All the OEM’s of Smartphone is trying to increasing the size of the display, the trend was started with iPhone X when Apple has launched the phone with notch but the main of adopting technologies is achieving the milestone of full screen. In order to achieve that we have seen the slider designs being introduced by the smartphone manufacturers like Xiaomi, Lenovo and Honor. A few China-based manufacturers like Oppo, Vivo, Huawei, and others have come up with unique smartphone designs that eliminate the need of a display notch, but all seems to be temporary. As earlier reported from the leak slide of Samsung that company is working Sound on display technology to get rid of notch.
According to the report from Korean news outlet ETNews, the South Korean giant will showcase its new “Sound on Display” (SoD) OLED display panels during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 next month in Las Vegas, US. As the name itself suggests, in SoD panel, the sound emits from the display itself and eliminates the need for external speakers.
Samsung’s Sound on Display technology uses vibration and bone conduction, which gives the company the opportunity to place yet another component beneath the screen’s surface, providing more room for the display.
This was first demonstrated by the company during SID DisplayWeek in May this year. It was showcased on a device featuring a 6.22-inch display and 2960 x 1440 pixels screen resolution. The technology, which LG is also working on, could help manufacturers turn the whole screen into a speaker.
While the company is all set to publicly demonstrate its new Sound of Display technology, there’s no information regarding its availability for manufacturers or to know certainly that it is ready for the commercial launch.
With the development, it is very clear that Samsung 2019 flagships will not feature this technology and we might not see it even in 2020 flagship as technology is still in initial phase and only time will tell when we’ll be able to experience this new SoD panels from Samsung.
