The division in charge of screen development at Samsung, Samsung Display, is reportedly working on a webcam model hidden under a PC screen. One of the main assets of this breakthrough? We would gain even more comfort and display surface.
Samsung has managed to hide a Webcam behind the OLED screen of a laptop PC Elle, she will see you but you, you will not see her. Samsung Display has just published a short video on the Chinese social network Weibo in which we see the outlines of what could be a webcam camera module hidden in an OLED screen of a laptop PC. Thus, the cameras integrated into the edges of our screens could pass under the slab. Or more exactly be integrated into the slab. © Samsung Image
It was our American colleagues from The Verge who unearthed this very exciting little technological nugget through the Twitter account of a famous leaker.
It is part of a larger development program, which appears to be called Blade Bezel at Samsung Display. A great first, which would drag a whole bunch of other improvements in its wake.
Opting for this technology, according to Samsung Display, would make it possible to further erase the upper edges of the screens which are most often used to accommodate the small eyecups of our webcams.
The OLED screens of laptops would have, in addition, an ultra-thin matrix (1 mm announced in the video) and a very light structure (130 grams against 180 grams currently for a 13.3 inch).
In addition, these tiles would cover an area of 93% or more, and erase the unsightly edges – although increasingly thin – of our current screens. How can we not be happy about it?
Who will come up with this solution first? The bets are open!
Even if Samsung laptops are no longer sold in France (they can however be found in Europe), Samsung Display sells its panels and solutions to many other brands. All hope of seeing them arrive in our regions is therefore not lost.

We can count on Asus, Gigabyte, or Dell machines to be equipped when everything is ready because these three love OLED and often garnish their machines, both ultraportable and dedicated to video games.
