It's like asking why do all cars have to have 4 wheels to be stable, when there are 3 wheeled cars also. It's why we have only one opposable thumb. The notch doesn't make sense, only as a stepping stone.
There is one straight path in phone design evolution, and all these sidetracking trends will die off.
The optimal design phone is full screen with slim bezels on all sides. No big or small notch. No chin. Those are a necessary step in evolution, but not one that will survive.
Fold-able displays/phones will change this path, and take it further. but till than we need time to see the evolutionary steps.

They slowing the design cyles so it is thinks like newer design. Now I know the F12 will not has chin.
the vision is broken, and they proud of it.
the notched waterfall is creative visual though
F7 had 25MP front camera what will this have 48MP with Quad Bayer?
How about a notchless phone without a front camera? That's innovation ;)
