Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 3 could sport the company’s first under-display camera


As the world returns to some type of normalcy, the concept of time seems to be speeding back up, and this means we’re barreling towards the potential launch of the Galaxy Z Fold 3. In recent weeks, we’ve been learning more and more about Samsung’s next foldable flagship, the phone that could end up replacing the Galaxy Note altogether in the future.

One of the biggest complaints when it comes to the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is the lack of a camera system that is worthy of the steep price tag. If the latest leak is to be believed, that all could change. According to leaker @FrontTron on Twitter, we’ll have a total of five cameras on the Z Fold 3, with a trio of 12MP sensors on the back. Samsung is said to be providing a wide-angle Sony IMX374 sensor for the main camera, a 2x telephoto sensor, and a12MP ultra-wide camera.

While that’s all fine and dandy, the real story here comes via the two “selfie” cameras that the Z Fold 3 will be equipped with. The camera used on the cover display will be a 10MP IMX374 lens, while the folding display will make use of a 16MP IMX471 camera. But instead of being another hole-punch camera like the cover display and what you’ll find on the current Z Fold 2, this 16MP camera will be an “Under Panel Camera”.

Samsung recently showed off this technology with a promotional video showing off what other types of foldable and rollable displays would look like on different devices. In the application used during the video, the camera was embedded into the top of the display but allowed for the dual-screened device to hide the camera beneath the content being viewed. This allowed for ultra-thin bezels and it’s here where we can envision something similar for the Z Fold 3.

We’re hoping that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will make the strides it needs to in order to become a true flagship. Under normal circumstances, the Galaxy Note would provide some upgrades and improvements over the previously-launched Galaxy S series of phones. But we’re still too far away from knowing enough to determine if this is the same plan of attack for the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
