Report emerging from Samsung‘s home country, South Korea indicate that the tech giant has commenced mass production of Infinity-O displays that is rumoured to feature on next year’s Galaxy S10 for the first time. The infinity-O displays are OLED screens which would have a hole at the front that would house the selfie camera.

According to the report by ETNews, Samsung has upgraded its existing manufacturing facilities to accommodate the production of the new displays. Although Samsung is yet to confirm if the display panel will be used on the Galaxy S10, the timing of the factory upgrade suggests the display could be ready for the S10 that is expected to be announced around March next year.

Samsung’s Infinity-O display is expected to herald a new vista in full-screen phone designs. The design will allow Samsung to increase the screen-to-body ratio of its phone without the notch or using a slider design. It seems to look similar t the water drop notch but this time, it is not a notch, rather it is an O-shaped opening for the camera on the display. It is just possible that the device will only house a single camera at the front but there are rumours the Galaxy S10 will pack a dual selfie setup. This throws up the possibility of the Infinity-O screen being used on the model with a single front camera.
