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.
Galaxy A9 (2018), launched in November a year ago, integrates a 6.3-inch Full-HD + Super AMOLED Infinity display (1080 × 2220 pixels) and is also powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 eight-core, combined with a maximum of 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of integrated storage space.
After failing to generate much excitement with the launch of the Galaxy S9 previous year, Samsung put all its eggs in the Galaxy S10 basket, cooking up an all-new design with a triple-lens camera, Infinity-O display, and a built-in fingerprint sensor. However, it is less than completely necessary, Image sensors that can "hide" under a display are technically possible; for example, they make up part of the optical fingerprint reader found in phones such as the OnePlus 6T.
Impressively, the screen also includes a built-in ultrasonic fingerprint sensor beneath the display, which can be used to unlock the device.
The Galaxy S10 hasn't even been out a week yet, but Samsung is already looking toward the future.

However, the average impact speed of orbital debris with another space object will be approximately six miles per second. The Indian satellite was destroyed at a low altitude of 300 kilometres, well below the ISS and most satellites in orbit.
So we could be seeing full-screen without any physical camera and sensors in the next Galaxy S11 or SXI, SXII or whatever it is Samsung would be naming it's next generation Galaxy S smartphone line. So if you toggle this feature then be prepared to experience weird display actions.
LG's 88-inch 8K Crystal Sound OLED was showcased at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and the technology is also present on LG G8 ThinQ smartphone that was launched at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February.
This is going to be no easy feat as the company would have to make sure the camera works properly and its performance it's not affected in any way by its placement. While it's anybody's guess when Samsung's ideal display would be ready, the company doesn't have a stellar record of adopting new technologies. "Since the Galaxy S10 is a monumental model, we took on the technological challenge and succeeded".
Samsung might be working on the next smartphone display innovation - no bezels and an in-display camera. Other manufacturers, such as Vivo, are trying to do away with ports and buttons.
