Samsung is working to put a selfie camera underneath a phone's screen

The new illustrated wallpapers not only accommodate the hole-punch camera cutout on the phone's display, but actively incorporate the visual element into the overall wallpaper design, transforming it into a telescope lens, light hinge, periscope head, and more.

Instead, the Samsung Galaxy A2 Core featuring the model number SM-A260 is more of a direct successor to the Galaxy J2 Core released previous year.

I can already imagine some of the incoming comments from our readers, asking me how it's possible that I have had noticed performance issues on Samsung's flagship phones while they haven't.

But phone screens can still get better.

We're already pretty spoilt in terms of screen-to-body ratios: the S10 is over 93% screen, and upcoming phones like Huawei's unusual square-screen handset have just one tiny sensor dimple on the front display.

Referring to the Infiniti-O Display applied to the Galaxy S10, Yang said, "It is technically highly hard to punch a hole in an organic light emitting diode (OLED) panel".

The images come in 1960 x 1960 (single wing) or 2152 x 2152 (dual-wing) resolution to accommodate the phone's 1536 x 2152 pixel resolution folding screen.

But his team is now looking at the possibility of launching a screen that eliminates the hole punch and allows for all front-facing sensors to be embedded in the screen. While Samsung is attempting to manufacture a flawless display, other OEMs have been trying to eliminate ports and buttons for a more seamless design.

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.

The South Korean tech giant said its Infinity-O Display, used in Galaxy S10, is a "milestone" for its display technology, although going forward, it will showcase a "full screen" look for upcoming smartphones.

"Ultimately, we are trying to embed all sensors, including cameras, into the screen display".
