The increasing presence of the notch in mobile phones is well known, but there are manufacturers that are still avoiding it, such as Samsung. Precisely Samsung is working on a front camera under the screen to avoid the notch.
The notch is a design element that has been widely criticized by many people, although the truth is that Apple was one of the first to implement it in the iPhone X. A short time later, many Android manufacturers were also encouraged.
Today, it's not uncommon to see the notch on a variety of mid-range and high-end phones: the latest to have them have been the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro presented a few days ago. However, Samsung has not wanted to follow this “fashion”.
Hidden front camera
Unlike what manufacturers like Oppo have done in their Find X of putting a retractable section that opens when using the camera or Xiaomi with its next Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, Samsung wants to do something similar, but in a different way.
It was the Samsung Mobile. News Max Twitter profile that offered some very interesting information. Samsung intends to hide the front camera under the screen, but not through any mechanical section or anything like that.
Possibly it would be something similar to the recent fingerprint readers that, when hidden, function as a physical fingerprint sensor, making it What happens is that the user does not see it because said sensor is not visible.
In any case, apparently it is an attempt that it is not known if it will be implemented or not, so it would be necessary to finally see what will happen and if we will see a phone with a front camera under the screen to avoid the notch and put a screen that occupies the entire front
The same information indicates that there are many prototypes in this regard, so this possibility is still very green and at least it should be wait until at least 2020 to see any Samsung phones with this technology.
If finally Samsung manages to implement a front camera under the screen in order to avoid the notchon their phones, who knows if other manufacturers may later get ideas to get rid of the notch.
