Samsung Galaxy S21 is most likely going to come without under-display camera. According to news report this week, the company is not satisfied with the efficiency of the technology. And during its test, the results were far from convincing. All this has made sure Samsung is not going to use the under-display camera for its upcoming Galaxy phone next year.

Samsung uses its in-house Display division to make screens for its smartphone. They used the hole in active area (HIAA) method to drill the camera into the display. This quite nicely on the Galaxy S20 series, which came with punch hole front camera. And same happened with the Galaxy Note 20 as well. But while integrating the camera under the display, the company did not get positive signs to ahead with it in mass production.


The under-display technology is the latest feature to make its way in the market. We already have the ZTE Axon 20 5G that comes equipped with camera under the display. The likes of Xiaomi and Oppo are likely to follow suit in the coming months. And most of you might have expected Samsung to join the ranks. But the latest development has forced the company to change its plan. And honestly, when you are not sure about adding something, it's better to leave it in the early stage itself. All this suggests, the under-display tech could feature in the next Galaxy Z Fold device.
