Samsung Electronics Co. on Thursday said it will push to put cameras and sensors beneath the screens of smartphones to create "perfect full-screen" devices.

It's not possible to make a smartphone today that integrated all of the necessary camera equipment behind the screen but according to Yang Byung-duk, vice president of Samsung's Mobile Communication R&D Group Display, "in the next 1-2 years, the technology can move forward to the point where the camera hole will be invisible".

Samsung is also reportedly looking at Crystal Sound OLED display technology, where the display in a smartphone can double up as a speaker.

"Galaxy S10 is the only smartphone that has a hole in OLED display itself", Yang pointed out.

One of the innovative features of the Samsung Galaxy S10 range of phones is the "punch-hole" front-facing camera, which enables the phones to have a virtually all-screen display - but now Samsung has confirmed that it's already planning to drop this feature for future handsets.

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

Yang said the Infinity-O display is a milestone for the company as it takes a lot of effort to place camera inside OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display. 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.
