Samsung seeks shift to full screen in new smartphones
Samsung Electronics said on March 14 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 display is a very challenging technology,” Yang Byung-duk, vice president of Samsung’s mobile communication R&D group display, said in a briefing. “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.
