Samsung says Full-Screen phones may take 1-2 years, preparing to embed all sensors beneath the screen

Samsung's latest installment of Infinity displays reduced the bezel to smallest ever possible including the Infinity-O, Infinity-U, Infinity-V and the other one that we haven't seen yet but still, there's a notch or cutout to feature the front camera module.

Which is holding the company back from achieving the full-screen display and an executive from the company recently hints that Samsung has started working on the next move to achieve this challenge of 'Perfect Full-Screen'.

Samsung Galaxy S10 phones are the first to feature a Dynamic AMOLED display with cutout, as the company declared its a milestone to the upcoming display technology and company's future in it.

According to YonhapNews, during a media briefing, Yang Byung-Duk, vice president of Samsung's Mobile Communication R&D Group Display told: "Punching a hole in the OLED display is a very challenging technology, we tried the technology for Galaxy's 10th-anniversary model and think the strategy worked as a result."

"Galaxy S10 is the only smartphone that has a hole in OLED display itself," Yang noted. "Hole display is not one of the design options, but it is a noteworthy achievement in terms of the display technological advances."

After introducing the revolutionary cutout display in S10 series, the South Korean tech giant is now aiming to install all sensor underneath the display to achieve an actual full-screen display.

"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," Yang said.

The official also said that the company is considering crystal Sound on Display OLED panels, which remove earpiece speaker and emits sound directly through the screen.

Although it's a good approach towards the future and the company don't want to left any stone unturned. As well as it'll be interesting to how Samsung come up with a solution to house front camera underneath the display including other sensors.
