Samsung is rumored to working on an invisible selfie camera that will allow it to have  a true infinity screen – a display that occupies 100% of the front of the camera phone. It will do this by hiding the camera under the screen.

Finding ingenious solutions for making the selfie camera less intrusive have multiplied over the last year. Once upon a time, the camera sat in a black bar above the display. Then manufacturers worked on notches and punch holes, precision designs that allowed them to create an LCD screen that wrapped around the camera. Most recently, we have seen pop-up selfie cameras, that emerge from the top of the phone when you want to take an picture of yourself, video conference or vlog – and are tucked way out of sight when you don't need them.
