The Samsung Galaxy S22 series will not use under display cameras, says Ice Universe
We know it’s coming, but it’s worth repeating – the Galaxy S22 series will not have a camera under the screen. Samsung released its first phone with a UDC already, but it only shoots in 4 MP resolution and is intended more for video calling. If you really want to take a selfie with the Z Fold3, you can use the 10 MP camera on the cover display (or open the phone and use the main cameras).
From what we hear, the Galaxy S22 and S22 + get a major upgrade to their rear cameras, including a 50 MP main sensor, 12 MP telecamera with actual 3x optical magnification (possibly with variable focal length) and a 12 MP ultra wide module. If the selfie camera is the same 10 MP device with holes, we think many will still be happy with the camera changes.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a similar setup to its predecessor, though with improved telecam cameras. Both will have continuous zoom functionality starting at 3x for one and 10x for the other, along with larger senors with 12 MP resolution. The main and ultra wide cameras may get a few tweaks, but that’s it. The same goes for the 40 MP camera on the front.
If you check our review of the Z Fold3, you will see that the 4 MP camera below the display does not produce flagship photos (but Fold has better ways to take a selfie). So for the Galaxy S series in 2022, Samsung will understandably stick to the proven cameras.
