Samsung to Create ‘Perfect Full-Screen’ Devices

Samsung's ultimate goal is create a smartphone with all of sensors embedded beneath the screen

Samsung Electronics Co. on Thursday said it will push to put cameras and sensors beneath the screens of smartphones to create “perfect full-screen” devices.

The South Korean tech giant said its Infinity-O Display, used in Galaxy S10, is a “milestone” for its display technology, although going forward, it will showcase a “full screen” look for upcoming smartphones.

“Punching a hole in the OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display is a very challenging technology,” Yang Byung-duk, Vice President of Samsung’s Mobile Communication R&D Group Display, said in a briefing, Yonhap news agency reported.

“We tried the technology for Galaxy’s 10th anniversary model and think the strategy worked as a result.”

“Galaxy S10 is the only smartphone that has a hole in OLED display itself,” Yang pointed out. “Hole display is not one of the design options, but it is a noteworthy achievement in terms of the display technological advances.”

Samsung’s ultimate goal is create a smartphone with all of sensors embedded beneath the screen.

“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,” he said.
