Samsung is already planning to drop the punch-hole camera

The Korean tech giant is working on a new handset that will place cameras and sensors beneath the display, making it nearly entirely edge-to-edge, according to Yonhap News Agency.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 range are great phones, but they have disappointed somewhat simply because at one point we expected the company to solve the notch issue permanently with invisible under-screen cameras.

The Infinity O display is named for the hole-punch design in the upper left corner, where the selfie camera, along with other sensors, are housed. Samsung's most recent Galaxy S10 family of smartphones (read our review here), which were announced last month, fully embrace their punch hole "Infinity-O" display. Yang admits that it won't be possible to build the true all-screen phone of the future for at least a few more years, but says it should be possible to hide the camera beneath the display within the next year or two.

Speaking in a briefing the vice president of Samsung's R&D group, Yang Byung-duk, described Samsung's plans to create a phone with a full-body display, with the camera and speaker under the screen.

And Real have already moved to land Zidane his first new player ahead of next season by agreeing a deal for 21-year-old Militao. Eder may well be young, but he clearly has the talent to establish himself as a key cog in Real Madrid's defence.

Galaxy S10 is the first Samsung model that comes with a fingerprint sensor embedded into the glass, technically making it possible for you to unlock the device by simply touching the display in the correct place.

But like the notch, punch hole displays still represent a design compromise, and aren't exactly aesthetically pleasing.

Samsung is also considering developing an OLED display technology that allows the screen to double as a speaker, thus potentially eliminating the need for an earpiece cutout.
