Apple's iPhone XR was just our newest example of mob phone. OEMs have made the term bezel-less, with massive borders and frames around the screen, despite being allegedly invisible.
Samsung, however, is not satisfied with state of the art and has patented a design that would get rid of the edge of all four sides of the smartphone, allowing the screen to flow across all edges of the device, making it really bezel-less.
Commented on by LetsGoDigital, the patent contains an image of a prototype design that shows the edges containing useful icons and other extracts of information.
The patent specifies the use of flexible displays to achieve performance and attach a support (possibly via glue) to seal edges under the handset.
It is not clear how far this type of device is from production, but it would necessarily require a phone that is also portless, without buttons, in-display camera and fingerprint readings, no headphone jack and to and with only wireless charging.
Will our readers be ready to give up their gates for such a sexy design? Please let us know below.
