The next original equipment race for smartphones is likely to be a truly full-screen smartphone that doesn’t have any pop-up cameras or other external mechanical stuff for the selfie camera. Many analysts and observers believe that Samsung will be the first brand to bring under-display cameras to smartphones, most probably in the Galaxy Note 10 or more likely with the Galaxy S11, with full-screen devices with almost no bezels and high screen-to-body ratio.

As Samsung gears up for full-screen display, with no bezels or a camera cutout of any kind. According to a report in Yonhap News Agency  Samsung’s  vice president of its display R&D group, Yang Byung-Duk, said that “though it wouldn’t 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 will be invisible, while not affecting the camera’s function in any way.”he said that “it wouldn’t 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 will be invisible, while not affecting the camera’s function in any way.”

Samsung’s latest flagship Galaxy S10, which is the company’s first phone to have a “hole-punch” cut out from its display and one of a kind different way to place a camera in the front screen for the selfie. Yang called the S10’s Infinity-O display a “milestone” for the company but said that the company plans to place the selfie camera under the display itself. Yang didn’t give any further details on when Samsung’s “perfect full-screen” phone might be ready, he though hinted that it might come over next year or after 2 years.

Xiaomi’s Design

Xiaomi has some other plans, the company is apparently also looking to produce the first marketable full-screen smartphone with an under-display camera. The patent for the device is not yet clear, which was spotted by a Chinese website, which offers a few technical drawings and a brief description. The website showed that the smartphone will somehow use two separate screens to solve the under-display camera problem the under-display camera in Xiaomi’s concept smartphone would work with both screens. The selfie camera is hidden under the first display when not using and then becomes visible when using it. This indicates that when the front-facing camera isn’t required, the Xiaomi smartphone would offer its user a full-screen device free of unsightly notches and screen-to-body-ratio destroying punch-holes.
