OnePlus One 5.5-inch screen should be flanked by some incredibly narrow bezels
Slowly but surely, new information about the OnePlus One CyanogenMod phone has been arriving. Last week we saw the company divulge the details behind its choice of SoC, with the promise that full specs on the phone would land sometime this week. Rather than dumping everything all at once, we’ve instead seen OnePlus reveal the specs little by little. The company just shared news of a 3100mAh battery with some sort of special “mystery tech,” and today follows up with news about the One’s screen.
It’s going to be a 5.5-inch 1080p component, using touch-on-lens tech to enhance both touch accuracy and image quality, and employing power-saving features to supposedly draw less juice than even traditional five-inch screens.
But the really interesting part isn’t so much the display itself, but how it’s going to fit in with the rest of the phone’s chassis: get ready for some crazy narrow bezels. Specifically, OnePlus says that despite the One’s 5.5-inch screen, the handset itself will be smaller than Sony’s Xperia Z1, which only has a 5.0-inch screen. It even teases us with the image above of a Z1, insisting that there’s a OnePlus One underneath.
We’d still like to get a clear frontal look at the One and check out these bezels for ourselves, but we can’t deny that we’re intrigued.
