Why "leaky" display?

The predecessors Redmi K20 and K30 Pro were equipped withretractable front camera modules. However, all three representatives of the Redmi K40 line received a new design with a neat round cutout in the center of the display. Why?

According to Lu Weibing, using a retractable camerathe developers tried to achieve the maximum effective display area.
