Wait If You Don't Want a Huge Punch-Hole
The 2019 iPhones have a notch and Samsung's Galaxy S10 models come with punch-holes on the front of the display. That could change this year.
The vice president of Samsung’s R&D group, Yang Byung-duk, says the company plans to do away with the punch-hole, but that the move will take a few years.
Before this happens, the company plans to reduce the size of the punch-hole on upcoming devices so that it's barely visible.
The company's Galaxy A80 has a 6.7-inch display that's all-screen and it could be a sign of things to come.
A Galaxy S20 benchmark, discovered by GalaxyClub, hints at a 20:9 display which means the device could have a bigger display and smaller bezels. Samsung's Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A80 already have this ratio so it's certainly not out of the question.
A new report claims at least one version of the Galaxy S20 display will use a 20:9 aspect ratio though it's unclear which model, or models, will use it.
The Galaxy S20 apparently won't have an under the display camera so those interested in that technology will likely have to wait for another Galaxy launch in 2020.
A report from MyDrivers, citing South Korean sources, claims Samsung's working to release a "perfect full screen" experience where the front-facing camera is hidden until it's needed.
The feature is reportedly similar to the in-display fingerprint sensor the company debuted on the Galaxy S10 in 2019.
So while it probably won't show up on the Galaxy S20 series, there's a chance it shows up on another device in 2020.
If you aren't a huge fan of the Galaxy S10's punch-holes (there's a single hole on the front of the Galaxy S10 and two holes on the front of the Galaxy S10+), think about waiting for potential design changes on the Galaxy S20.
