Hate the Galaxy S10 Punch Hole? Here's Samsung's Plan to Kill It

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 flawless display that's not marred by any hole or pill-shaped cutout. Apparently not as Samsung is now working to remove it by completely hiding front-facing cameras behind the display.

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.

The Infinity O display is named for the hole-punch design in the upper left corner, where the selfie camera, along with other sensors, are housed.

"Punching a hole in the OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display is a very challenging technology", quoted Yang Byung-duk, VP of Samsung's Mobile Communication.

Galaxy S10 is the first Samsung model that comes with a fingerprint sensor embedded into the glass, technically making it possible for you to unlock the device by simply touching the display in the correct place. He admitted the technology could take over two years to develop, reports the news agency.

Teddy Bridgewater set to meet with Dolphins
The Dolphins do need a starting quarterback, so it is possible Bridgewater could find himself as the lead signal-caller in Miami. Bridgewater appeared to reference the anniversary of the Brees signing in a report shortly before the signing was reported.


By moving the camera under the screen, it would remove the need for any kind of cutout on the front display.

The Galaxy S10 hasn't even been out a week yet, but Samsung is already looking toward the future. While Samsung is attempting to manufacture a flawless display, other OEMs have been trying to eliminate ports and buttons for a more seamless design.

Like LG, Samsung also considered developing a Crystal Sound OLED display in which the display could act as a speaker.

It's also not the first time the company has spoken about releasing an all-screen phone.
