      Duck of death, 25 Nov 2018Because physics?Yup, Sony once goes all the way providing different material for the corner frame just to make it more shock absorbent and able to survive accidental drop.
      Samsung understandably avoid putting the camera on such dangerous area.

      "[Chinese brand] did it."
      How's the warranty for that particular damage by the way?

          not really!
          it can become STH like teardrop notch!(please do not mistaken i do not mean exactly like teardrop, a word for goofi guys)

            Samsung be like: Ok now stop making a lot of letters and just go for A8
            A8
            A8plus
            A8s
            A8p

                    Mon the press pictures the Infinity-O looks OK. But this pic shows that it's no different than the notch. By leaving the black rim around the hole would compensate this a little....but in my eye this is a no, i rather see the whole picture than a "broken" one

                          Big Ak, 25 Nov 2018Why not move the punch hole design all the way to one corne... moreBecause physics?

                            I think it's about time that a selfie camera becomes a modular hardware instead.
                            Take this, not all people use the front camera, regardless of how great it is. It simply is rarely used.
                            Sliders are no-go for build quality concerns, so the front camera module could be attached like on Moto Z phones or such.
                            Now there's the topic of having to carry another phone accessory, but I'd personally would prefer to carry a front camera module around rather than a 3.5mm jack dongle, because if there's only one thing that could be taken away from a phone that wouldn't affect my daily life, it's definitely the front camera.
                            Another thing is, with the front camera now being a separate hardware attachment, they could be made in larger sensor varieties for even better image quality.

                              Big Ak, 25 Nov 2018Why not move the punch hole design all the way to one corne... moreBecause it would then be pretty hard to fit the camera sensor in that tiny corner.
                              The lens simply can't be on the extreme sides, because the sensor takes up some space from it.

                                Why not move the punch hole design all the way to one corner? It would take up very little of the screen space, considering a good part of the hole would be in the bezzel? I think it would look much cleaner that way.

                                  welp, I was hoping that samsung would finally catch up with Apple after all this time and get rid of the notch too...

                                        Anonymous, 25 Nov 2018It's asymmetrical. Notch is better, on the center. why ... moreLol
                                        Notch is better then a small hole? It shows how much you hate Samsung. Just welcome to a new tech.. if it's not good... people will not buy... It's not like before..we have so many options out there

                                        And front camera , believe me... Most of the pics taken by the people are from front camera.. and the only way for video calls
