Samsung's patent shows holes in display for larger screen space

Newly published Samsung patent imagines phones with 'hole areas' rather than a notch

Samsung Patent Shows How It Will End up Gaining an Upper Hand Against the iPhone X Design

However, just because Samsung has filed a patent for a phone with in-display fingerprint scanner and camera, there is still no surety that it will be launched in future.

Expert analyst Imran Choudhary told The Sun that this patent would "allow Samsung to push the boundaries" of smartphone screen design.

In an attempt to make a fully edge-to-edge display phone, Samsung is planning to integrate not only the fingerprint sensor but also the front camera into the display. On the bright side, the smartphone shown in the patent features an nearly 100% screen-to-body ratio. According to news reports, Samsung has filed a patent that has a concept which uses holes within the phone's screen to incorporate components like the front camera and iris scanner. The future Smartphones will come with OLED display to handle such new features which cannot be accessible through LCD or any other displays.

Samsung filed a patent titled "Electronics apparatus having a hole area within screen and control method thereof", on January 18 with the World Intellectual Property Organization. Among them, Apple's first OLED screen enabled iPhone X comes that features a notch at the top has received rave review for its design.

In theory this should allow the creation of a full-screen device where even the cameras can be "hidden" in the display.

Samsung's new displays have holes. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge were the first Samsung phones to feature Infinity Display design. There will be more space to explore and it will add more premium look of the phones.

Samsung design shows that the upcoming smartphones would have inbuilt tiny holes for the sensors and hardware on the display screen.
