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.

The report comes less than a month after Samsung debuted its latest line of flagship smartphones.

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.

Speaking to Yonhap News Agency, Samsung's vice president for R&D, Yang Byung-duk, said the company's Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED screen used in the S10 is "a noteworthy achievement" for smartphone displays, but the company's exploring full-screen displays without any cutouts.

It's likely to be a while before consumers see the "full screen" phone, however. While Samsung is attempting to manufacture a ideal display, other OEMs have been trying to eliminate ports and buttons for a more seamless 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.

At its Unpacked event in February, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Fold, making it one of the first major gadget makers to bring a folding phone to market.
