According to a tweet from noted leaker Ice Universe, we likely know something about the upcoming flagship smartphone. As per the tweet, the company is likely planning to use the under-screen camera technology with the upcoming smartphone. Samsung is currently “considering” the use of technology. As part of the consideration, the company is evaluating the “feasibility of the technology”. The launch of an under-display camera sensor will only happen if things progress as planned.

A report from GSMArena also highlighted the challenges that come with the under-screen camera technology. First up is the lack of lighting reaching the sensor for images. Introducing this technology is likely to hit the image quality from the selfie sensor. Another area of concern is the pixel density of the screen on the top of the camera sensor.

It is worth noting that Samsung is not the only company that is working on this technology. Other players such as Oppo, Xiaomi and Huawei are working on perfecting this behind the scenes. In fact, Oppo has also showcased a working prototype of such a design.
