According to recent report, Apple is actively working on the under-display camera (UDC) for its upcoming iPhones within the next few years. LG said that they are working on an under-panel camera design. It will ensure an uninterrupted viewing experience during activity like gaming or video consumption. If this happens then it will replace the Dynamic Island. A UDC is not like a regular front camera module since it provides the image sensor with less light. This is due to the fact that light loss happens before it reaches the camera lens, passing through the display area and potentially lowering brightness and image quality.
LG Innotek is working on a unique “freeform optic” multiple lens technology to make up for this, which will enhance peripheral image quality by lowering optical aberrations and raising the light-to-dark ratio surrounding the optical module. It is anticipated that Apple would use under-panel Face ID technology in the iPhone 17 Pro in 2025 before utilising the refined under-screen camera technology. The UDC would thereafter be incorporated into Apple’s “Pro” iPhone models by 2027.
