What about a full-screen phone?
For those of you who are waiting for a full-screen phone, this may happen faster than you think, as Samsung worked his way towards this goal.
The news comes from South Korea, as media sources reported that Samsung is developing what they proclaim to be a “perfect full screen “. As cited by MyDrivers, the front camera would be masked into the screen, remaining hidden until taking a photo. This is not the first time that a feature is part of the display, as this was the case for the GalaxyS10’s fingerprint sensor.
This is not the first attempt, made by Samsung, regarding a full-screen smartphone. They tried this before with the Galaxy S10 lineup of devices, which housed the front-facing camera in almost indistinguishable holes placed on the device’s screen.
Of course, there are other companies trying to get an advantage in the smartphones market. One of them, called OnePlus 7 Pro, will offer the customers a pop-up font-camera to maintain the full-screen appearance. This represents a different strategy from Samsung, as they have been able to avoid characteristics that would compromise the full-screen design.
Sources from inside the company stated that the camera’s lenses will be inside the screen. With the purpose of creating the first full-screen smartphone, Samsung will have to use all the experience gained from the process of integrating the fingerprint sensor into the screen of Galaxy S10.
Despite the announcement, Samsung is taking the time with this technology. Best case scenario, this feature will be available with the next Galaxy S11. It may suffer a delay if the company doesn’t get the expected outcome.
