Samsung Says the Galaxy S10 Fingerprint Sensor Will Get Better Over Time

But his team is now looking at the possibility of launching a screen that eliminates the hole punch and allows for all front-facing sensors to be embedded in the screen. Yang admits that it won't be possible to build the true all-screen phone of the future for at least a few more years, but says it should be possible to hide the camera beneath the display within the next year or two.

Hiding a camera behind a display may sound like an impossible feat, but we've already started to see phones appear with an invisible fingerprint scanner installed behind the screen, so why not a camera, too?

Ultimately when the technology does arrive in phones, it will likely be accompanied the integration of other technologies such as speakers and fingerprint readers in the screen itself, making the dream of the all-screen phone finally a reality. However, as Samsung said, placing camera sensors beneath the display is a little tricky and the company will need more time to ideal its design and engineering process.

This was one of the biggest complaints in my Samsung Galaxy S10 review, and as I said when I tried out the device, the South Korean company just needs to refine its performance with more updates as fast as possible.

But like the notch, punch hole displays still represent a design compromise, and aren't exactly aesthetically pleasing.

"Punching a hole in the OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display is a very challenging technology", Yang Byung-duk, Vice President of Samsung's Mobile Communication R&D Group Display, said in a briefing, Yonhap news agency reported. The Korea-based electronics giant showed off its flexible display technology as far back as 2013, but only debuted its first foldable phone in 2019.
