lol @ iPhone X, Xs and Xr with their outdated notches :mickeyj:

 

Samsung Puts A Camera Under Smartphone Displays, Forever Kills The 'Notch'

 

Samsung hides a camera underneath a smartphone display

 

At the event, Samsung notably talked about several cutting-edge in-display technologies that will help smartphone makers create the perfect full-screen device and definitely put an end to the era of smartphones with front notches, first seen on the Essential Phone and popularized by the iPhone X.

 

Among the advanced products that the Korean electronics giant showed were an under-the-screen fingerprint sensor (FoD, for Fingerprint on Display), sound speakers integrated to the display (SoD, for Sound on Display), in-display haptic feedback (HoD, for Haptic on Display) and a revolutionary technology that will let the front camera and other facial recognition sensors work despite being underneath the display (UPS, for Under Panel Sensor

 

we expect the Samsung Galaxy S10 to be one of the very first smartphones with a display that covers the entire front of the device and more importantly for many, without an ugly notch.

:blessed:Samsung has freaking DID IT!!!:blessed:

 

Good on them for playing the long game and resisting that corny, CORNY design decision.

 

I absolutely positively GUARANTEE YOU that if Steve Jobs were alive today, he would bitchslap anybody at Apple who thought about putting in the notch. No way in hell that happens if Jobs still runs Apple.

 

And if Samsung PATENTS THIS design................oh my god, is Apple fucked.

kinda neat, thoughts @jehurey @Goukosan

 

That seems like a solid idea.  Maybe I would prefer if there was a dedicated button along the side that I would hold down while making that movement so that I intentionally want to move across to another app, and not do it by accident.

 

Or the phone could have multi-window app functionality. Want a calculator and notepad open? If that's something that's common, then save it on the Samsung Edge bar that has "paired" apps that you prepare.

 

There's another Samsung app that is completely optional to download called OneHand Operation+, it is their best use of the outer curved edge screen yet. There's two really thin strips, and you just swipe in from either direction. And you swipe in and hold by keeping your finger on the screen, and it triggers a quick function. You can set it to it functioning like a "Back" button If you swipe in a downward diagonal direction, it serves as "Home". Or you can set it to other functions entirely, like switching between apps.

 

I even remember one of the first things advertised with my new Samsung Galaxy S4 back in 2013 was the touch-free "wave" that you would do with your hand. They were called Air Gestures.

what if you stand up and move away from your desk? Is it going to start switching apps on you? Looks nice in theory but in reality i can see this being a mess.

How ya like it?

I like the big screen a lot. Coming from the 7 plus it’s great. I like the weight and the thickness. The no home button has taken a little time but it’s pretty easy to get used to. Really like the Face ID software too. Pretty happy with it. I got the black 128gb model which is still cheaper than the 64gb XS model for some reason lol

"Two years ago, Google’s release of the first Pixel smartphone radically raised the bar for the image quality we could expect from mobile cameras. Today, even as everyone else struggles to catch up, Google is extending its lead with the introduction of an equally revolutionary new camera"

      So a bunch of gaming and display companies grouped together to improve and adhere to certain best practices for optimizing HDR content.
       
      Activision Publishing, Inc. ASUSTek Computer Inc. CAPCOM Co., Ltd. Electronic Arts Epic Games HP Inc. Koninklijke Philips N.V. LG Electronics, Inc. Microsoft Corporation Panasonic Corporation SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS Co., Ltd. Sony Interactive Entertainment Sony Visual Products SQUARE ENIX CO., LTD. Toshiba Visual Solutions Corporation Ubisoft Unity Vicarious Visions VIZIO, Inc. WB Games  
      That's a good list so far.. and more will be joining for sure.  This is EXACTLY what was needed in all honesty.  There's too much variance in the experience for people currently due to the implementations and limitations from game developers and display manufacturers respectively.
       
      There's a Best Practices document that outlines basic guidelines that developers and manufacturers should follow to allow for the best experience possible for each user, while at the same time ensuring that the playing field remains fair for those who's displays might not have the same capability.
       
      An example was that one user's TV may allow them to see a turn in a racing game coming out of a dark tunnel  before other racers, allowing them more time to react and judge the turn better.  So they propose that developers map their games with "primary" and "extended" HDR ranges depending on the context so that people with say 1000nit displays and 600nit displays would see the gameplay essential HDR content in the same luminance, while the other content could range all the way to the 1000nit brightness and still take advantage of the users display.
       
      Another example was a "zombie" game where some players might be able to see zombies in the dark better than others, giving them an unfair advantage.
       
      So basically just keeping the gameplay critical things in mind when developing their games to make sure it's displayed the same across a wide variety of displays.  That seems like a great way to balance it out, while also taking the most advantage of all users displays as much as possible.

      @Alphonse I don't know if you'd want to make a news post out of this for the front page but it's an idea if you're looking for more content to add.
