Samsung Blade Bezel is a new laptop with Under Panel Camera
In 2020, one of the biggest achievements in display technology would be panels with semi-transparency. This resulted in under-display cameras for smartphones, which some companies are starting to use. Now, Samsung wants to push this tech to computers with its Blade Bezel laptop.
Frequent leaker @UniverseIce has leaked a teaser video for the alleged laptop. The Samsung Blade Bezel uses an OLED panel with an under-display camera. In this case, it's called the 'UPC', which we assume means "Under Panel Camera". It's unknown why Samsung hasn't showcased this at CES 2021, but maybe we'll see it unveiled at tonight's Samsung Unpack.

Anyway, this UPC allows Samsung to significantly reduces the bezel on the laptop. The result is an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 93%, which means Samsung can fit larger screens into smaller laptop chassis. Besides that, this OLED panel is half as thick as regular displays, so it can be lighter than other laptops.
This is actually quite exciting because any reduction in size and weight for laptops would be appreciated. The reduced bezel also means videos feel more immersive. But what are your thoughts on the UPC technology? Let us know in the comments and stay tuned to TechNave for more news like this.
