Samsung is going all-in by the square camera setup on all of its future smartphones. The forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite approximately Samsung Galaxy A91 will also have the equal camera design.
Samsung is going all-in with this hideous camera design on almost all of its upcoming smartphones. We saw this first on the Galaxy M30s, then on Galaxy A51, A71, on all the Galaxy S11 devices and now on the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite too. Onleaks revealed the first look of the S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite and they show familiar design, single punch hole camera up front, and square or rectangular camera at the back.
It’s been now suggested that Samsung could rename the S10 Lite to Galaxy A91 which isn’t official yet by the way but we’ll know soon enough. So as you can see this is going to be the new design direction that Samsung is taking. A punch-hole camera at the front and a rectangle or square camera setup at the back. One thing that’s so weird to me is their midrange and their flagships now all look the same. Yes, the curved screens set the expensive S and Note series apart but the basic design language is almost similar.
I’m not really complaining but also at the same time I think it’s kinda not fair for people who spend thousands of dollars on their flagships. And then they see a $400 phone from the same company which also has a similar design if not the same. Anyway, the S10 Lite has curved displays and all the buttons are placed on the right much like the upcoming Galaxy S11.
Now as you can see Onleaks posted two pictures with different numbers of cameras. He isn’t sure about whether it’s going to be 3 or 4. But the last time we heard it was mentioned three with this camera configuration. So it’s safe to say the left picture is the accurate one but we’ll know for sure once the device is made official which could happen this month itself. We also have the first look at the Galaxy Note 10 Lite.
And the same story continues. Single punch hole camera upfront, square camera design at the back. The render is rather dark so you can’t see much but you can make out the overall design. Couple of interesting things to Note here from this render. First, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite will have the headphone jack. It makes sense because the Note 10 Lite is going to be an upper midrange phone and Samsung isn’t getting rid of the headphone jack on mid-range phones just yet.
The basic idea is people who have the money to spend thousands of dollars on flagships can spend an extra 200 to get a nice pair of wireless earbuds, people who buy midrange, on the other hand, are less likely to spend extra money on wireless headphones. So the headphone jack stays on the midrange phones for now but I’m positive it’s not going to be the case for long.
The second interesting thing is, the display is going to be flat. Ishan Agarwal says he believes the display to be flat but he isn’t sure yet but if it indeed is flat then it’s good news for a lot of people. I saw many of you commented here that you want to use the S-Pen on a flat display and it looks like that could indeed happen.
