That resistor is a "pull-up" resistor. Designers use pull-up (or pull-down) resistors so that the state of the signal, in this case BUTTON_TO_AP_HOLD_KEY_L, is in a known state; in this case @ 1.8V (or "high" or "1") unless the line is brought down to 0V.

The line designator explains what it does...button (hold key) to application processor with an active "Low" signal. Basically, if the Power button is pressed, it's signal will go Low and it will notify both the PMIC and the CPU of this for appropriate downstream actions. Just follow it through the schematic to see where it goes.

EDIT 2017/10/6

Think of the circuit like this:

Now imagine that you cut a line or remove components and you will have a better understanding of what the impact is.

and basically what is the utility of such line


thank u very much

this line is come from power ic and divided into 2 line

so if the one to power switch key is ok

but we removed or cut the other one going to gpu

what will happen
