Samsung Electronics Co. on Thursday said it will push to put cameras and sensors beneath the screens of smartphones to create "perfect full-screen" devices. However, the company's R&D Vice President, Yang Byung-duk, says that such a design will take a year or two at least.
Ultimately when the technology does arrive in phones, it will likely be accompanied the integration of other technologies such as speakers and fingerprint readers in the screen itself, making the dream of the all-screen phone finally a reality.
While we have already seen the likes of the Honor View 20 ship with a punch-hole display, they feature an LCD display. That said, don't be surprised if the Galaxy S11 or S12 has a camera tucked under the glass display.
By moving the camera under the screen, it would remove the need for any kind of cutout on the front display. Don't forget that the company had also been working on a foldable device since nearly a decade and it is only now gone onto to release one.
At its Unpacked event in February, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Fold, making it one of the first major gadget makers to bring a folding phone to market.
Putting a camera beneath the display could prove as, if not more, challenging and would require the company to ensure that the functionality and performance of the sensors is not affected.
Samsung has proven in the past that it's capable of releasing ambitious phone designs. In a briefing this week, Samsung made it clear that while the Infinity-O display of the S10 is a "milestone", it's also a stepping stone on the path to a true full-screen display - one unimpeded by hole punches or bezels.
