Ice Universe, a well-known whistleblower, has announced that five major companies in the tech world are launching below-the-screen cameras.
Sub-Screen Camera, For quite some time now, various companies have been offering various designs for the location of the smartphone selfie camera. The ultimate goal is for users to be able to make the most of the screen space; For this reason, they try to place the camera in places that are not visible.
According to mspoweruser , one of the proposed selfie camera designs is Under-Display Camera. Devices designed in this way are equipped with a semi-transparent, but functional OLED screen, behind which the camera is hidden.
Unfortunately, so far our first experiences working with devices equipped with a selfie camera under the screen have not been pleasant; Because the quality and resolution of the recorded images are generally unsatisfactory.
However, technology is always evolving and different products evolve over time. The latest tweet from Ice Universe, a well-known whistleblower in the tech world, brings good news for selfie camera lovers below the screen(Sub-Screen Camera).
According to the tweet, at least five major global companies are launching the technology with their products. Ice Universe tweeted:
The second half of the year is when the Under Display Camera officially debuts, including at least Samsung (folding), Xiaomi (MIX4), OPPO (folding), vivo and ZTE (greatly improved version)
The second half of the year is when the Under Display camera officially launches; Including at least Samsung (folding), Xiaomi (MIX4), Oppo (folding), Vivo and ZTE (highly improved version).
As you can see in the text, Ice Universe refers to the new generation of Samsung clamshell phones, the Galaxy Z Flip 3. Also, with the release of a rendering of the Z Flip without a selfie camera, it showed that this device will probably be the first Samsung smartphone to use this technology.
Of course, Samsung will not be alone in this; Because it is said that other companies will also enter this game; Including Xiaomi with Mi Mix 4 and Oppo with clamshell phone and ZTE with a much improved version of Next Axon .
Samsung researchers point out that they use artificial intelligence to solve UD camera shooting problems ; But it remains to be seen whether they will be able to produce a device that is ahead of other examples in the tech world.
Your comment companions on the camera is the screen? Do these efforts to improve it make sense and will it work?
