Samsung’s full-screen phone plan hides cameras under the display

Samsung Galaxy Fold colors

Popularized by the iPhone X, but now commonplace on phones like Google's Pixel 3 XL and the OnePlus 6T, the screen notch offered a compromise between accommodating the front-facing sensors a modern device requires, while still covering as much of the front of the handset with display as possible.

Although Samsung is proud of its Infinity-O display, the company is certainly not stopping there and is now working on a full-screen phone with the camera sensors hidden.

It's likely to be several years before consumers see the "full screen" phone, however.

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.

"Punching a hole in the OLED display is a very challenging technology", said Yang Byung-duk, who serves as Samsung's vice president of Mobile Communication R&D Group Display.

Samsung's most recent Galaxy S10 family of smartphones (read our review here), which were announced last month, fully embrace their punch hole "Infinity-O" display. The South Korean giant skipped the controversial design feature entirely with the Galaxy S10 series and instead adopted a different solution - the display cutout - which, as it turns out, can be hidden rather creatively.

Samsung's ultimate goal is create a smartphone with all of sensors embedded beneath the screen. While the company can place the selfie camera under the OLED panel even with the existing technology, the image quality takes a serious hit.

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