Galaxy S10 will have an in-display front-facing camera

Samsung has introduced its new display technology, and suggests that the Galaxy S10 will have the front camera and the fingerprint reader under the screen.

Although there are still a few months until the presentation of the Samsung Galaxy S10, we can already guess some of the features that we could find in the next flagship of the South Korean company. Among them, we can highlight that it is possible to integrate both the fingerprint reader and the front camera under the screen.

Unlike other manufacturers, Samsung has always been against the implementation of the notch on the screen of their devices. So far, the company has preferred to reserve a thin border at the top to include the front camera and their respective sensors, and to give more space to the panel on their flagships has moved the fingerprint reader to the back of the phones.

However, the Samsung Galaxy S10 screen could present some news. Yesterday, October 18, the Samsung OLED Forum conference took place in China, an event in which the Korean giant revealed the characteristics of its new OLED screen technology. The company presented advances in the technology of its panels, including the implementation under the screen of both the fingerprint sensor and the front camera.

So far, these features we had seen in patent applications or rumors and leaks, but everything suggests that we could see them soon materialized in a real device, and the chances of this phone is the Galaxy S10 are very high.

In addition to these developments, it is also possible that the screen of the Galaxy S10 is capable of transmitting sound, although at the moment it is not clear whether it is conventional speakers or some more advanced system, such as bone conduction technology.

What the new Samsung Galaxy S10 panel technology seems to lack is a facial recognition system to unlock the device, since the front camera module under the screen would not have a 3D scanner.

At the moment, all this is conjecture and we still do not know for sure if the screen of the Galaxy S10 will equip the novelties presented in this conference, so we will have to wait until an official confirmation occurs.

    I wonder how the phone is gonna detect if you’re using that part of the screen normaly or you want to use the finger for something. I also hope it can be disabled, it’s nonsense the phone is trying to detect a finger everytime you are touching the screen. Anyways, these are good news since I find notch an aberration and I will never have one phone with it. Let’s see how long chinese makers start doing the same for 1/5 the price 🙂
