Samsung’s ultimate goal is to create "perfect full-screen" phone

But in the long term, the company aims to create a phone with a "perfect full-screen" by embedding the cameras and sensors underneath the display, according to Korean news outlet Yonhap News Agency.

Yang Byung-duk, Samsung's vice president of the mobile communication display R&D group, explained, "Though it wouldn't be possible to make in the next one to two 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". 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.

The images come in 1960 x 1960 (single wing) or 2152 x 2152 (dual-wing) resolution to accommodate the phone's 1536 x 2152 pixel resolution folding screen.

Samsung has proven in the past that it's capable of releasing ambitious phone designs.

The resolution requires the president to withdraw any United States troops in or affecting Yemen within 30 days. It is the second time the Senate has approved a measure that would curb USA military involvement in Yemen.

Ultimately when the technology does arrive in phones, it will likely be accompanied the integration of other technologies such as speakers and fingerprint readers in the screen itself, making the dream of the all-screen phone finally a reality.

The Galaxy S10 hasn't even been out a week yet, but Samsung is already looking toward the future. Maybe it's the newer Exynos chipset, maybe it's Android Pie, maybe Samsung chose to optimize things for the tenth-anniversary Galaxy S lineup, maybe it's the 8GB of RAM, or maybe it's a combination of all or some of those factors, but I can't get enough of how quick and smooth the Galaxy S10+ runs.

However, creating a smartphone with a full-screen display where all sensors embedded into the screen is the ultimate goal of the company.
