As we near the full reveal of the Galaxy S24 on January 17th, Samsung has already announced during a CES keynote that its next "flagship phone" (presumably the S24, then) will be able to double as a webcam. The feature will allow you to switch between the front-facing and rear-facing cameras, as well as apply Samsung's AI camera features like Background Blur and Auto Framing.
