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
. 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
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.

"One of the groundbreaking innovations the Galaxy S10 line features is its full-screen experience, made possible by the Infinity-O Display that covers, bar the camera punch hole, the entire front side of the device. Thanks to precise laser cutting techniques, the camera has been tucked away into the right hand side of the display to eliminate distractions for a cinematic viewing experience."-Samsung
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.
