A new report from a South Korean news outlet tells us that the Samsung Galaxy S22 series might not feature an under-display selfie camera. Poor yields, combined with less than ideal image quality, prompted Samsung to take the step. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is still on track to debut the technology.

Based on what we know so far, the Samsung Galaxy S22 series has many exciting features in store for us. Among other things, the smartphones are expected to ship with an under-display selfie camera. However, a new South Korean news outlet report says users may have to wait a bit longer before seeing the tech in action on a Galaxy S series device.

It seems that Samsung could not make enough screens for the Galaxy S22 series that support an under-display selfie camera. Furthermore, the quality of images captured by the camera module was also not up to spec. On the other hand, panels for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 are held to a different standard and are manufactured on a separate production line. Therefore, the foldable will still feature a UDC (under-display camera).

Thankfully, there are plenty of things to look forward to on the Galaxy S22 Ultra. For starters, it is expected to ship with Samsung's yet-to-be-announced 200MP camera module, along with continuous zoom on the telephoto lens. Then there's Samsung's rumored collaboration with Olympus. Lastly, the AMD-branded GPU on the upcoming Exynos chipset looks promising, too.
