Samsung reportedly working on Full Screen Display Tech with Selfie Camera under Display!

Samsung is known for its innovation in the mobile industry, thanks to its huge R&D and a huge stake in the premium smartphone market due to the same. Now, the fresh reports hint that the Korean giant might be working on a new tech which will allow the front camera and other sensors to be embedded under the display.

As we know, the Notch trend started by Apple last year spoiled almost every other new smartphone from the brands like Vivo, Oppo, Xiaomi, and now even OnePlus with the upcoming 6T. Ranging from a wider Notch on the Poco F1 to the little water-drop Notch on Oppo R17 Pro, followed by the Vivo NEX with the pop-up camera module and Oppo Find X with a mechanical slider, most of the mainstream smartphone companies are trying to increase the screen to body ratio and reduce bezels in every possible way they can.

On the other hand, Samsung stayed with its decision of not following Apple, the reason why the S9/S9+ and the Galaxy Note 9 came with slim bezels and skimped on the Notches. Now, the latest tweet by the popular tipster Ice Universe shows us the glimpse of the Samsung OLED Forum conference held in China, on 18th of Oct.

In the conference, Samsung has been talking about the OLED technologies, to be more specific, about the new under-display features such as in-display fingerprint scanners, under-screen cameras, screen-sound technology, and touch-sensitive technology. Further, it is revealed that they are working on a new display technology that would allow for a practical placement of nearly everything ranging from the Selfie camera to the fingerprint sensor under the display (Samsung recently filed a patent for the Optical fingerprint sensor under the display). This will help the company for achieving a display with nearly 100% screen to body ratio without opting for Notch or any other weird implementations.

Another report by SamMobile says that Samsung’s new OLED display will also be capable of transmitting the audio so that the earpiece too can be fitted under the display, which is most likely going to use the advanced bone conduction technology for transmission of sound like we saw with the original Mi Mix. However, Samsung needs to work hard for making it perfect, yes, the Mix had issues with the same.

The report further adds that the company is even testing certain prototypes for these new technologies. Given that the Galaxy S10 launch is not too far, we can expect a nearly bezel-less display with a handful of the above-discussed innovations and something more like an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, a night-vision camera and an eye-motion sensor in the device? Well, who knows. Let us wait for the upcoming leaks and reports to reveal more about what Samsung is actually planning to do. Till then, stay tuned.

Motorola launched the Moto Z3 flagship last year in August with an old 2017’s SD 835 chipset instead of the then latest SD 845. Due to this, reason the company is back soon with an upgrade. The Lenovo owned company is reportedly working on its successor- Moto Z4 which will house a Snapdragon 855 and now the press images has surfaced online revealing its design aspects.

The image reveals that the Moto Z4 will have sleek bezels with a waterdrop notch on top. At the back, it has the pogo pins confirming Moto Mod support. There is a single camera at the rear which is surprising for the smartphone in 2019. However, rumours point that the sensor is a 48MP one sourced from Sony.

There is no visible fingerprint sensor on the Moto Z4, which means it will likely sport a under display one. Other things that we can ascertain from the leaked image are the placement of power button and volume rocker on right and a 3.5 mm headphone jack at the bottom. The display mentions April 3 date on the lockscreen which might be its launch date.

Now, a similar looking phone that was referred to as the Moto Z4 Play was leaked in January but the source of the current leak says Motorola has no plans to launch a Play variant in the Z series in 2019. It means that either the render is fake or the project was scrapped. Other details about the Moto Z4 isn’t available right now but if Motorola plans to launch it on April 4, we can expect the teasers to arrive soon.

Google Pixel 4 XL Leaked. Will Feature Dual Rear Cameras & Punch-hole Display!

Published

It’s the time of the year when we slowly start getting leaks from multiple sources regarding the upcoming Pixel devices. The rumor mill has started churning out leaks of the most anticipated smartphone of the year, the Google Pixel 4 XL.

The last generation Pixel devices indeed got leaked multiple times that the brand itself made a teaser video regarding the leaks. While everyone was expecting a Pixel 3 Ultra which apparently didn’t happen, the design language of the Pixel 3 XL didn’t really attract the masses with its gigantic notch.

If the leaked images are to be believed, the Pixel 4 XL will be featuring the punch-hole display which quite resembles the Samsung Galaxy S10+. The bezels are comparatively thinner this time which improves the overall look and feel of the device. We hope the brand does not skip on the stereo speakers for minimizing the bezels.

On the rear, it appears like there will be dual horizontally stacked rear cameras which are quite surprising considering the history of the brand which managed to achieve portrait mode with a single lens. This second lens could also be a wide-angle lens. The LED flash is mounted to the right of the dual rear cameras.

There is no physical fingerprint scanner on the device. In fact, the handset will feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. The unknown factor is the nature of the scanner (optical or ultrasonic). It is also possible for the fingerprint sensor to be embedded into the power button.

As of now, further information regarding Pixel 4 is not known. There is no verified information if the leaked image is legitimate or not yet. If the device actually turns out to be like the one on the leaked image, we expect it to actually get positive feedback. More leaks will be unfolding in the upcoming days. Stay tuned for updates.
