Here’s when Samsung’s first full-screen smartphone will arrive

Samsung Galaxy Fold colors Samsung Intends to Hide Cameras Under Phone Displays

"Punching a hole in the OLED display is a very challenging technology", said Yang Byung-duk, who serves as Samsung's vice president of Mobile Communication R&D Group Display.

The Galaxy S10 represents the limits of smartphone design in 2019, but Samsung's plan is to eventually bury all of the sensors and cameras underneath the display, leaving nothing but a perfectly preserved screen. "We tried the technology for Galaxy's 10th-anniversary model and think the strategy worked as a result".

Although Samsung is proud of its Infinity-O display, the company is certainly not stopping there and is now working on a full-screen phone with the camera sensors hidden.

"Galaxy S10 is the only smartphone that has a hole in OLED display itself", Yang pointed out.

Whoopi Goldberg returns to 'The View' after near-death illness
Last week, Goldberg broke her silence about why she's been gone for so long in a video message to fans. "Well, it can", she said. Goldberg surprised Joy Behar , Ana Navarro, Meghan McCain, Abby Huntsman and Sunny Hostin on set during the taping of the show.

Samsung is working on cameras that fully integrate into a smartphone display without requiring a hole, though the successor to notched and hole-punch panels won't be ready for a while yet.

Samsung is also considering developing an OLED display technology that allows the screen to double as a speaker, thus potentially eliminating the need for an earpiece cutout. "Hole display is not one of the design options, but it is a noteworthy achievement in terms of the display technological advances".

The goal is to put the selfie camera and any other sensors - such as those which measure brightness and proximity - under the screen itself.

It's also not the first time the company has spoken about releasing an all-screen phone. We know for a fact that Samsung's been mulling over the idea for a while, but rival LG beat it to the punch with the LG G8 ThinQ.
