Samsung Galaxy S10 to Ditch the Earpiece in Favour of 6.2 Inch Sound-Emitting Display


               Last month, Samsung Electronics has showcased an interesting sound-emitting display concept  at the Society of Information Displays (SID) 2018 expo, also they had a "Sound on Display" tech prototype at hand, which seems to be based on a Galaxy S9+ casing. Now today a fresh report from South Korean media hints that this prototype won't stay such for long and that Samsung could implement this technology on next-gen Samsung Galaxy S10.

           According to the publication  both Samsung and LG are ready to commercialize their sound-emitting OLED displays in their flagship smartphones next year, and the source even claims they have information of the exact size of Samsung's screen in question, which is according to them will be 6.2 inches. It seems, this is the size of the S9+ display, so we expect that Samsung could introduce an edge-to-edge Galaxy S10 with the same panel of the S9+, but with an even more compact body.

            At the event, the Samsung representative also explained the working of panel, it uses vibration and bone conduction, that may nullify the need for an earpiece, helping extend the screen all the way from top to bottom, which you can see from the above video. The transmission bandwidth is said to be in the 100 ~ 8000 Hz range, and there is only a very fine vibration on the panel.  If you place your ear on the transmitter (a circular symbol shown in the video), you will  hear the sound from a wider area at the top half of the screen. Samsung also demonstrates a touchscreen panel that can work under water, which seems to be an another area to debut on the 2019 Galaxy flagship devices.

               The Vivo has just launched one smartphone with such technology, the edge-to-edge NEX, Vivo calls this Screen SoundCasting, which deliver better-sounding bass and softer treble. The company also claims  that "compared to other audio solutions for bezel-less smartphones, it conserves power, reduces sound leakage, and optimizes low to high pitch sound for a better and more balanced audio experience."  However, LG already has a product with a sound-emitting screen on the market such as the Crystal Sound line of OLED TVs and LED lights. A recent rumor has suggested that the company has apparently plans to bring this technology to their smartphones. It seems the next-gen flagship smartphones from different manufacturers will have this half-screen with direct-sound emitting displays and it will apparently eliminate the upper bezel or a notch display design.
