Why frameless smartphone "chin"? Huawei dotted i

Huawei recently released the new flagships P30 and P30 Pro. There is a new cutout in the screen, the display of the older

version became rounded on the sides, but the “chins” at the bottom of the displays remained. During a recent interview, Huawei CEO Richard Yu explained why a frameless flagship needs a bottom frame.

What for?

According to the head of the company, smartphones need “chins”: as it turns out, they are the ones that save both the device and its owner from false positives.

“If you look at the P30, you’ll see thatThe bottom frame is really small. In fact, the bottom bezel of the P30 is even smaller than that of the P30 Pro. We can make the chin even narrower, but then it won’t be very comfortable to use the phone,” said Richard Yu. “The reason we didn’t completely remove the bottom frame is because of accidental presses. If there was no chin, every time you want to swipe from the bottom of the screen, the display may respond to this gesture as if it were a tap.”

However, it is possible that Richard Yu was a little goofy, and the frame is needed, first of all, due to the design limitations of smartphones.

In any case, for now Huawei is not going to give up “chins”, even in its flagship models. Instead, the company will focus on reducing the side bezels.
