You cannot get a flagship Samsung phone without a curved screen.
You cannot get a QHD+ OnePlus phone without a curved screen.
There are other brands, but people looking for Samsung's ecosystem or the best custom development brand available (OnePlus) will have to compromise.

You always must go for a compromise. In this case technology restrictions are not an excuse it is just someones sense of beauty which all other people must accept. I admit it looks fine but it is a ergonomy nightmare. I was using Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge + which was one of the first curved screen phones and I bought Galaxy S8+ 2 years later, now I use OnePlus 7 Pro all screens are curved but my choices were not dictated by the curved screen option and if I could choose I would go for a flat screen.

Today we have plenty of alternatives to choose. And soon after the MWC 2020 even more. So they can keep their curves and punch holes in their shops that i have a lot of phones to choose with the look i want and the features i need.
No ones need to buy a phone he don't likes because there is no alternative or have to compromise anything. Research a bit and you'll find the right one for you without compromises. Waiting for the MWC and watch all the new models upcoming.

Look at Samsung's flagship offerings. They all have curved screens.

Based on the image, only the Lite version is using the flat screen while the other two versions are using the curve screen. Many users need the high-end spec, excluded the curve screen, like the pro version. No more purchasing desire!
punch hole should in center atleast, being on side destroys the symmetry and bugs alot to eyes
oh god....why are they using punch-hole on the display. It fully destroy the uninterrupted display as in the 7T Pro. Sad indeed.
If Pete had guts, I'd slap a headphone jack on the Lite and watch that fly off the shelves more than at least the OnePlus 8.
That'll show them for removing it...
Unless these phones bring back the headphone jack, give us a Hybrid Dual SIM so we get a choice, AND have at least a 5,000 mAH battery, I'm skipping it again for the 3rd year in a row.
A lot of comments here dissing the hole punch. I reckon OP8P will have IP rating this year, so they have to go with hole punch instead of a pop up...
Just my 2 cents. I would rather a hole punch and IP68, than motorised pop up cam
the missing punch hole (or notch) from a flagship level phone was a serious reason to purchase one plus instead of S10. With that gone, I really don't think it will stand out. Price is not really a factor when it comes to flagships.
Thess dimensity SoC seem interesting lets see how it performs in real world
