Rumor has it that Samsung is integrating its speakers on the screen. According to OnLeaks, the Korean manufacturer LG should also do the same.
2018 will have been the year of the notch, this small area above the screen that many builders have agreed to undergo to increase the size of their screen. A trend that has not really been appreciated by the consumers themselves.
In 2019, the mission will be to gradually make it disappear through new screen technologies – such as the perforated screens of the Galaxy A8S or Honor View 20 – but also new technologies … anyway.
On-screen speakers for 2019
That's how we heard about Sound on Display technology, which vibrates the screen itself to produce the sounds of our devices rather than relying on a speaker. Samsung is expected to present its version at CES 2019, and the technology is expected on the future Galaxy S10.
According to my sources, # LGG8 will feature Sound on Display (SoD) technology …

The leaker OnLeaks adds a layer today. He says that according to his sources, the LG G8 would also benefit from this technology.
A new wave for 2019?
This is not trivial. If Samsung and LG adopt this technology together, it's a safe bet that other manufacturers are also in the starting blocks. A new trend for 2019?
No wonder that. Two things must disappear for the screen to take the entire screen: the photo sensors, but also the speakers. Also, if the Sound on Display technology is ready, we should be able to see it soon on our smartphones.
2019 just seems to be on the road to being the year of its advent: we can not wait to see it all happen.
