Samsung wants to eliminate unsightly cutouts, integrate selfie cameras under the display

Samsung's aversion to notches made the company punch a hole in the display of the Galaxy S10 series to house the front camera and while such a design does increase screen estate, the South Korean behemoth ultimately wants to come out with a phone with a ideal display that's not marred by any hole or pill-shaped cutout.

Samsung's Infinity-O technology was a good compromise, avoiding a notch, but still leaving some part of the screen unusable due to the hole in the screen. Maybe Samsung. Like in-display fingerprint sensors, Samsung says it's working to embed the selfie camera underneath the screen for future phones.

Samsung's newest device lineup includes the Galaxy S10, which is the first smartphone to feature its futuristic "Infinity O" display. The Galaxy Fold is most likely going to have its own problems, such as a creasing screen and thick dimensions, and it could take several more years before Samsung perfects the design of this product, while also keeping the price of the handset in check.

That said, Samsung's folding phone had been rumored to be in the works for several years prior to release, so it seems all the more plausible that a "full screen" design will take equally, if not more, time to develop.

Notches, hole-punches and other unsightly camera cutouts could be a short-lived blemish on the smartphone industry if a recent report from Jonhap News Agency proves accurate.

"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", Yang added.

Samsung is also reportedly looking at Crystal Sound OLED display technology, where the display in a smartphone can double up as a speaker.
