The under-display camera is one of the most anticipated technologies in the mobile phone industry, perhaps more anticipated than the foldable display. Because this is not a niche solution. Ever since the mobile phone industry adopted ultra-narrow bezel screens and notch style designs and water drop designs, smartphone users have been eagerly waiting for the camera under the display to become a reality.
Now, Samsung Display seems to be ready to bring under-display camera technology to users. The company recently applied for the UPC (Under Panel Camera) trademark at KIPO (Korea Intellectual Property Office).
The UPC / Under Panel Camera trademark relates to smart phone displays and TV display panels, but according to previous news from Samsung, UPC technology will be adopted in more fields including portable computers. Samsung’s first product with UPC technology may be an OLED notebook, but there are countless other potential use cases.
We understand that integrating the camera inside the display will enable Samsung to make devices with narrower bezels. In theory, this technology can even allow Samsung to install multiple front cameras on smart devices without worrying about ruining the design or drilling too many holes in the display.
Samsung’s determination to bring UPC technology to the public is almost obvious, but it will take time to prove how this new technology compares with traditional solutions in the real world, and the current details of the technology are also very limited.
Such a mechanism was shown by other brands as well. But all of them were semi successful prototypes. Do you think that Samsung has it in them to properly build and release such a UPC technology?
