Samsung Galaxy S10 is still several months away, but the flagship continues to appear in leaks and reports, which indicates that launch is actually approaching. The latest story from Korea says something we've come to suspect for a while now – the Galaxy S10 will have the kind of design we've always dreamed of.
In the previous weeks, we saw Samsung tease and announce an Infinity O screen that is now thought to be on the screen of the Galaxy S10: A screen that extends from edge to edge, with just a small hole on the top of the self-image camera. Other delicacies also mentioned the new screen design that comes to the Galaxy S10 series.
Now, the Korean side TheElec claims that the phone will have an OLED screen with zero inside, which means the phone does not want top or bottom parts. Instead, the phone will have two holes on the top, one for the camera lens and infrared sensor, while all other sensors usually found in a top ring will go under the screen.
Samsung Display is currently developing these displays using diode-pumped solid state (DPSS) lasers to drill holes in monitors, says the report. Meanwhile, Samsung creates a new user interface that will accommodate the gaps. The status bar at the top of the phone will display information on the left and right sides of the hole, including carrier name, mobile ignition signal, battery life, time, and more. A black frame can hide the camera during video playback.
The production of these screens is difficult enough for Samsung to consider a backup plan that involves planting a small L-shaped notch on the top right or left of the display containing the front camera and sensors. Samsung introduced other Infinity displays on SDC1
The report also shows that Apple is "likely" to go for a zero-bezel display in the future, according to an industry observer. Apple has a patent describing what kind of technology is needed to drill a screen, but it seems a little like Apple will let go. This is because all Apple's new iPhones come with Face ID support or 3D Face Detection powered by a variety of components placed in the header.
