Samsung Galaxy S10 is still a few months left, but the flagship continues to appear in leaks and reports, which indicates that launch is really approaching. The latest story from Korea says something we’ve suspected for a while now – the Galaxy S10 will have the kind of design we’ve always dreamed about.
In previous weeks, we saw Samsung Reta and announced an Infinity O screen that is now believed to be the screen of the Galaxy S10: A screen that extends from edge to edge, with just a small hole on the top of the selfie camera. Other readers also mentioned the new screen design that comes to the Galaxy S10 series.
Now, the Korean website TheElec claims that the phone will have an OLED screen with zero casing, which means the phone will not have top or bottom frames. Instead, the phone would have two holes at the top, one for the camera lens and the infrared sensor, while all other sensors usually found in a top ring would go under the screen.
Samsung Display is currently developing these screens using diode pumped solid state lasers (DPSS) to drill holes in displays, the report says. At the same time, Samsung creates a new user interface that holds the holes. The status bar at the top of the phone would display information on the left and right sides of the holes, including the carrier name, cell antenna signal, battery life, time, and more. A black border can hide the camera during video playback.
Manufacturing these displays is tricky that Samsung considered a backup plan that plants a small L-shaped notch in the upper right or left side of the display that holds the front camera and sensors. Samsung introduced other Infinity screens on SDC1
8 last week, including Infinity-U and Infinity-V screens with small slots at the top, even less than OnePlus 6T’s top frame.
The report also notes that Apple is “likely” to go to a zero-bezel screen in the future, according to an industry observer. Apple has a patent describing what kind of technology is required to drill holes on a screen, but it seems unlikely that Apple will let go of it. This is because all Apple’s new iPhones come with Face ID support or 3D face recognition driven by a series of components placed inside the slot.
