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. While it didn’t feature the 18:9 aspect ratio and thin bezels that the competition sported, HTC made up for these oversights with the HTC U11+. 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 …

Two of Sony's Xperia phones of 2018 may look like this (thin bezels everywhere)


In a shift from its current design philosophy, in 2018, Sony
may release at least two Xperia smartphones that sport near-bezel-less
displays. As recently reported, one of these upcoming handsets could be a flagship
successor to this year’s Xperia XZ Premium.

Reportedly, the renders that we’re seeing in this article
are based on Sony’s own design drafts. The handset with less …

The best thin cases for the Google Pixel 2 XL

The Google Pixel 2 XL is a marvel of modern technology. In line with today’s trends in the smartphone world, it rocks an 18:9 screen with thin bezels all around it — fitting more content while remaining narrow enough for a palm to hold.

And here, the user faces a dilemma: “I want to put a case on it, but I don’t want to lose the benefit of those slim bezels by adding a bulky armor”. Thankfully, there are plenty of thin cases out there to alleviate that!

They stick close to the phone’s original profile, retain the premium clicky feel of its buttons, add better …

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, …
