7 Reasons to Wait for the Galaxy S21 & 5 Reasons Not To
Don't Wait for a Perfect Full Screen Experience
The Galaxy S20 series features a punch-hole on the display. And while it looked like the the Galaxy S21 series might do away with it, that might not be the case.
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 time.
Before this happens, the company plans to reduce the size of the punch-hole on upcoming devices so that it's barely visible.
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 Galaxy S20 series doesn't have an under the display camera, but the technology could make its debut on an upcoming phone like the Galaxy S21.
According to leaker Ice Universe, Samsung is thinking about using under-the-screen camera technology on the Galaxy S21.
He claims the company is currently "evaluating the feasibility of the technology" which means that while possible, it's far from guaranteed.
In a more recent tweet, Ice Universe says that while "Samsung Display's under-screen camera solution is much ahead of other solutions, the company has "stricter requirements for under-screen camera effects than other brands."
That said, Analyst Ross Young, who has accurately predicted information in the past, doesn't think the Galaxy S21 will have an under panel display.
A report out of Korea suggests that Samsung won't have the technology ready in time for the Galaxy S21 launch.
The Galaxy S21 could have a smaller punch-hole, but if you're interested in a "perfect full screen" experience, you might have to wait.
