Samsung India on Monday launched an online exclusive “Galaxy On6” smartphone with Infinity Display for Rs 14,490.
The device, available on Flipkart and Samsung online shop from July 5, comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card.
It has 13MP primary camera on the rear and an 8MP front shooter for selfies. Both cameras come with f/1.9 aperture to work better in low-light conditions.
“Packed with new ‘Make for India’ innovations such as ‘Chat-Over-Video’, My Galaxy Video and Samsung Pay Mini, Galaxy On6 is a perfect companion for multi-taskers,” said Sandeep Singh Arora, Vice President, Online Business, Samsung India.
The front camera also enables Face Unlock as an additional security feature.
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.
Yang said the company is also considering development of Crystal Sound OLED display, which can make the screen double as a speaker.
