F19’s 6.4” large screen has a 90.8% ultra-high screen-to-body ratio, which is comparable to the high-end F19 Pro’s display in terms of the real estate. To maximize the space dedicated to the screen, the front-facing camera uses a tiny 3.688 mm punch-hole camera with super-thin 1.60 mm bezels. Embedded in the bezels around the camera is a Hole-punch light ring, which lights up when you receive a call or use the front camera. This means for a phone that’s nearly all screen you’ll enjoy clear and delicate images on a large mobile screen so you’ll be fully immersed in your favorite TV shows or mobile games.
