Samsung had a bad week. First, more important details were leaked to the Galaxy S11, then the Galaxy S10 and the Note 10 were in an awkward security situation. And now there’s another reason not to use Samsung’s 2019 smartphones.
In a separate report, acclaimed Korean website Elec and Samsung’s famous insider Ice Universe revealed that Samsung would launch a smartphone with its built-in camera next year. In addition, the models you expect will not start.
“Samsung will bring a camera phone to the screen next year! Not S11, not Fold 2,” said Ice Universe in a cryptic tweet.
By adding meat to these bones, Elec said that Samsung calls the “Under Display Camera” (UDC) technology internally and integrates a transparent screen over the punch. The result is no courage, no pothole and no need for a pop-up camera. Production will start this month with the company “planning to set up mass production facilities early next year”.
Samsung was also very open to its projects in this area. In November 2018, Samsung’s Product Marketing Director, Hassan Anjum, announced the UDC signage “New Infinity,” saying she was about to arrive. I can not wait to let you know more about it. ”

Since then, Samsung has been silent, but its competitor Oppo already introduced similar technology projects in June, and a recent Samsung patent earlier this week clearly shows that projects are in progress. And if he does not make the Galaxy S11 or Galaxy Fold 2 (earlier generations were announced in February), he could make his debut in the Galaxy Note 11.
Interestingly, the UDC technology would also allow Samsung to return to face recognition because the sensors can also be hidden under the screen.
Under pressure from Google Pixel 4 and Apple’s dual biometric iPhone plans, the new Infinity display can not arrive soon enough.
This makes 2020 a massive year for Samsung. After all, the heavily leaked Galaxy S11 should offer a revolutionary camera, improved design, significant performance improvements, next-generation memory, an oversized fingerprint sensor, and image processing focused on AI.
And that happens before the Fold 2, a potentially revolutionary new battery technology and new Infinity phones.
Why is Samsung going so far? Because the next iPhones from Apple are also radically reinvented. So 2020 looks like a year in which we all win.
