Samsung Working On An In-Display Front Facing Camera
Samsung is reportedly working on an in-display front facing camera. If the reports are true, then we are going to witness one of the biggest jumps in smartphone technology. An in-display front-facing camera eliminates the need for a bezel or a notch to house the camera sensor. This could result in a truly bezel-less display without the hassles of a ‘sliding’ or ‘pop-up’ camera.

Samsung displayed the plan to do so at the 2018 Samsung OLED forum. The company announced that they will be working on other OLED technologies as well. This includes an in-display fingerprint scanner, a touch-sensitive technology and a screen sound technology. What these would do is not exactly clear as of now. But the in-display camera is the most exciting and arguably the most important out of the lot.
#Samsung is working on a new technology trying to hide the front camera underneath the display. My sources told me that there are just a hand full of prototypes using this technology. I don't think we'll see this feature in retail phones until 2020, but who knows ?????

A New Trendsetter?
Samsung has kept away from the ‘notch’ trend all this while. While every other smartphone manufacturer, including Google has jumped on to the bandwagon, Samsung has not. Recently, Samsung was teasing Google for the huge notch on its Pixel 3 XL device. It has also been mocking Apple ever since the launch of the iPhone X. With such confidence in their design and the need to bring something new, which will define the industry standard for design, Samsung might be looking to integrate this technology in the upcoming Galaxy S10.

However, reports also claim that this technology is in its infancy and is just being tested on a handful of prototype phones. With the launch of the Galaxy S10 not far away, this could mean that we will not see this technology in the device. However, we can expect many surprises from the company in terms of the Galaxy S10. The S10 is said to feature a bigger screen, a bigger battery and might even have a 5G variant, along with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
