Samsung has teased its first display with an under display camera. Somewhat surprisingly, the technology will find its way into a Samsung laptop before it makes its way into a Samsung smartphone.

Under display camera technology has been heralded as the solution to notches and hole cut outs in smartphone displays. With Chinese OEMs first to market with the technology, all eyes have been on Samsung with expectations high that it will introduce the technology on the Galaxy Z Fold3 later this year. In something of a surprise, Samsung has just teased that the first devices with under-display camera tech from the company will be in laptops.

Samsung Display has launched a teaser for what it is calling the Samsung Blade Bezel. This display panel delivers an ultra-thin bezel, thanks in part to the introduction of what it calls the UPC, or under panel camera. Compared to a conventional laptop panel which has a screen to body ratio of 85 percent, Samsung claims that its new OLED panel increases this to 93 percent. This is a substantial gain and will undoubtedly help create a more immersive user experience.

Samsung’s new panel is also 50 percent thinner than conventional panels at a mere 1 mm thick. Where typical panels weigh in at around 180 grams, the new Samsung panel reduces this to just 130 grams. This is clearly great news for lovers of thin and light laptops. Although the display technology is available to other OEMs, it is only natural to expect that it will appear in Samsung laptop first -- the only question is which one. It’s an exciting development and we look forward to testing it out.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
