Under display camera technology has been heralded as the solution to notches and hole cut outs in smartphone displays. While the ZTE Axon 20 5G is now the only phone with an under-display selfie camera, the tech is expected to become slightly more common by the end of this year.

While many companies have showcased their prototypes of smartphones featuring an under display camera on the front, Samsung had also been rumored to be working on the same technology as well. Samsung is one of the big guys, playing with the under-display selfie camera concept. The big Galaxy Unpacked event is happening as we type this article but there is other important news coming from the Korean tech giant.

Samsung Display showed off a product preview of the Samsung Blade Bezel laptop on its Weibo page, and one of the USP's of this laptop is the under-display camera. UPC (Under Panel Camera) seems to be heading to Samsung's OLED laptops first. Thanks thanks to the added screen real estate from the removed bezels, the laptop is advertised as having a 93% screen-to-body ratio. This laptop makes use of a Samsung OLED display instead of the usual LCDs, and also manages to incorporate an under-display camera. With Chinese OEMs first to market with the technology, all eyes have been on Samsung with expectations high that it will introduce the technology on the Galaxy Z Fold3 later this year.
