One of the things most smartphone users dream of is a device which will have a very thin bezel or none at all. Besides the fact that it would look awesome, it would allow manufacturers to produce smaller devices (that is fitting a larger screen in a case destined for a smaller one).
Samsung might have figured out a way to do just this. According to recent reports, the South Korean manufacturer is likely to reveal a “bezel-less” phone sometime in the second or third quarter. Rumor has it Samsung has been working on this particular device for quite some time and, when (if) it will launch, it will allegedly wear the “Galaxy B” moniker. The bezel will only extend at the top, as rumors indicate, in order to properly fit the sensors, webcam and earpiece.
Of course, there’s also a reason why you wouldn’t like a bezel-less phone. For instance, if you take a look at our mock-up above, you’ll see that your palm will probably touch the screen and trigger interaction just by simply holding the phone. Not a problem that can’t be fixed with proper software, but still.
