According to Korean media, Samsung is ready to start mass production of under-screen selfie cameras. Next year will appear in the kit of the first smartphone.
Samsung has long time been working on a front camera that would be completely hidden under the surface of an OLED-type display. Efforts, as it turns out, are bearing fruit, and the Korean concern itself is ready to start mass production of new cameras.
If all goes according to plan, Samsung plans to produce 30 thousand pieces of UDC (Under Display Camera) every month. The first smartphone equipped with such a module should be presented next year.
Samsung faces a big technological challenge. OLED panels, however, are largely transparent, however, distort the light coming to the camera located behind it, reducing the quality of the recorded image. The Korean giant is working on a solution to this problem. First, it prepares the OLED screen as transparent as possible, and secondly, it creates algorithms that programmatically minimize the resulting distortion.
