The front facing camera sensor is a significant hurdle for the smartphones to become bezel-less, they need to be moved from the top of the phone to achieve complete bezel-less, and some manufacturers have made it using the sliding mechanism which is found in Vivo Nex, Oppo Find X and the Upcoming Mi Mix 3.
Now, the Korean giant’s display arm, Samsung Display is reportedly working on the tech that moves the camera under the display much like the under-display fingerprint sensors.
Great news! Samsung established the direction of mobile phone design in 2019!

Samsung Display held the “2018 Samsung OLED forum” with about 20 invites where it talked about some under-display features, including in-display fingerprint scanners, screen sound technology, touch-sensitive areas, and under-screen cameras.

#Samsung is working on a new technology trying to hide the front camera underneath the display. My sources told me that there are just a hand full of prototypes using this technology. I don’t think we’ll see this feature in retail phones until 2020, but who knows 🤷🏽♂️
