Practically all new phones have screens that stretch edge-to-edge with very thin bezels surrounding them.
The Korean tech giant is working on a new handset that will place cameras and sensors beneath the display, making it nearly entirely edge-to-edge, according to Yonhap News Agency.
To achieve this look, Samsung is trying to embed the phone's cameras and sensors beneath its display. Maybe it's the newer Exynos chipset, maybe it's Android Pie, maybe Samsung chose to optimize things for the tenth-anniversary Galaxy S lineup, maybe it's the 8GB of RAM, or maybe it's a combination of all or some of those factors, but I can't get enough of how quick and smooth the Galaxy S10+ runs. Back in October 2018, the company gave a presentation in which it said that it wants to maximize screen real estate by using technologies such is an in-display fingerprint reader, under-display camera sensors, in-display speakers, and haptic display technologies.
As CNBC reports, Samsung is working on such a solution, but it won't appear anytime soon.
The vice president of Samsung Display's R&D group, Yang Byung-duk, said that while the technology to create a full-screen smartphone won't be ready in the next 1-2 years, at least the technology can advance so much that selfie cameras can work from under the display.
At its Unpacked event in February, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Fold, making it one of the first major gadget makers to bring a folding phone to market. Infinity-O displays are the full-screen phones which do not have notches or holes.
It's likely to be a while before consumers see the "full screen" phone, however.
