The Galaxy Note 10 might have its selfie camera in the center... do you think that'd look good?
Samsung skipped on the whole Notch fad only to join the punch-hole movement in 2019. The Galaxy S10 trio has edge-to-edge screens with just a tiny cutout at their top right for the selfie camera. Some people still hate it, others got used to it or don't mind it entirely. Hey, it's neat, it's clean, it's tucked away in the corner of the display — not a huge issue, right?

We've been hearing for a while that the Note 10 might change that, though. Reportedly, Samsung doesn't want the Note 10 to be just a Galaxy S10++, so it's moving some things around, rethinking the design, and making it look like a phone of its own kind. And one of the changes would be — allegedly — the placement of the selfie camera hole.

Instead of being in the top-right, it would be right in the top center portion of the screen. Kind of like a waterdrop-style notch, only without the waterdrop. So, instead of being tucked away and hidden, it looks like the punch hole might be a lot more prominent and visible. Do you like how that looks on the preliminary renders? Or do you prefer to have the Galaxy S10-style hole?

Do you prefer the punch hole in the middle or tucked to the side?

Center looks better in my opinion. However, I'm not sure how I feel with the power button on the left side of the phone....

No, it doesn't. You missed that in this useless poll.

But why would it only have 1 Selfie camera?

For the price they're likely to charge they should make the damn thing invisible.

Omg look at those bezels... S10+ and S10 5G are worlds most bezelless phones with ~89% screen to body ratio and this looks beyond them! And don't forget, this is just a little brother of Note10 Pro...

The top bezel is slightly larger on the Note 10 but its bottom bezel appears to be smaller than the S10. Also keep in mind that these are concept renders...not actual renders from Samsung so take it with a grain of salt.

The teardrop way just makes more sense. However the camera on the right and s10/s10e is okay with me.

Doesn't matter to me. Just hurry and get here.

As an Essential owner I can attest to the fact that the very small notch being at the very center of the display where it doesn't interact with anything makes the most sense. The wide notches interfere too much and a hole punch FFC being off center sounds like a nightmare for notification bar info.
