Samsung will be putting a camera behind the screen without a hole
The South Korean tech giant, Samsung, finally release phones –
Galaxy S10 series – with the on-screen fingerprint sensor. Now, that’s not a stop for the company case as Samsung solution is taking a step ahead of others.
Infinity-O displays are just a stepping stones to proper full-screen phones â€“ ones with no notches or punch holes, just screen. To make it possible, all the sensors and cameras on the front will have to move under the display.
â€œThough it wouldn’t be possible to make (a full-screen smartphone) in the next 1-2 years, the technology can move forward to the point where the camera hole will be invisible, while not affecting the camera’s function in any way,
says Yang Byung-duk, vice president of Samsung’s Mobile Communication R&D Group Display.
He says that the Galaxy S10 phones are the first to have a hole in the OLED panel itself (for example, the Huawei View 20 uses an LCD screen without a physical hole, the camera looks through the LCD matrix).
Samsung also considered using the display as a speaker, similar to the Crystal Sound OLEDon the LG G8 ThinQ, but it decided against using this tech on the Galaxy S10 flagships.
