The under-display camera is certainly considered to be a step ahead than the “Punch Hole Cutouts”
the technique for the cameras implemented in the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10. For manufacturing the cameras of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10, Samsung has used a technique known as “Hole in Active Area, or HIAA1.
Let’s look into the matter a bit of detail. It looks like a small hole, in the corner of the screen, which accommodates the camera-module, like a small hole on a sheet of paper made by the mechanical punch machine. So, guys, this is the reason why this technique is called Punch Hole Cutouts. Samsung applied this technique successfully on “Galaxy – A8s”, later applied on “Galaxy S10”. Samsung is implementing two techniques side by side, HIAA1 for standard “Punch Hole Display” and HIAA2 for the “Under-display camera” technology.
