8 bezel-less smartphones you should check out
HIGHLIGHTS

If you are looking for a phone that will turn heads, then then look no further than these eight devices

Faster processors, slimmer designs, metal bodies, iris scanners and now bezel-less displays, it seems like there is a new trend in the market and we love it. Phones with slimmer bezels are really enticing and look damn good. Moreover, shrinking the bezels increases the area of the display, giving you more screen area without sacrificing ergonomics. 

At the same time, having a bezel-less display increases the fragility of the device. This is one of the reasons, why it is still not a mainstream feature, besides the technology being relatively expensive of course. Still, we are seeing newer phones offering bezel-less designs starting at below Rs. 20,000, and going as high as Rs. 60,000. So, we decided to make a list of the best bezel-less phones that you should check out.

Essential Phone

Launched just this week, the Essential Phone is made by the father of Android, Andy Rubin himself. This phone will start shipping in the US later this year. The company has not revealed any plans to bring the device to India, but we are hopeful that it will grace us with its presence.

Specs: 

Display: 5.5-inch, 2560 x 1312 pixels

SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 835

RAM: 4GB

Storage: 128GB

Rear Camera: Dual 13MP

Front Camera: 8MP

Battery: 3040mAh

Samsung Galaxy S8

The Samsung Galaxy S8 does not need any introduction as it is currently one of the best Android phones you can buy today. The company has been honing the curved ‘Edge’ display for quite some time now and this time it may have perfected it. The phone looks amazing, but please don’t drop it.

Specs: 

Display: 5.8-inch, 2960 x 1440 pixels

SoC: Exynos 8895

RAM: 4GB

Storage: 64GB

Rear Camera: 12MP

Front Camera: 8MP

Battery: 3000mAh

LG G6(₹ 30000 at flipkart)

Like Samsung, LG is also using a taller 18:9 aspect ratio on its latest flagship, but the design approach is completely different as it does not feature a curved display. The LG G6, with its ultra thin bezels sports one of the most subtle and understated designs on a flagship this year.

Specs: 

Display: 5.5-inch, 2880 x 1440 pixels

SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 821

RAM: 4GB

Storage: 64GB

Rear Camera: Dual 13MP

Front Camera: 5MP

Battery: 3300mAh

ZTE Nubia Z11

Going down the price segments, we have the ZTE Nubia Z11, which may not be as premium as the devices by LG or Samsung, but still manages to be a very cool looking device. In addition, the phone is a good performer thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 platform.

Specs: 

Display: 5.5-inch, 1920 x 1080 pixels

SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820

RAM: 6GB

Storage: 64GB

Rear Camera: 16MP

Front Camera: 8MP

Battery: 3000mAh

Sony Xperia XA1(₹ 11999 at amazon)

If you are looking or a phone under the sub-20K segment, then the Sony Xperia XA1 is the only bezel-less option you got right now. The rather small, 5-inch device is powered by a MediaTek Helio P20 SoC and carries the same 23MP camera Sony used in its previous flagships phones.

Specs: 

Display: 5-inch, 1280 x 720 pixels

SoC: MediaTek Helio P20

RAM: 3GB

Storage: 32GB

Rear Camera: 23MP

Front Camera: 8MP

Battery: 2300mAh

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is also a pretty good option to consider if you want a curved edge display, but cannot afford the new Galaxy S8. While it may be last year's flagship, it is still quite a powerful device and has pretty much the same camera as the newer phone.

Specs: 

Display: 5.5-inch, 2560 x 1440 pixels

SoC: Exynos 8890

RAM: 4GB

Storage: 32GB

Rear Camera: 12MP

Front Camera: 5MP

Battery: 3600mAh

Xiaomi Mi Mix

Xiaomi made heads turn when they announced the Mi Mix last year. While the phone is quite big and heavy, it is still one of the best takes on a bezel-less device.

Specs:

Display: 6.4-inch, 2040 x 1080 pixels

SoC: Qualcomm Snaapdragon 821

RAM: 4GB/6GB

Storage: 128GB/256GB

Rear Camera: 16MP

Front Camera: 5MP

Battery: 4400mAh

Sharp Aquos Crystal

Launched way back in 2014, Sharp’s Aquos Crystal smartphone was the first phone to offer an almost frameless or bezel-less design. While it may be a three years old, the device still looks better than most monst that are currently available in the market.

Specs: 

Display: 5-inch, 1280 x 720 pixels

SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 400

RAM: 1.5GB

Storage: 8GB

Rear Camera: 8MP

Front Camera: 1.2MP

Battery: 2040mAh
