Samsung announces its OLED panels for laptops with the webcam hidden behind the screen.
Samsung has already announced that it is preparing mid-range OLED panels for laptops from 13.3 to 16 inches, which will allow the laptops to be even more compact, and to make this possible, the company is looking for webcam photo sensors to be hidden under the screen panel itself. This also saves costs compared to other solutions used by companies such as Huawei, which hides its webcam in a particular key on the keyboard.

According to Samsung, thanks to its panels and design of integrating the camera behind it, it would allow manufacturers to offer a screen-body ratio of 93 percent. And of course, it is not convenient to have 100 percent either, since it implies that in any blow or fall, the damage is directly supported by the OLED panel, instead of an aluminum frame that can absorb the impact.
For this camera to be effective, once the system detects that the webcam is activated, the grid on the panel that hides the camera will become translucent. So that the camera will be able to capture the image, although of course, it will be ugly enough to stick something in front of the camera to cover it up and ensure privacy.
