Integrated sensing display US 7535468 B2 Abstract An integrated sensing display is disclosed. The sensing display includes display elements integrated with image sensing elements. As a result, the integrated sensing device can not only output images (e.g., as a display) but also input images (e.g., as a camera).
If rumors are to go by, however, 2017 could be the year that smartphones begin to wow again. Bloomberg is reporting that Samsung is planning on releasing phones with bendable and foldable screens. While the Apple rumor mill is buzzing about a new iPhone (not the one coming this fall, but the one after that) that will rock a edge-to-edge display (meaning no bezels) with its front-facing camera and fingerprint scanner embedded on the screen itself.

There are two approaches of achieving this:
1) Among the thousands of LCD pixels that makes up the display of your device (TV, computer, smart phone) will be interspersed thousands of image sensing elements. In effect your whole screen becomes a camera, as you are looking into the screen others could be viewing you through that screen.
2)In the second approach which is less expensive to implement and therefore more likely the method chosen rather then the whole screen being a camera there will be a region of the LDC display that will have image sensing elements concentrated therein.
