Why all android phones with notch are having bottom bezel ?

    All the android smartphones (eg. vivo v9, huawei p20, oppo R15, zeonfone 5 ) who are copyng notch design from apple are having one thing in common unlike apple iphone X, THE BOTTOM BEZEL !!
    So, I was wondering is there any particular reason for adding the bottom bezel ? Cause its making the phone look more asymmetric. Firstly they are copying the design flaw of apple and making it trend... and secondly they are making it worse by adding that bottom bezel... I tried to google it but couldn't find explanation.... So please anybody can explain ?
    (*sorry for bad english)

    Because they have to be priced competitively and thereby don't have the financial resources for the craftsmanship that goes into the iPhone X for it to NOT have a chin.

    Android has a lot more components than the iPhone.

    I am no product developer but i don't think there are extra hardware components in android phone compared to an iphone...(apart from a headphone jack)

    I could imagine that the charing port + loud speaker components could be a reason. Maybe the type c ports are bigger then the lightning port.
    Or its just a thing of agronomy. To have a place where you can rest your fingers at the front of the phone. (but that doesn't make that much sense...)

    I am a hardware and software developer on the side. Sure I've had help, but compared to the iPhone the Android has much bigger components hence why the nm processor size had to be made to fit all of the components. So the extra small chin is just give some space to move around and such. Apple also had to cut out touch ID to get to that size, whereas Android leaves fingerprint sensors in devices since fingerprint unlock is much more secure than facial unlock.

    Another thing is nobody wants to accidentally hit the home button. So the extra chin helps for the use of the device.

    I heard it's there to fit the connector somehow.

    Smartphone panels require some space at the bottom to put a ribbon that connects the display to the device’s logic board. That small ribbon works as a bridge to draw power from the logic board and supply it to the display. This explains the bottom chin situation in the Android world. But then again, how did Apple achieve it?

    What Apple did here is they used a curved AMOLED panel that takes a U-turn from the bottom and then they put the required ribbon at the back of the device. This may sound simple, but the process is both expensive and impractical for other OEMs. This solution adds thickness to a phone and the companies will need to pour more in R&D to restructure the components inside the device. And most importantly, the curved AMOLED panels are even more expensive. Android manufacturers already run on razor thin margins and this solution simply is not economical for them. After all, Apple is going to charge $1000 for that full-screen device while Android OEMs don’t have that luxury.

    This is the real reason.

    It's not. There is no curved screen inside of the iPhone X. But it's true that the connector is why there's a bottom bezel. I know that the curved screen is a false rumor but I really don't know yet how they managed to do that. I'll do some researchs.

    The ribbon (that connect the screen to the motherboard) is bent behind the bottom of the screen. The consequences is that the connection is a lot more fragile.

    Because they're petty ripoffs...
    They don't know how to design and they hardly know how to copy...

    the whole screen should be curved from bottom to backward to connect the wiring of screen it is costier than bejel that's why I phone is too costier Android may not afford this curveness of screen to keep their phone less costier that why most of Android phone have bejel at the botrom
