The Galaxy S10 has gotten leaked yet again, this time by a more reputable source than usual. There are plenty of rumors surrounding the handset series, but nobody knows for sure just where the “punch hole” style selfie camera is going to be placed.

According to renders published by Forbes and obtained from casemaker Ghostek, Samsung is going to put its selfie lens on the top-right corner of the Galaxy S10. This is the most common design in the leaks so far, mostly because the company itself showed off the look on stage as the Infinity-O.

Samsung Galaxy S10: Triple or Dual Cameras?

Ghostek has a pretty solid reputation when it comes to sneak peeks at future handsets. It’s previously taken the veil off the iPhone XR and Galaxy S9. Still, the render above can’t be taken as fact yet. To be clear, it’s supposed to be an image of the standard Galaxy S10. The other expected models are a basic Galaxy S10, a premium Galaxy S10+, and a 5G Galaxy S10.

The Galaxy S10 in the photo above has a triple-camera system at the back and single selfie lens at the front. Twitter tipster Ice Universe recently shared his own image of the smartphone which featured twin rear snappers. We’re not sure who’s right here. To make matters even more confusing, the Galaxy S10+ is expected to grab 4 rear cameras.

Not only that, the Plus version of the flagship series may sport dual shooters on the display as well. You can see this in action in the concept image above. It would make sense for Samsung to broaden the status bar so it can fit the hole.

You’ll presumably be able to choose if you want to view content like games or videos in full screen or in a smaller format to avoid the cutout. Perhaps it’ll become one of those things which you ignore or don’t even notice, just like the iPhone’s notch. It’s a big gamble for Samsung, but at least you can call it an original effort.
