Elephone P9000 Edge (Bezel-less)
Not to be confused with the P9000 or P9000 lite which are each obtainable with slender bezels, the P9000 edge makes use of curved glass and shows no visible borders when seen face on. Elephone have been preserving details of the P9000 Edge underneath wraps up to now with just a few footage and movies leaked of the gadget.
I’ve a hunch that Elephone are both; capitalising on gross sales of the P9000, with its thin bezels, earlier than releasing the bezel-less ‘edge’ version or that their improvement group still have software issues to beat earlier than with the ability to launch the P9000 Edge.
A third choice that we’ve to think about is that the P9000 edge is only a advertising ploy by Elephone to increase model consciousness though a sources say that the utterly bezel-less P900 does exist.
It’s more likely to have comparable hardware to the P9000, so I’ve listed the current specifications under though these might change earlier than launch.

ZTE Nubia Z9
The Nubia Z9’s curved glass edges and virtually borderless show mix to make one attractive wanting smartphone. The superbly vivid IPS show and glass sandwich design provides the Z9 a premium look and feels suited to a flagship smartphone.
Add to this some impressive photography capabilities and that glowing halo house button and the Nubia Z9 turns into even more impressive.
Though the Z9 was launched in 2015, it’s still an awesome bezel-less choice for 2016 should you can manage to get your arms on one. I’ve not had much luck discovering on-line retailers that also have stock out there. At present, Nubia are focussing more on the Z9 Max 5.5″ model and the Z9 mini, but neither have the finesse or bezel-less edges of their older trend-setting brother the Nubia Z9.
Hopefully, Nubia will make a return to the bezel-less area soon with one other flagship model.

Oppo Bezel-free telephone
Some time again now, there was a video leaked of a new Oppo smartphone that appears to have a bezel-less design. The telephone in question uses a wrap round front glass effect so we will’t be solely certain whether this can be a trick of the eye.
You possibly can see the Oppo Bezel-less video here. We haven’t had confirmation from Oppo whether or not they may release any phones with this know-how this yr however with the competitors hotting up I feel it’s doubtless we’ll in the direction of the top of the yr.
We haven’t had affirmation from Oppo whether they will launch any bezel-less phones this yr however with the competitors hotting up I feel it’s we’ll see the mysterious Oppo telephone resurface in the direction of the top of the yr.
The Oppo Discover 7 Plus at first look provides the illusion of a completely bezel-less telephone but this phantasm ends as quickly because the display is lively where you’ll be able to clearly see black borders.
I’ll update this with more info once we find out more on whether or not Oppo plans to launch a genuinely bezel-less smartphone.
The know-how behind Bezel-free phones
You is perhaps wondering why it’s taken manufacturers so long to catch up with Samsung and produce price range variants of the bezel-less display? Let’s break it down into two reasons.
Cause number one is the fee & analysis needed to supply bezel-less know-how.
An organization comparable to Samsung has the cash, assets & research to be able to create new kinds of know-how comparable to a completely border-less wrap-around display. Smaller cellular manufacturers are likely to outsource their elements which suggests they’ve to wait for 3rd celebration suppliers to innovate earlier than catching up with the market leaders.
Purpose number 2 is that producers have had to create their own bezel-less software.
Should you remove a smartphone display bezel totally, you then create one other set of problems to overcome. When holding a telephone, your arms will probably be gripping the sides of the display barely. On a telephone with bezels, this isn’t an issue as you’ve got an area on no-touch on the sides of the cellular display. On a bezel-less telephone, the display might be registering these additional touches. To combat this, cellular manufacturers have to develop software program that may recognise the distinction between your hand gripping the telephone and your hand making an attempt to use the telephone.
