    So is the Camera Under Display - CUD?

    Certainly something to chew over.

    Re: Samsung reveals bezel-less, notch-less smartphone tech

    Until it looks and works like the things in The Expanse, it's just another phone...
    I agree with Mark Tyson, though - Foldable is far more interesting, at this point.

    Re: Samsung reveals bezel-less, notch-less smartphone tech

    Bezel-less is seriously annoying, first thing I disable.
    If I don't disable I'll be clicking and activating all kinds of demons while grabbing the phone...

    Wouldn't pay a premium for it (on the contrary, I'd pay a premium not to have it) but it's not a deal breaker because I can deactivate it.

    Re: Samsung reveals bezel-less, notch-less smartphone tech

    No notch is great, I was worried about that junk in my next phone. Full front display is great, but no bezzles seems like they are asked for screen damage. And how would a phone case even work with that???

    These all display phones look a bit unsettling tbh

    Re: Samsung reveals bezel-less, notch-less smartphone tech

    The next big advancement needs to be adding variable texture to these screens so if you add voltage to an area, it bulges upwards. The big problem is a lack of tactile feedback and so you just can't type properly without looking at where you are on the keyboard. I used to always buy slide out keyboard phones but decent ones have gone the way of the dodo. The Palm Pre was near enough the perfect combination in my view but I do have small fingers and hands so I could manage that small keyboard. Sony did a good slide out model with an exceptional keyboard but mediocre everywhere else. The slide out proper keyboard has thoroughly sodded off and so I'm hopeful for some kind of tactile interface which allows you to type properly.

    Re: Samsung reveals bezel-less, notch-less smartphone tech

    Fingers crossed this guarantees that they will remain notch free with all of their flagship devices

    Notches are the worst thing to infect smartphones in years and currently you are really limited for choice when it comes to flagship devices if you want a phone with a full screen - it's pretty much Samsung or nothing. Hopefully everyone will copy this move now and in 2019 we'll start to see the death of the notch!

    No notch would be a dealbreaker for me - how else do you know which is the top of the screen?

    They just haven’t thought it through

    Looks nice, but I think likely to be too expensive...

    But can it... you know... phone people?

    I feel I am a dying breed who just wants a display with can be seen and a phone to actually phone people with.
