Samsung usually announces its flagship Galaxy S series in February every year. There’s still plenty of time for the next-generation Galaxy S23, however, information has started surfacing on the web. 

Samsung Galaxy S23 series won’t feature an under-display selfie camera

Samsung already uses a 4MP under-display camera on the Galaxy Z Fold 3. This means that the South Korean brand knows how to make the technology work. The report doesn’t state the exact reason Samsung is holding off on introducing an under-display camera on its upcoming flagship S-series. 

Under-display camera technology is available only on a few smartphones these days including the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4, ZTE Axon 30 5G, and the Galaxy Z Fold 3. Although the technology works, the end result is not always up to the mark due to various engineering challenges. The photo and video quality are in low resolution and not on par with conventional selfie cameras. 

It’s likely that Samsung wouldn’t want to compromise on the imaging quality with the under-display camera. Additionally, the technology would also push up the price of the Galaxy S23 series. The Galaxy S-series sells in large numbers and it would put Samsung at a bigger risk of complaints about the poor performance of the under-display camera. 

Recently, it was reported that the Galaxy S23 series will come with an upgraded 12MP selfie camera. This is a significant and much-needed upgrade since the last two generations of Galaxy S-series phones came with the same 10MP sensor.
