Samsung's aversion to notches made the company punch a hole in the display of the Galaxy S10 series to house the front camera and while such a design does increase screen estate, the South Korean behemoth ultimately wants to come out with a phone with a ideal display that's not marred by any hole or pill-shaped cutout. This was revealed by vice president of Samsung's Mobile Communication R&D Group Display Yang Byung-duk in a briefing, reported Yonhap news agency.More news: Facebook's Chief Product Officer and Head of WhatsApp Just Left the Company
In a relatively short period of time, we've gone from relatively thick bezels at the top and bottom of our smartphones, to increased real estate courtesy of a central notch, to punch hole displays. "We tried the technology for Galaxy's 10th anniversary model and think the strategy worked as a result". Yang admits that it won't be possible to build the true all-screen phone of the future for at least a few more years, but says it should be possible to hide the camera beneath the display within the next year or two. The South Korean giant skipped the controversial design feature entirely with the Galaxy S10 series and instead adopted a different solution - the display cutout - which, as it turns out, can be hidden rather creatively.More news: 'One Day at a Time' Cancelled: No Season 4 at Netflix
Like LG, Samsung also considered developing a Crystal Sound OLED display in which the display could act as a speaker.More news: Google killed over 2bn bad ads in 2018
By doing this, Samsung is looking to create the "perfect full-screen" smartphone. "Hole display is not one of the design options, but it is a noteworthy achievement in terms of the display technological advances". Which company will be the first to deliver this dream phone? LG used similar technology in its G8 ThinQ previous year.
