Samsung is among the leading brands working on several different technologies to offer the full-screen experience to the customers. The South Korean giant has been quite vocal about eventually offering a truly full-screen smartphone.
Currently, several companies are working on under-display camera technology, which is the only thing missing to enable true full-screen experience on a smartphone. Given Samsung’s development process, the company is believed to be actively working on this.
There were reports that Samsung could adopt this technology for its premium flagship offerings of this year — Galaxy S20 lineup and the upcoming Galaxy Note20 lineup. However, as confirmed, that is not the case.
Not only that, but it also seems that the company is playing safe for the next-generation Galaxy S-series flagship smartphones by skipping to adopt this new technology (via Ross Young). We can’t blame Samsung for this given that the under-display camera technology doesn’t seem to be ready yet for commercial use, that too with the desired camera output from a premium flagship-grade device.

Apart from the output, there’s also a costing factor. Integrating such a new experimental technology requires a lot of capital spending because of increased pricing of materials from vendors and low-yield in mass-production.
The next-generation Galaxy S-series flagship, which could be named Galaxy S21 or Galaxy S30, is still months away from launch. It is likely to launch in February next year, so we will definitely come across some exciting new features for the device in the coming months, if not this in-display camera technology.
