Samsung Electronics said on March 14 it will push to put cameras and sensors beneath the screens of smartphones to create “perfect full-screen” devices.

The South Korean tech giant said its Infinity-O Display, used in Galaxy S10, is a “milestone” for its display technology, although going forward it will showcase a “full screen” look for upcoming smartphones. 


“Punching a hole in the OLED display is a very challenging technology,” Yang Byung-duk, vice president of Samsung’s mobile communication R&D group display, said in a briefing. “We tried the technology for Galaxy’s 10th anniversary model and think the strategy worked as a result.”

“Galaxy S10 is the only smartphone that has a hole in OLED display itself,” Yang pointed out. “Hole display is not one of the design options, but it is a noteworthy achievement in terms of the display technological advances.”

Samsung’s ultimate goal is create a smartphone with all of sensors embedded beneath the screen.
