The last few years have been marked by an insatiable desire to develop smartphones with screens without interruption. However, there is a new challenge that few manufacturers have yet managed to overcome: placing the front camera under the screen.
Samsung, it seems, is about a year from joining this restricted range. This taking into account the new rumors that indicate that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be the first device of the brand with a camera built into the screen.
This means that neither the Samsung Galaxy S21, nor the Galaxy Note 21, will feature the same technology. Although nothing has been mentioned, it seems that these two models will continue to have an Infinity-O screen.
Samsung will not be able to develop a front camera built into the screen in time for the Galaxy S21
Earlier we saw some rumors indicating that the Samsung Galaxy S21 could bring a camera built into the screen. However, it seems that the South Korean is facing some technical problems that will not allow her to complete the process in time for her next top of the range.
In order to place the camera under the screen, Samsung is working on a technology that aims to make several tiny holes in the screen where the light can pass. There is also a concern to ensure that the image does not get distorted to the camera’s sensor.
This is a complex method and, for the time being, it still cannot reach enough production numbers to satisfy the demand for a model like the Galaxy S21 or Note 21. Therefore, it is understandable that the South Korean wants to debut the technology in its next foldable.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, like its predecessors, will not be an equipment for the masses. Its high price puts it out of reach for many users, so Samsung won’t have to worry about building several million units.
