Here’s when Samsung’s first full-screen smartphone will arrive

Samsung’s main aim is to create a full-screen smartphone, wherein the camera and all the required front-facing sensors, including the earpiece speaker, are mounted beneath the screen — without a notch, hole-punch or any other sort of cut-out in sight, according to a report from Yonhap News.

“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.”

Yang then went on to reveal that the Infinity-O Display on the Galaxy S10 is somewhat of a milestone for screen innovation, but the real objective is to create a full-screen experience, adding that Samsung is considering implementing its own version of Crystal Sound to make that a reality.

Crystal Sound eliminates the front-facing speaker

That’s a rather straightforward name for a complex bit of kit, which sends audio waves racing through the screen — eliminating the need for a front-facing speaker. We know for a fact that Samsung’s been mulling over the idea for a while, but rival LG beat it to the punch with the LG G8 ThinQ.

“Though it wouldn’t be possible to make (a full-screen smartphone) in the next 1-2 years, the technology can move forward to the point where the camera hole will be invisible, while not affecting the camera’s function in any way,” Yang said, leaving us very excited for what the future holds.

Before s8 no one would think that samsung can ditch the home button.but samsung do this and its much liked by the people.but touch capicitive button under screen feels awkward i think.i was comfortable with home button and evoking touch capicitive button under bottom bezel.simple and comfortable.no one can match this comfort.complicated things always confused our mind.i also dislike the decision of samsung side mounted camera module.

What a waste of resources and time only for tech bragging points. Samsung is just creating a massive headache for itself unnecessarily when the average consumer don’t really care about an all screen bezeless phone. Just leave very thin top and bottom bezels and put a pair of nice and well designed front facing stereo speakers, the front facing camera(s) and all the required sensors, problem solved.
Focus more on improving the front facing camera especially at night and indoors.

If by the market you mean reviewers and part of tech community not the average consumer maybe yes. Only reviewers and a small percentage of the tech community really care about it or are constantly talking about it not the average consumer which are 99% of the ones who buy the phones.

No, they don’t. The average consumer don’t watch YouTube videos or read reviews about phones or comparisons, they are not subscribed to tech sites and follow tech news enthusiastically like we do.
