“This would enable Samsung to completely do away with notches and offer a full-screen experience, which is perfect for a foldable form factor”
Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is widely-rumoured to launch later this year and now a new report from South Korean media claims that the upcoming foldable phone is codenamed “Champ” and will be Samsung’s under-display camera technology. If this is indeed true, the Galaxy Fold 2 would become the first smartphone from Samsung to come with such technology. This would enable the company to completely do away with notches and offer a full-screen experience, which is perfect for a foldable form factor.
Furthermore, unlike Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo, Samsung is yet to demonstrate its in-display camera technology. However, the brands are yet to launch their first commercial phone with such a technology and given the picture quality is still not on the levels of a traditional sensor, it could be a while before they do. Honor and OnePlus are also reportedly working on similar technology. Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is the company’s latest foldable phone after the Galaxy Fold from 2019. It has a design similar to the Motorola Razr (2019) but without the crease.
