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

This selfie camera's oneday successor may not even be visible within the display

"Since the Galaxy S10 is a monumental model, we took on the technological challenge and succeeded".

Although Samsung is proud of its Infinity-O display, the company is certainly not stopping there and is now working on a full-screen phone with the camera sensors hidden. That said, don't be surprised if the Galaxy S11 or S12 has a camera tucked under the glass display.

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? Without this hole punch, used in Samsung's new "Infinity-O" displays, manufacturers have to create a small cut at the top of the display for cameras and other sensors.

Yang Byung-duk, vice president of Samsung's Mobile Communications Division, disclosed the plan during a press briefing on the display technology for the Galaxy S10 on March 14. While the company can place the selfie camera under the OLED panel even with the existing technology, the image quality takes a serious hit.

In the meantime, here's how to hide the punch-hole camera on the Galaxy S10.

James Gunn rehired to direct 'Guardians of the Galaxy 3'
In an interview with the Sun in 2017, Gunn revealed that his involvement with Marvel was going to extend past Guardians 3. James Gunn has been reinstated as writer-director of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 after being fired by Disney a year ago .

However, the executive also admitted that this technology will not be available for at least 2 more years.

Among the other designs Samsung is considering are in-display speakers, as well as haptic feedback sensors embedded in the screen.

LG Electronics Inc. adopted a similar technology in its latest smartphone, G8 ThinQ.

That means Samsung's next phone could potentially literally be entirely screen on the front side - no notches, holes, cutouts, bezels - just one giant, uninterrupted display.
