While all of our eyes were set on the Galaxy 21 coverage in the past few days, Samsung quietly showcased its first Under-Display Camera technology.
The company is now ready with its first product with an Under-Display Camera. Strangely, it’s not a phone but a laptop instead.
Samsung showed off a product preview of the Samsung Blade Bezel laptop which will have a nearly bezel-less display with a 93% screen-to-body ratio.
One of the USP’s of this laptop is the Under-Display Camera.
Now the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is also expected to have this technology and you might be surprised to see their laptop incorporate this tech before the star of the show could bring it in. But it does make sense.
You see the quality of front-facing cameras in current laptops is straight-up trash, to be honest, so even if the quality of the Under-Display Camera on these laptops turns out bad, users are not going to notice but what they are going to notice is the immersive edge to edge display that does make a difference.
Now, if Samsung decides to equip the Galaxy Note 21 Ultra launching later in the year with the Under-Display Camera technology then this is what it will end up looking like.
In an official video, Samsung showcased this handset which looks like the Galaxy Note Ultra with that boxy design but there's no hole for the front-facing camera.
Now, I'm not saying this is the Galaxy Note 21 Ultra, I'm sure it's not.
Most of the smartphones Samsung uses for their commercials have edge to edge screen.
In fact, most of the time, the screen on those phones is not even real but they are edited in post-production.
But like I've said, if Samsung decided to go with this tech then this is the closest representation of how the Note 21 Ultra will look.
So when Huawei unveiled their latest chipset, the
The latest flagship chipset from Qualcomm the Snapdragon 888 runs at a lower clock speed at 2.84Ghz and the Exynos 2100 runs at 2.9Ghz, so Huawei still had that record.
But that changes today when Qualcomm unveiled their new chipset the Snapdragon 870 with a clock speed of 3.2Ghz. To be honest, the Snapdragon 870 is not a new chipset but basically an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 865+ with the specs being literally the same. So basically it is the Snapdragon 865++.
Now having a better clock speed doesn't mean it's faster than the Snapdragon 888. The 888 CPU is based on the newer Cortex-X1 and A78 instead, so while it runs at lower frequencies, the 888 will still be faster as there’s more to the performance story.
We’ll have to wait for the first benchmarks to see how exactly all of these chips compare.
By the way, the Snapdragon 870 will be seen in a lot of value flagship smartphones from companies like Motorola, OnePlus, Oppo, Xiaomi, and more.
