Samsung works on camera technology under-display. Galaxy Fold’s recent catastrophic introduction was a PR nightmare to the brand image of Samsung. This does not, however, stop Samsung from experimenting with new ways of incorporating cameras and sensors into smartphone displays. Yang Byung-Duk Samsung is close to creating a full-screen panel (without a hole-punch), according to Samsung’s vice president of Research and Development.

Yang Byung-Duk stated that under the screen the camera and sensors would be incorporated without hindering the display. If everything goes as planned, both the front camera and a full bezel-less, notch-less and punch-less display can be used by consumers, a concept design that tech enthusiasts have been dreaming of for some time now. It’ll take at least one to two years, though.

“While it would not 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 is invisible and does not in any way affect the function of the camera — Yang Byung-Duk, vice president of Samsung’s Mobile Communication R&D Group Display”
Ultimately, this new technology (if implemented) will allow Samsung to achieve the full-screen display that the South Korean Giant has been designed for so long. Up to now, the only way to achieve a 100% bezel-less screen has been to use a motorized mechanism that has many weaknesses, such as stuck dust particles in motor parts that can make the entire mechanism useless.

In addition, the South Korean giant also filed a patent with the U.S. Patent and Mark Office (USPTO). The patent is about a ‘ wrap-around ‘ display that appears to spread around the edges and continues on the phone’s back. Although this patent is not related to the under-display technology, it indicates, however, that Samsung may also be working on a wearable smartphone. As absurd as that sounds, it may be true as smartphone watches in recent times are becoming quite functional. Let’s see what we have in store for Samsung.
