Samsung teams with Disney and Pixar to hide the punch-hole on the Galaxy S10

Samsung teams with Disney and Pixar to hide the punch-hole on the Galaxy S10
Many smartphone users prefer having a punch-hole on the display rather than a notch. And with cleverly designed wallpaper, the punch-hole can be practically hidden or disguised. With that in mind, Samsung recently announced special wallpaper based on Disney and Pixar characters from The Incredibles, Frozen and Zootopia. Made for the Infinity-O display on the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10e (the Galaxy S10+ has a pill-sized punch-hole for the phone's dual selfie sensors), the Disney wallpapers are free for Galaxy S10 users.

Other wallpapers offered by Samsung also use clever designs in order to hide the punch-hole found on its handsets using the Infinity-O display. These can be purchased from the Galaxy Store. Samsung adds that it hopes to add more options soon through collaborations with other companies. The Infinity-O display allows Samsung to offer a notchless, full-screen experience to users.



Disney has always had a close relationship with Apple (Steve Jobs was Disney's largest stockholder for years), so it was a shocker when the entertainment company worked out a deal with Samsung allowing its characters to be used for the AR Emoji feature introduced last year along with the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. With the new announcement, it appears that Disney is still in bed with Samsung.
