Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra to feature extremely thin bezels
After the launch of new Samsung foldable phones, everyone’s eye is on the upcoming Galaxy S23 series. We are continuously seeing new leaks of smartphone that suggests us their features and design. Meanwhile, a new piece of information comes out that suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature extremely thin bezels.
Recently, a reliable tipster named Ice Universe shared the image of the front and rear sides of the Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphone. The image is showcased in a light color to provide us with a more accurate look at the screen bezels.
We can clearly see that Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra has thin very thin bezels as compared to the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Alongside this, the screen has the same punch hole for a selfie shooter. Overall the screen looks beautiful.
Previously, report revealed that the bezel dimensions of the device will convert to 2.4mm x 1.9mm from 2.3mm x 2.6mm.
The obvious benefit of reducing the bezel is an increase in screen size. With a thinner bezel, the screen takes up more of the display to make your phone look bigger and more immersive. It is also good for multitasking as you get more part of your screen to place two or more app windows.
Furthermore, just to remind you, recently we saw the renders of the Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphone that suggets that the device will feature the same design as its predecessor but there are still some minor changes that enrich the look of the smartphone.
As per the information, the upcoming device features a less curved display, which is close to a flat screen and it will offer users an even brighter display panel. In addition to these, the Galaxy S23 Ultra has bigger camera outlines, which look more clear and more pleasant.
At the same time, the middle body frame of the phone is expanded whereas, the side edges are flattered to give a refreshed look to the device.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 to resolve under-display camera quality problems
Samsung first introduced the under-display camera technology with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 last year and brought its second generation with the Galaxy Z Fold 4. Moving ahead, Samsung aims to finally resolve the quality issues of under-display camera phones by 2024, which could be the Galaxy Z Fold 6.
According to TheElec report, the Display subsidiary of The company aimed to apply a transparent PI substrate to its foldable phone by 2024. Samsung is reportedly considering to ditch the yellow PI substrate and replace it with transparent PI substrate to offer clear photos without quality reduction through under-display camera.
Going ahead with the report, it’s expected that the Korean tech giant will first introduce the new under-display camera panel featuring transparent PI substrate with the Galaxy Z Fold 6 (tentative name) followed by OLED panels for Apple iPhones.
As of now, the foldable OLED displays are being mass-produced using a yellow PI substrate, which will be replaced with a transparent polyimide (PI) substrate around 2024. Using the new tech, Samsung seeks to improve the light transmittance of the under-panel camera (UPC).
The under-panel camera is an element that is structurally located below the OLED display, at the same time, its aperture is only visible when the device uses the camera function. While the camera of the phone is in operation, UPC allows external light to pass through the flexible OLED.
If Samsung Display applies a transparent PI substrate instead of a yellow PI substrate as planned, the light transmittance in the UPC area will increase, making it possible to take clearer pictures than now. Pixels can also be arranged more densely than now, reducing the sense of heterogeneity within the periphery of the display.
