Bezels have shrunk in the last few years of smartphone design and with that a battle to minimize the area taken up by the front-facing camera. With Samsung going for its first under-display selfie camera on this unit, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 may take things a step further too.
We’ve seen under-display cameras before, but they haven’t been particularly great with the actual photos from them. Samsung would use some “special display design” to resolve this issue, which widens the pixels over the camera sensor, allowing more light to get through and in turn, take a better photo.
I do not even see the value of the inner selfie camera as someone who has been using a Galaxy Z Fold 2 for the past few months, because you can still just use the main camera with the outer display to get a better quality shot. If Samsung is dead set on including a camera on the inner monitor, however, hiding it seems like a perfect way to do so completely.
The awkward placement of the camera of the Fold 2 alone also means that it makes all the more sense that before going to other devices, Samsung will try to implement this technology on its successor.
