The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 is supposed to feature an under display camera for the interior “front” facing cam. Leakster @FrontTron has been slowly piecing together the details of all five cameras on Samsung’s next flagship device.
The first selfie camera is a 16 MP module of the under display variety, which will leave the large inner screen completely unblemished. Samsung recently showed off such tech at the SID 2021 exhibition and later in this video. It has it trademarked as “Under Panel Camera” (UPC).

There will be a second selfie camera on the phone, this one a 10 MP punch hole on the external display. It’s not clear why Samsung would use only one under display cam.
Next up, some bad news. The Galaxy Z Fold3 will not have a particularly impressive camera setup on the back with a mundane 2x telephoto lens and a selection of not very big 12 MP sensors.
According to the latest rumors, the phone will have a 6.2” external and 7.5” internal displays, both running at 120 Hz. The inner one will support the S Pen too, though it may not quite replace the Galaxy Note that we’re not getting this year because it will lack a holster for the stylus (and the Notes would have brought improved versions of the S21 camera setup).
