Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3’s under-display camera to offer improved light transmittance
There is plenty of talk that Samsung will announce its first under-display camera on a smartphone with the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold3. Tipster IceUniverse adds some clarity to the matter by addressing a key factor in the image quality of such sensors – light transmission. Based on his tip, the Galaxy Z Fold3’s UD camera will bring over 40% better light transmission than any other camera of this type so far.
Fold3’s UPC transmission is as high as 40% +, which is much higher than any other UPC solution you’ve ever seen.

For reference, the only commercially available phone with a UD camera is ZTE’s Axon 20, so it’s probably the device that serves for comparison in the above statements. Z Fold3 is said to have already started mass production and we expect to see its debut sometime next month.

The fold-out case packs a 16MP Sony IMX 471 front-facing camera hidden under its 7.55-inch LTPO AMOLED main screen. The smaller exterior display will apparently pack a 10MP secondary selfie shooter, while the back will likely reuse last year’s three 12MP sensors.
