Smartphone manufacturers are always looking for new solutions that allow the realization of devices with screens that occupy the entire front surface and Samsung could have found the best one for the current state of technology.
A few weeks ago Yang Byung-duk, vice president of the research and development division of the Korean giant, said that Samsung would be close to creating a “full screen” panel, ie without a hole or notch.
All sensors will be incorporated into the display without hindering the viewing experience. This solution will not affect the display or the camera, both things will work perfectly: basically, according to what has been learned, when the front camera is not in use, the hole will become invisible (something similar to what happens with the current screen fingerprint technology).
And always with regard to the Korean giant, in the recent days, the company has filed a request to the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) for a patent related to a smartphone with a “wrap-around” display, which extends beyond the edge and continues on the back of the phone.
This solution could be useful for different types of use, in particular for photography, as it would allow the use of the main cameras also to make selfies. Other examples of use are live translation or interaction with different applications on each side (like writing messages while opening the call screen on the other side).
