Nokia 7+ live photo shows off the handset's thin bezels and 18:9 aspect ratio

We’ve seen images of the Nokia 7+ before, but today we have a new live photograph that shows the upcoming device’s lock screen and thin bezels. The Nokia 7+ is the first handset from Nokia licensee HMD Global to feature the so called “near bezel-less” display that is all the rage these days. Part of that look includes the use of an 18:9 aspect ratio, which results from the 1080 x 2160 (FHD+) resolution employed on the unit’s 6-inch screen.

Speaking of the display, it also will be the first Nokia smartphone to feature a screen with rounded corners. Under the hood you’ll find the Snapdragon …

HTC U12 render surfaces revealing very thin bezels, no front-facing fingerprint scanner

The HTC U11 was arguably the best flagship phone from HTC in some time.

One small problem though; the HTC U11+ was not widely distributed, and certainly was not available in the U.S. Keeping all of this in mind, you would expect that the HTC 12 will have all of the features that came with the U11+ Besides the thin bezels, that would include an IP68 certification rating and a large capacity battery.

Today, a render has appeared that allegedly shows …
