With smartphones getting larger every year, the need to make them fit right into our hands are really challenging for their manufacturers which had been a constant improvement to reduce the screen-to-body ratios of modern devices. Some device makers had taken on the Notched-screen design while others have taken the use of punch-holes or slide out cameras.
Samsung on the other hand wants to make a real full-screen smartphone which would have all sensors and cameras hidden right behind the screen making it a really hole-less device and without affecting the performances of the front facing camera. In a statement made by the company’s representative, Samsung is expected to launch this totally full – screen display by the next 1 – 2 years.
Though 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 — Yang Byung-duk, vice president of Samsung’s Mobile Communication R&D Group Display
He added that Samsung is also considering development of sound-emitting display, pretty much like LG is using its Crystal Sound OLED on the latest LG G8 ThinQ. “Punching a hole in the OLED display is a very challenging technology“, Yang Byung-du added. Samsung decided to go this route for this year’s flagship, the Galaxy S10, and the Galaxy S10+, utilizing the Infinity O displays, but, for the future, it wants to offer a true full-screen smartphone.
So we could be seeing full-screen without any physical camera and sensors in the next Galaxy S11 or SXI, SXII or whatever it is Samsung would be naming it’s next generation Galaxy S smartphone line. But then we keep our fingers crossed and hoping for more advanced tech in years coming ahead.
