According to a recent leak, several smartphone manufacturers around the world are working on devices with under-display cameras slated to launch later this year. Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, ZTE, and Meizu are all expected to roll out devices with next-gen under-display cameras.
Last year, ZTE launched the world’s first phone with an under-display camera dubbed the ZTE Axon 20 5G. Although the results of the camera were lacking, it did pave the way for future devices with similar technology. Now, the Chinese company has announced that the phone’s successor, ZTE Axon 30 will come with an upgraded under-display camera that will cater to the shortcomings we saw in Axon 20’s under-display camera.
The second half of the year is when the Under Display Camera officially debuts, including at least Samsung (folding), Xiaomi (MIX4), OPPO (folding), vivo and ZTE (greatly improved version)

In addition to this, according to insider Ice Universe, Samsung and Oppo’s devices that use an under-display camera will be foldable, while Xiaomi’s will be the Mi Mix 4.
None of the companies have confirmed these details. However, we know that Samsung will only be launching two foldable phones this year, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip2. The handsets are set to launch in July this year. If the new leak is to be believed, one of these two foldable phones will come with an under-display camera.
More details will be revealed soon.
