Samsung’s ultimate goal is to create "perfect full-screen" phone

To counter this, Samsung is now working on display technology that would allow it to make a truly "full screen" smartphone with no notches or punch hole cutouts.

But phone screens can still get better. Apparently not as Samsung is now working to remove it by completely hiding front-facing cameras behind the display.

Samsung's newest device lineup includes the Galaxy S10, which is the first smartphone to feature its futuristic "Infinity O" display.

However, creating a smartphone with a full-screen display where all sensors embedded into the screen is the ultimate goal of the company.

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 (organic light-emitting diode) display is a very challenging technology", quoted Yang Byung-duk, VP of Samsung's Mobile Communication.

The Galaxy S10 hasn't even been out a week yet, but Samsung is already looking toward the future.

That said, Samsung's folding phone had been rumored to be in the works for several years prior to release, so it seems all the more plausible that a "full screen" design will take equally, if not more, time to develop. To make it possible, all the sensors and cameras on the front will have to move under the display.

And as it turns out, Samsung itself got the message and is now working on more updates that would improve the fingerprint sensor.

Yang also revealed during the briefing that Samsung is considering building a Crystal Sound OLED display, which allows the screen to double as a speaker.
