Screens go bezel-less

NEARLY 45 percent of smartphones sold in 2018 are expected to feature bezel-less screens, which offer consumers “full display experience” of better image quality, an industry report said yesterday.

Top Chinese smartphone makers such as Vivo, Xiaomi and Oppo will launch new bezel-less screen models featuring “full display” features within the following weeks.

This year, 44.6 percent of smartphones sold globally will have bezel-less “full display” screen, up sharply from 8.7 percent in 2017. The figure will hit 92.1 percent in 2021, according to TrendForce, a Taiwan-based research firm.

But many vendors have also adopted the “notch” design used in Apple’s iPhone X, industry insiders said.

The “notch” design, which supports facial recognition, will be adopted in many new models, according to industry insiders.
