Hole punch designs are not going anywhere for at least a couple of years
Like many other smartphone manufacturers, Samsung has been working for years on two things expected to consolidate the company’s supremacy in the global mobile industry. But even though we’re definitely getting closer to the age of ubiquitous foldable devices and “perfect full-screen” handsets, both these revolutionary designs need further refinement work.
Obviously, it’s not that Samsung doesn’t want to achieve that “perfect” design as soon as possible. But for the time being, making an “invisible” camera hole simply cannot be done. It also remains unclear if the technology will “move forward” fast enough to produce a handset with a screen-embedded camera and sensors in two, three, five, or ten years. Until that happens, Samsung is naturally proud of how the Galaxy S10 family looks, with Yang describing the so-called Infinity-O display as a “milestone.”
