To update: There are indications that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will have a camera under the display. Leaker Max Weinbach is not only certain that the phone will be equipped with the technology, but he has also given assurances that “it will be fine”.
Can confirm: Fold 3 has a camera under the display

The original story goes below.
Fold3’s UPC transmission is up to 40% +, which is much higher than any other UPC solution you’ve ever seen.

The suggested benefit is that you get an uninterrupted screen. If you look at the ZTE Axon 20 5G and the prototypes we’ve seen so far, the downside is that the camera is visible against bright backgrounds, which goes beyond the purpose.

According to Ice, the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s under-display camera has higher light transmission than the solutions we’ve seen so far, which implies that the image quality would also be better. In another not-so-cryptic tweet, the insider said the camera was as good as traditional snapper.
Unfortunately there is still a compromise. The tipster has pointed out that the camera is not perfectly camouflaged and the display somehow looks like a mosaic.
That’s to be expected from new technology, and as long as it looks better than a pinhole, most users probably wouldn’t mind. Even with the ZTE Axon 20 5G, the under-screen camera is hardly noticeable in general use.
Galaxy Z Fold 3 Specifications and Launch Date Rumors
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 renders based on leaks
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 will most likely have S Pen support, but it likely won’t have its own slot to store the pen.
The chip is apparently paired with at least 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of non-expandable memory. Leaks also indicate a 4,380mAh battery with 25W charging support and Android 11.
The main display will be 7.55 inches and the outer screen will be approximately 6.21 inches. Both screens are said to have a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
Rumor has it that the device will also have a stiffer but lighter frame than the Z Fold 2, and the cards also seem to have an IP rating to protect against water and dust.
