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

Samsung Intends to Hide Cameras Under Phone Displays

Samsung wants to put cameras, sensors beneath screens to create full-screen smartphones

This isn't the first time the South Korean behemoth has mentioned this but it will take time before such a smartphone is actually materialized.

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. "We tried the technology for Galaxy's 10th anniversary model and think the strategy worked as a result". Yang admits that it won't be possible to build the true all-screen phone of the future for at least a few more years, but says it should be possible to hide the camera beneath the display within the next year or two. That said, don't be surprised if the Galaxy S11 or S12 has a camera tucked under the glass display. Don't forget that the company had also been working on a foldable device since nearly a decade and it is only now gone onto to release one.

The Galaxy S10 hasn't even been out a week yet, but Samsung is already looking toward the future.

We recall, in fact that the Korean manufacturer has chose to factory-apply a film to protect the display, so as to ensure the correct functioning of the sensor for the recognition of fingerprints and to prevent users from using one of the many third-party glass alternatives. While Samsung is attempting to manufacture a flawless display, other OEMs have been trying to eliminate ports and buttons for a more seamless design.

On a related bit of news, if none of these official wallpapers tickle your fancy and you aren't a Reddit user either, Samsung has added an official Galaxy S10 cutout section (via SamMobile) to the Galaxy Themes store.
