Under-display cameras could become a mainstay in future phone design as more OEMs adopt the technology. While ZTE is leading the push with the Axon series, the likes of Samsung may soon follow. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 will reportedly be Samsung’s first devices to sink the selfie camera. Xiaomi and Google have also filed patents for their own under-display camera designs.

The advantages of under-display cameras are clear. An uninterrupted display with minimal bezels is the design dream. A camera beneath the screen also negates the need for moving camera parts, like a pop-up or flip-around housing.

Despite these obvious benefits, the real issue with these sunken cameras is the image quality. Peering through the display, these shooters can’t yet compete with traditional selfie shooters. For some, this might be the biggest issue. For others, this is probably a negligible factor.
