Samsung Electronics plans to develop a full-screen display that has camera and sensors hidden under the display.

Samsung Electronics announced on March 14 that it will develop a full-screen display that has camera and sensors hidden under the display, going beyond its newly developed hole-punch Infinity-O Display.

Yang Byung-duk, vice president of Samsung’s Mobile Communications Division, disclosed the plan during a press briefing on the display technology for the Galaxy S10 on March 14.

Referring to the Infiniti-O Display applied to the Galaxy S10, Yang said, "It is technically highly difficult to punch a hole in an organic light emitting diode (OLED) panel. Since the Galaxy S10 is a monumental model, we took on the technological challenge and succeeded.” The Infiniti-O Display has a screen with one camera hole.

"The Galaxy S10 is smartphone with a hole in the OLED," he said. "The Infiniti-O Display is an important milestone in technology evolution."

"Ultimately, we are trying to embed all sensors, including cameras, into the screen display. It will probably take more than a couple of years to develop such a display, but we aim to create a display, in which the camera hole is completely invisible, without degrading the performance of the camera," Yang said.
