Smartphone makers have been trying to launch a smartphone with a full display body on the front for years now. Various methods have been adopted so far like the punch hole selfie camera or the pop-up mechanism.
Tech giant Samsung might have found another new method of hiding the selfie camera in the display.
As per reports, Samsung describes a device that has its selfie shooter to be completely hidden when not in use. For this, the South Korean tech giant detailed a complicated method.
Looking into this unique mechanism, the company aims at having the screen be transparent at a particular area where the camera is housed. Although, a secondary display is placed directly under this transparent area to cover the camera when not in use.
At the moment, the next expected technology to hit the market will most likely be the under-display selfie shooter. But this unique method takes away the issue of quality that affects devices with under-display selfie cameras.
This new technology might be seen in a future Samsung flagship handset. Unfortunately, it will likely not be seen in the Galaxy S21 series but could be featured in the Galaxy S22 lineup, which would launch in 2022.
Though that is just speculation and we have no way of knowing if the company is actively working on this technology for a smartphone lineup.
