Kirk, 28 Sep 2017I like how everyone's hating on the phone claiming they're just jumping on the bandwagon sayi... moreMy phone, Aquos Crystal by Sharp, has been bezelless since 2014... This bezel game isn't new, only common brands catching up 3 years later... Hello 2017...

It's the Samsung fans with ugly visions requested for bezel-less design, where Sony is now implementing their upcoming flagship. Bezels are here to protect the bloody device, and who said AMOLED, when screen repair is cheaper to replace LCD than AMOLED. I don't think Samsung fans ever used Xperia device with 23MP, now requesting for better lowlight 12MP, there is superior auto mode which has low light if you know how to use it.

people who want a new phone wont wait 6 months .. they will buy it now.
I said that all phones in the future will be useless crap, and LG V20 remains the last true and best smartphone forever.
DenisXD, 28 Sep 2017Sony didn't say they go bezeless, just a shift in design. I for one don't mind the bezels much... moreHe (Sony exec) did say they're going to join the 18:9 bandwagon soon, which means the new device will be bezeless..
I hope Sony keeps the front firing stereo speakers. Sony phones are definitely in need of bezel reduction, but if it comes at the cost of stereo speakers then it won't be truly worth it. Keeping the Screen to body ratio at 75% should allow them to somehow keep the dual speaker and maybe increase the battery capacity at the same time.
Good Quality Phone with Large Battery and Good Specs is more important then a New Trend of Bendable Phone...

Next Sony flagship, I want to see a Dual Camera (Wide+Telephoto), with main camera being a 12-16 Megapixel f/1.6 phone with large pixels, at least 1.4 um, which should churn out excellent pictures. And enough slow motion modes too. I'm talking about 720p@960, 1080p@480 fps, 4K@60 fps, etc...
And I want Audio quality to lead the chart, even ahead of Galaxy Note 8, in terms of loudspeaker and headphones, both.
I know currently the Snapdragon 835 may pose a limit, but I hope the next gen solves this.
UltimateZeroSeconds, 28 Sep 2017Either bezel or bezelless I will use Sony. The design is very squarish. LOL. aaahaahaaa..
well mr heatpipe.. have you changed your mind? lol. you won't be able to hold sony phone again while gaming. LOL.
Sony is always very very late in everything, Lacks vision. Thats why sony always suffers bad sales.
Sony's boxy design feels truly elegant. The design is iconic at this point. Only look at the phone and people can tell it's Sony (those who recognize the branch nowadays anyway).
Chinese manufacturers don't copy it, so it is one of a kind, unlike iPhones and Galaxies which are copied by everyone (including big manufacturer like LG). I hope Sony doesn't give up that exclusivity.
Anonymous, 27 Sep 2017Sony was all about durability, now hearing that they will switch from omnibalance to the bezel... moreSony didn't say they go bezeless, just a shift in design. I for one don't mind the bezels much as long as stereo speakers are part of em.
Faith dies last so don't worry about it yet. xz1 just came out it will be awhile before we see a new flagship.
