Honor 7X, sporting the premium thin bezels look at an affordable price, is coming to the U.S.

Looking for a phone that looks like an expensive new handset with thin bezels, an 18:9 aspect ratio, but doesn’t cost an arm and a leg? Then buddy, have we got news for you. Last month we introduced you to the Honor 7X, a mid-range offering from Huawei’s sub-brand that aims to look like an expensive top shelf model. Launched in China on October 17th, word came out today that other countries are destined to receive the Honor 7X. We should be hearing more about this on December 5th.

The Honor 7X features a 5.93-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160. Even if you failed basic math 101, …


The best thin and light iPhone X cases and covers

Thin, light, clear, rugged or leather – there are already cases from most major manufacturers for your precious iPhone X, including Apple’s official ones. With the new gear priced at $999 for the basic 64 GB model, and Apple’s repair services more expensive now, you might want to order a case before the handset hits your front porch. 
Condom case jokes aside, there are ultrathin iPhone wrappers out there that take the “barely there” term to the next level. The new Apple iPhone X comes clad in gorgeous reinforced glass this year, instead of the metal housing …

Nokia 9 renders reveal thin bezels, lack of headphone jack

HMD isn’t supposed to launch another flagship by the end of the year, so if you’re hoping the rumored Nokia 9 will somewhat make its way to the market soon, then you’ll be disappointed. The Finnish company is expected to introduce at least three new handsets early next year: Nokia 2, 7 and 9.

Pictures of the Nokia 2 have already leaked out last month, but no credible Nokia 9 imagery emerged until now. OnLeaks has decided to render HMD’s upcoming flagship and provide us with a better look of what’s to come.

These renders are based on CAD files of the Nokia …

Poll results: have bezels gotten too thin?

It seems that the war against the bezel has not yet been won. But let us explain what we mean. This year, the Galaxy S8, the Note 8, the LG G6 and V30, the iPhone X, and a whole ton of smaller name manufacturer phones are coming out with an all-display front that looks a lot like what concept designers dreamed of back in 2012.

But the future is here, and we can finally place such a device in our hands. And… they are not all that great to handle, are they? It takes just a few seconds for a user that has no experience with Samsung’s Galaxy S8 to ask “Wait, how do …

Google Pixel 2 XL flaunts its (not too) thin bezels in new leaked photos

The Pixel 2 XL is one of Google’s upcoming smartphones
that’s manufactured by LG (while the Pixel 2 is made by HTC), and perhaps
that’s why it’ll offer a near-bezel-less screen reminiscent of the LG G6 or LG
V30. While we’ve already seen various images and renders allegedly showing the
Pixel 2 XL, we can now take a look at a new photo that seemingly confirms the
fact that the device has thin bezels around its display (a 6-inch one, if
rumors are correct).

 

Posted on Twitter by Evan Blass (@evleaks), the new image
shows the Google Pixel 2 XL inside a protective case. Even so, the near-bezel-less, …

Alleged Google Pixel XL (2017) design revealed: Thin bezels are in

While it may have been working on three different new Pixel phones for this year, Google will ultimately release only two models – at least if the latest rumors turn out to be correct. These two models should be a 5-inch Pixel to directly succeed the original Pixel of 2016, and a larger handset codenamed Taimen.

Possibly called Google Pixel XL 2017, or maybe Pixel 2 XL, the Taimen is – according to Android Police, a 6-inch smartphone that’s manufactured by LG and resembles the device seen in the render below.

Android Police is “exceptionally confident” that the renders below reveal …

Barely there: the best thin and light Galaxy S8/S8+cases

Samsung unveiled a bunch of cases and intriguing accessories together with the newly-minted Galaxy S8 and S8+. Barring the 2Piece abomination that serves a mysterious purpose, some of those are pretty well thought-out, so you might pick one of the official wrappers to go with your fresh S8. 
That’s if you have money to burn, though, as we all know that third-party makers will be filling the value-for-money void in no time with their own cases for the Galaxy S8. Here’s a preliminary shortlist of a few worthy thin …

Supposed OPPO Find 9 renders show extra thin bezels and all-screen design

When it comes to elusive smartphones, the Oppo Find 9 has to be it. If we had “vaporware” awards here at PhoneArena, this one would have won for two years in a row now. Announced back in March 2014, the Chinese company’s then-flagship smartphone, the Oppo Find 7 (which succeeded the Find 5), has been left without a heir since – which is incredibly unusual, considering the rapid pace of smartphone development where six-month upgrades (and sometimes less) are hardly surprising. We basically assumed that Oppo quietly retired its Find line in favor of its R-series, yet the odd Find 9 rumor keeps rearing …
