People mostly dig the alleged Galaxy S10 design leaks (results)
We asked you if you'd like a Galaxy S10 design that is similar to a few leaks and mockups that went out and about yesterday. The elliptical opening for a dual front camera of the eventual S10+ is admittedly an acquired taste, but the single selfie-taker at the potential S10 front would seemingly be considered a fine fit. 

Almost two-thirds of our 1642 respondents went affirmative on Samsung's eventual design intentions with the S10, and most of those who aren't big fans would like to see the display hole moved to another place at the top instead of the right-hand side.

Samsung is having trouble keeping its Galaxy S10 Infinity-O design under wraps it seems, as we already had the S10+ rendered from all sides, and now an alleged S10 rear has appeared in a new image render. 

That's in addition to a doctored photo of the 5G prototype with a corner notch that Samsung had on display at Qualcomm's expo the other day that you can see below. The photoshopped image depicts a right-hand side hole-in-display concept, just like most leaks are suggesting, and might be a good reference point for the eventual front S10 design.

The photo of the eventual back depicts a dual camera setup, just as rumored, in contrast to the tri-camera S10+ and quad-camera S10 5G. The front-facing shooter should be a single one and look something like what you are seeing in the mockup image below, with a hole in the top right corner. The S10+, on the other hand, is speculated to have a dual front-facing camera, and that is why its renders depicted a pill-shaped hole in the same corner, as depicted in the header above. 

Alleged Galaxy S10 rear leaks in new images, do you like this eventual design?

Its sad that now a 6.4 inch screen is the norm in android flagships, thank God samsung is giving us a 5.8 and a 6.2 options, the oneplus 6t is too tall.

tbh as an iphone xs max user, the notch covers way too much real estate compared to the holes so its a much better upgrade.

But the notch on the iphone is use for a very important feature on the phone whereas android use it to blatantly copy iphone to gain sales. Did they ever copied Samsung design?

Wrong, LG had the Side Notch wayy before Apple, and it was digital. On the LG V20. Whatever. Apple is the King and Queen of copying and claiming "First" this first that rarara. Although where see the other goodies, hidden under the Screen, nice. The TEARDROP Looks nice, "Peaceboy" get some glasses, Notch and Teardrop are not the same size.

That thing on the lg v20 is not a notch! The teardrop thing is still a notch; a nicer looking notch . Apple has many sensors in the notch;samsung and the rest will only have 1 or 2 cameras

Yes, because we don't need or want face I'd. The iris s Anne is more secure. Too bad it could be gone due to not wanting more cutouts. Any onstruction is stupid. I don't care who does it or what size it is. Look better ir not isn't even a matter of concern. It just shouldn't be there.

I would like to see Apple actually claim that they did have something first than other phones, but actually didn't (link to video or transcript would be nice) You’ll find a lot of statements like “first on an iPhone”, or first to add this ______ option to this ______ feature, for example: first fingerprint scanner IMBEDDED into the home button. Personally I skip a lot of apples announcements (they got boring after Steve, but I have never seen appple claim first to some innovation that wasn’t actually first on any smartphone.

The notch doesn't serve any purpose. You can fit all those sensors in a thin bezel that doesn't intrude on the display, and still have a higher screen to body ratio that the iPhone X, just like Samsung has done.

Looks beautiful especially when I compare it to the notch on my OP6. That being said I will probably wait till Note10 to upgrade since I really don't wanna upgrade more than once a year.

Note 10 all the way. But i am curious what the foldable phone will be like.

That front design seems to borrow heavily from the oppo find x except for the hole

At least the bottom bezel won’t look ridiculous and jarring like these other Android phone makers. I can get used to the dual-camera cutout. They don’t need it though honestly. Just provide a bigger sensor and give us what we want; better image quality in day and lowlight.

Looks like you have to use a big black bar in software to hide that camera if looking at media. These can’t be real.

Nope. Bad design, just like the notch.
