Cameraphone manufacturers are presently trying to offer devices with full-screen display and minimal bezels. With the trend that popularised after Apple launched iPhone with a notch, other telephones have picked up the trend and have even pushed it further more.
A several China-based manufacturers such as Oppo, Vivo, Huawei, and others have come up with special telephone designs that eliminate the need of a panel notch. Now, it looks which includes Samsung is moreover trying for the same, with its own take.
Samsung Galaxy Note9
According to the report from Korean news outlet ETNews, the South Korean giant will showcase its new “Sound on Display” (SoD) OLED screen panels during the Customer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 upcoming month in Las Vegas, US. As the name itself suggests, in SoD present, the sound emits from the panel itself and eliminates the require for external speakers.
Samsung’s Sound on Display tech uses vibration and bone conduction, which gives the company the opportunity to place still another component beneath the screen’s surface, promoting far more room for the screen.
This was initially demonstrated by the company during SID DisplayWeek in Could this year. It was showcased on a product featuring a 6.22-inch display and 2960 x 1440 pixels panel resolution. The technology, which LG is moreover working on, could help manufacturers swap the whole panel into a speaker.
While the company is all set to publicly demonstrate its fresh Sound of Screen technology, there’s no reports regarding its availability for manufacturers or to know absolutely that it is equipped for the commercial release.
Given that it will be showcased during CES 2019, we have no doubt that the Sound on Screen won’t be in the world in the company’s next flagship phones for the year 2019 and we highly doubt its in the world in soon 2020 as well. Only period will tell after we’ll be in a position to performance this new SoD panels from Samsung.
