consultants supply chain manager, is also confident that the camera technology hidden under the screen of Samsung will be launched next year. If the company doesn’t equip it for the Galaxy S21, we will likely see it on the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
iPhone 13 will no longer “rabbit ears?
While it seems to be very loyal to the notched display, Apple is also working on the camera hidden under the display. Like analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, leak specialist Ice Universe also thinks that Apple is ready to roll out the technology next year.
The successor to the iPhone 12 may not have “rabbit ears”, instead a selfie camera hidden below the screen. These speculations are completely consistent with the iPhone patent without “rabbit ears” was granted last year. In addition, Apple is also said to be developing an in-display Touch ID fingerprint sensor to replace Face ID.
