The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 smartphone will indeed be potentially more productive than the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
Geekbench software confirms that the company’s new clamshell phone will feature a yet-to-be-revealed Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ SoC, which should be announced tomorrow.
Of course, the potential of the new platform may be limited by the cooling system or settings, but in the benchmark, the smartphone scores 1277 and 3642 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively. Also, the test device had 8 GB of RAM and was running Android 12.
The Galaxy Z Flip4 will be a very important smartphone for the company. Firstly, because foldable devices are becoming more popular, and Samsung is the leader in this market, and secondly, because Flip4 will account for 70% of the production of the company’s foldable flagships.
Everything is heading towards the release of an iPhone without Dynamic Island and any cutouts or holes. LG Innotek is already preparing such a screen
LG Innotek has begun developing an advanced “under panel camera” (UPC) that has no visible lens hole. According to TheElec, such screens will be designed for full-screen iPhones without cutouts or holes.
UPC technology means that the camera lens is not visible when the camera application is not running. In this case, an image can be displayed above the camera area in an inactive state. UPC is also called under display camera (UDC).
Since the UPC camera is located below the display, the amount of light transmitted to the image sensor is less than that of a regular front camera module. Because of this structure, under-screen cameras do not produce very high-quality pictures and videos.
LG Innotek is developing a special lens called Freeform Optic to overcome the UPC limitations of not producing enough light. The patent states: “By using a Freeform Optic lens, the thickness of the peripheral lens can be controlled, thereby reducing optical system and optical module aberration (a phenomenon in which images are blurred due to the shape of the lens), as well as increasing the amount of light received. The image quality can be improved.”
Although LG Innotek has already begun development, the use of such displays in iPhones can only be expected after 2026, according to TheElec. Apple has reportedly already received UPC samples from other companies, but has rated their performance as unsatisfactory.
Apple is reportedly planning to place Face ID sensors under the screen before moving to UPC technology. Then the iPhone will have one round hole instead of the Dynamic Island.
