Samsung, a global leader in display technology, is confident of coming up with an industry-leading display technology in its next flagship smartphone, a top executive said here on Wednesday.

According to Harksang Kim, Senior Vice President and Head of Mobile Visual R&D at Samsung Electronics, the company’s next flagship smartphone will have industry-leading, screen-to-body ratio.

This is in line with recent media leaks that the tech giant’s anniversary edition Galaxy flagship will be almost bezelless.

“Samsung is focused on enhancing the size of the display and, importantly, the ratio of the active area on the handset,” said Kim, adding that “our screen-to-body-ratio will be top notch”.

On foldable displays, Kim pointed out that Samsung has been developing the technology since the last four years.

“We have been working on foldable display for the last four years. But we are not focusing so much on the foldability itself but on benefits it can offer beyond a bigger display. We want to offer something beyond tablets in terms of application and solutions,” Kim stated.

He noted that the focus is on security and stability of foldable hardware as simply making a foldable display is not an innovation but just another method for providing a larger screen.

The South Korean tech giant also wants to focus on consumers’ ease of use and convenience.

“By next month, you will hear some official announcements by Samsung Electronics not just on hardware development but also on software and platform preparations as well,” the executive informed.

While Samsung smartphones currently provide two solutions for personal identifications — fingerprint recognition and iris scanning — the company is also working on optical fingerprint recognition sensors.

However, since personal identification is directly linked to personal information and brings potential risks to the consumers, the tech giant is trying to be careful.

“Although we know that there may be delays, we are reviewing optical solutions in terms of in-display finger recognition tech and other solutions,” Kim said.

On cameras, in the future models, the rear cameras will be developed to see beyond what the human eyes can see.

“From the hardware perspective, few years down the road, we believe that rear cameras with their DSLR technology are not just going to capture the environment or nature but beyond what the human eye can see.

“Fundamentally, the rear facing camera technology will be all about communications. For example, when I’m not available, my Augmented Reality (AR) emoji will be communicating on my behalf,” Kim said. (IANS)

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.

Galaxy S10’s Infinity-O Display puts a front-facing camera in a punch-hole in the main display itself, doing away with the bezel and notch to provide users with the best viewing experience for.

The flagship smartphone also features the world’s first ultrasonic fingerprint reader on the screen, ditching the physical pads located in various places on previous devices. (IANS)
