It is, probably, the only possible way, because modern smartphones are too thin. Of course, you can try bending it 180 degress twice to get an S-shaped screen of the bottom instead of U-shaped, but that's most likely covered in the patent or is just too costly or hard.
Well, from a designer perspective, a chin is no good. However, Apple can't bend IPS, so they ended up with equally thick as hell bezels on an iPhone Xr. Is it good visually? Not really. Not to mention, some smartphones, like a Vivo Apex/Nex, has the chin only a little bit thicker than bezels on an iPhone X without any screen bending ( https://i.imgur.com/Nl4GiKa.png ). An iPhone may look symmetric enough (the back cover is a bit of a let down here though), but, honestly, is a total loser here visually.
Heard the latest rumor that the P30 will be curved screen and quad camera. Will the Honor 20 be a single camera or at least triple camera phone....

You are free to bend your OLED in your way of method. The fact being it is relatively costly and affects the price of the product.
If the manufacturer can save the price, then great. But, from a designer perspective it does break the symmetry principles.
Antidumb, 13 Dec 2018They can cut hole on display, but still cannot get off the Chin!!! bulls***Because patent issues. Apple patented bending OLED to get rid of chin, so the screen controller lies not on the bottom of the screen, but behind it.

Djeez, so many people have no blo... morewhich in this article stated its display type? I know exactly how display works
let me tell you Iphone X can get rid from chin (apple can make chin and side bezel look like it have same size), no android phone until this comment written have no chin, even mi mix, find x, etc that claim full display have it. Iphone x still got the smallest chin in smartphone world

Djeez, so many people have no bloody idea how things work with their ridiculous remarks.
Amoled screens would have a smaller bezel all-around because they don't need backlight or sidelight. But backlight would make the LCD-panel thicker so the onlya to make a device thin is a sidelit-LCD. Which should be obvious!

xXENDER FREAKXx, 13 Dec 2018LoL xDI really cannot wait to switch off this. If the S10 isn't an embarrassment, then I'll go for that
Sonu4678, 13 Dec 2018Lol, that's pen!s in Japanese.*sharp intake of breath*
So it's not a compliment?
Pretty thick borders... is that to be expected with all flat displays?
Walter C. Dornez, 13 Dec 2018That's not a chin. *Points at iPhone's bottom chin* THIS is a chin XDLoL xD
xXENDER FREAKXx, 13 Dec 2018Well that's a chin right there alright...That's not a chin.
*Points at iPhone's bottom chin*

Have you noticed that the article with the horrible V20 camera samples has vanished? Huawei not happy with the comments? Better fire their camera software team rather than take offence
gam30to, 13 Dec 2018everything is missed out. Horrible comparison. Auch. Ok.
