Yang admits that it won't be possible to build the true all-screen phone of the future for at least a few more years, but says it should be possible to hide the camera beneath the display within the next year or two.

His pronouncements should make it clear that we should not hold out any hope of the technology showing up in the Note 10, and that even the S11 (or whatever Samsung will call the next generation) seems destined to continue to the punch hole design.

The goal is to put the selfie camera and any other sensors - such as those which measure brightness and proximity - under the screen itself. Back in October 2018, the company gave a presentation in which it said that it wants to maximize screen real estate by using technologies such is an in-display fingerprint reader, under-display camera sensors, in-display speakers, and haptic display technologies.
