Waterdrop notches are replacing the original big cutouts lately and now we get to see what comes next. 2019 will probably be the year when holes in the displays becoming trendy with in-display cameras and sensors. According to the latest intel, Samsung is already working on that.
It looks like the Korean giant isn’t wasting any time and since it’s the only company to stay away from the notches so far (kudos for that), it’s looking into the way of ending the infamous trend. During the 2018 Samsung OLED forum, Samsung went even further by announcing that it’s working on other OLED-related technologies as well. So aside from the UPS (under-screen sensor), the company is also looking into fingerprint under the display, touch-sensitive technology and screen sound technology. But we are particularly interested in the first one that integrates cameras and all kinds of visual sensors under the display.
For now, only a handful of devices are being tested and given that the Galaxy S10 is coming in just a few months and the technology is in its early days, it might not be able to get it. If we go by the latest rumor going around.
If it all goes according to plan we might edge a step closer to having the dream for truly bezel-less full-screen displays materialize.
