It goes without doubt that every manufacturer is currently looking forward to make use of full screen displays on at-least their flagship devices, and Google’s upcoming Pixel phone is also expected to catch on this trend. A reddit user has put together a mockup of the upcoming Pixel phone to give us a glimpse of what the smartphone could look like if it received a near bezel-less display.
Unlike the Mi Mix and the Aquos Crystal from Sharp, this rendered image of the Pixel 2 features only a top bezel with the rest of the of the screen being near bezel-less. And if Google decides to get on board the dual camera train, we may see a setup similar to what is shown above.
The Pixel and Pixel XL are great phones, no doubt about that, but HTC may not have put in enough effort to rival that of Samsung, LG and Essential’s flagships. The Taiwanese manufacturers recent flagship launch, HTC U11, also didn’t feature better screen-to-body ratio. This makes us wonder if the next Pixel phones, which are rumored to be manufactured by HTC again, would get full screen display treatment or not.
We have high hopes for HTC though and considering that major OEMs like Samsung and LG have already taken the lead in this segment, there’s a good chance of a bezel-less Pixel 2 becoming a reality. LG, TCL and Coolpad started competing for the Pixel 3 back in March and from the look of things, LG seems to have caught Google’s attention for the device, which is slated for a 2018 release.
