Samsung reportedly working on an under-display camera solution, aims at all-display phone design
In the pursue of bringing on an all-display screen without notch or hole, there’s been some innovation that has been brought to limelight such sliding camera, dual display. Irrespective of where you stand on the whole display notch/hole debate, a lot of us can unanimously agree that having no pieces missing from the gorgeous panel on you fancy new phone is intrinsically better than the alternative.
The introduction from notch to hole in the display panel in today’s frantic tech scene was a stepping stone to the ongoing under-display fingerprint revolution which many never seen some time back.
Thankfully, it seems we won’t have to wait too long since Samsung is already working on an under-display selfie camera solution. The info first came from the company;s vice president of the display R&D group, Yang Byung-duk and has now been confirmed by Korian media.
The smartphone industry already has offered working solutions for hiding away or simply relocating the other vital hardware components traditionally found on the front of phones (earpiece, speakers, proximity and luminance sensors, fingerprint readers etc.).
The selfie camera is more or less the last challenge on the road to a truly “perfect full screen” device, as the report puts it. The source also features a conveniently ready response to the most obvious question on all of our minds, claiming the “technology can be developed to the extent that the camera hole is invisible and does not affect the functionality of the camera or the display”.
That is definitely good news. Unfortunately, the source is still lacking in particulars, but apparently the tech involves the area of the display right above the selfie camera becoming transparent when the camera is in use. We would love to know exactly how that works and looks like and will definitely keep you posted with updates, if and when they become available.
