Samsung in 2018 made a demo on the future of phone design showing the built-in camera under the screen.
And one executive said the following year: The technology could be ready for use in smartphones in the next two years.
The companies had to discover innovative ways to integrate the front camera into the race to reduce more bezels from the smartphone.
And while the pop-up camera was great when it came out, it quickly disappeared once the year turned around, with all companies favoring pinhole cameras, citing space constraints.
The next solution to this problem was to use the cameras under the screen, and it seems that Samsung is now ready with the built-in camera under its first screen, but the strange thing is that the product is not a phone, but a laptop.
And Samsung Display offered Teaser For the laptop called Samsung Blade Bezel through its account on the Weibo platform, and one of the unique features of this laptop is the camera technology at the bottom of the screen.
The Samsung Blade Bezel is said to have a near bezel-free screen with a 93 percent screen-to-body ratio.
This laptop uses an OLED screen instead of the usual LCD screens, and the screen is only 1 mm thick and weighs 130 grams, which contributes to the overall thin and light appearance of the laptop.
The company promises that this technology, called UPC, can make the laptop’s edges smaller without having to change the location of its webcam, while also making the OLED screen itself thinner and lighter.
Under-screen cameras have grabbed the attention of device manufacturers for a few years now, with several companies showing their prototypes including this camera.
ZTE has launched a smartphone with an under-display camera, the ZTE Axon 20 5G, although practical experience indicates that there is still room to improve the quality of the camera.
It is also rumored that Samsung is planning to bring this type of camera to the Galaxy Z Fold 3, so it is surprising that the company integrates this technology into its laptop before the flagship phone can provide it.
This step may be logical, as the image quality through the first generation of these cameras located under the screen is not great, so adding it to the flagship phone at the beginning may be very risky.
On the other hand, laptops suffer from the low quality of built-in front cameras, despite their importance in the era of the Corona virus, Most laptop cameras may not meet the standards required at this time.
