Samsung’s first-ever under-display selfie camera phone to be Galaxy Z Fold 3

Samsung is working on the Galaxy Z Fold 3, a top-of-the-line flexible smartphone that, if all goes well, will arrive next year, and promises to be packed with some of the biggest advancements in the industry.

The Galaxy Z Fold 3 will presumably maintain the same design base that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 has, but this does not mean that it cannot bring some modifications to achieve a more polished and attractive finish. Regardless, these changes should be small, or maybe even minimal.

In addition to the update that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will receive at the specification level, it is rumored that this smartphone will be the first from Samsung to be equipped with an integrated camera under the screen. This path is one of the most important for the smartphone sector, but it is also one of the most complicated.

Integrating the camera under the screen poses a number of challenges because of the impact it has on image quality, and also because of the increased costs that it entails. According to new information, Samsung has managed to find a way to improve image quality by integrating the camera into the screen, and thanks to that you can make the leap with your Galaxy Z Fold 3 to a design with a clean front.

An “insider” has commented that Samsung Display has managed to develop a screen that will work perfectly with an integrated camera in it, thanks to the use of pixels with a larger space between them, an advance that will be complemented with algorithms that will improve the camera quality, essential to correct the refraction effect produced by the OLED screen layer. That space between pixels will only be greater in the area where the integrated camera will be placed so as not to compromise the quality of the screen.

It will be interesting to see what results Samsung achieves with that new screen, and what price the Galaxy Z Fold 3 ends up having. Its price may not increase compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 2, but the use of this new technology seems to indicate the opposite (that it will be more expensive).
