Samsung's Galaxy S21 to miss out on under display camera, Z Fold3 to premiere it

Ivan, 05 October 2020

It appears that Samsung won't be able to premiere an under display camera on the Galaxy S21 (possibly named Galaxy S30) series, due to low production yield of the technology. The information comes from a report by Korean outlet TheElec.

Samsung allegedly aimed to deliver an under display camera on the Galaxy Z Fold2, before targeting and ultimately missing the deployment of the tech on the 2021 Galaxy S series. Samsung is reportedly working on a better solution for the under display camera that won't compromise as much on image quality as current technology.
