This is just a case where Samsung only does the software, and the hardware design including selection of components is done by the ODM. Samsung will participate for external casing design, that's all.

I wonder if Samsung will handle the updates for this device like they do for their regular midrangers, or if the ODM will handle the updates (in which case, NO updates!).

So now it's Samsung's turn to follow Chinese design.

if it's manufactured in china, then it should match the price with other chinese brand

Like fashion we always mimics what already exist. Even every door knob position is the same. I dont see a problem with something that has been normalized.

also one more thing they dont reaveal their sales numbers to attract dump customers like you so they are top in the samartphone sales industry

so these are some models bearing the name of Samsung, but not the quality of Samsung?
Why did so? in long term, the name of Samsung will be harmed

The way the cameras are designed and where they are exactly positioned on Androids is exactly an iPhone reference. Vertical dual cameras can be done without having to be an iPhone-style (Huawei Mate 10 devices, XZ2 Premium, Galaxy Note 8/S9/S9+/Note 9, etc.), but the vast majority are lazy to create their own style and instead blatantly mimics what already exists, which further lessens the chance of a distinguishable design signature from individual brands.
Cameras are supposed to be in the middle of the phone in order to lessen the chance of smudging the lens. And don't you wonder why vertical and dual cameras on the upper left corner starts becoming a design signature after Apple started doing them?? Yeah, it's not copying......LOL

You and I don`t have to like notches, but most phone buying people seems to like them at this moment more than non notch phones.

Good luck Samsung, hope this time you will do better than than with the C series a couple years ago.... China brands are more willing to use the super midrange chipset now.....

To be clear all the critisicism here is meaningless. Do you guys even know what ODM means? ODM sells phone to other company and rebrand it. The purpose of ODM device is immediate profit. They make non sustainable brands and if it fails they simply change the name. There is no intention to actually improve the product so save your time from giving out ideas they should do this or that. One thing for sure they all are made to be super cheap than OEM devices.
