WOW, that would remove the biggest negative of Sony phones. CanÂ’t wait. If only they also went with OLED displays..
Sony has always produced good looking phones so Im pretty sure they will come up with a gorgeous bezel less phone and I could be one of their customers this time.
Even if design is ugly and camera isn't the best I will buy Sony phone again because of it's smooth stable interface and durable build. But yes good move. It will look cool.
Anonymous, 27 Sep 2017I predict that some clairvoyant Sony fan will claim that Sony's implementation of the bezel-le... moreIf sony somewhat manage to join the bezelless trend and still maintain the stereo speaker and the motion eye camera, they(sony fan) had all ther rights to brag about sony implementation. Since no bezelless phone had that yet
Typing this on a Sony Xperia Tablet Z, a few years old, and not as zippy by today's standards, but physically still the nicest tablet ever made. Grippy thin body, waterproof, stereo speakers and pogo pins, so I just dock it and it becomes a photo frame.
The angular design of this and the current Xperias is in fact both attractive and functional. I have a Note5 and may get a Note8 because I need a stylus, but whilst curvey bezzeless screens are sexy they are pointless, Sony are in fact being sensible!
In other words, will be no side bezels, top and bottom will have biggest waste space as ever, bezel-less :) you need to understand Sony :)
I can look forward for a replacement for my Sharp Aquos Crystal and Crystal X...
The side bezels are already thin enough, the top and bottom bezels are easy enough to deal with thanks to accessibility options in Android, and now people want these ridiculously tall 18:9 displays? Sony, people really just want OIS and IP68 waterproofing. That's all. You don't have to make dumb, extreme sacrifices for more display area.
Stinger430, 27 Sep 2017Now we can look forward to all phones looking the same again.Like they don't look the same past 10 years.
As long they keep 16:9 screen and 13MP selfie.
The 8MP of Note 8 sucks..
Melvin Paul Thanjan, 27 Sep 2017Iphone learned it (even though they learned it late!) and switched their display type to amole... moreIt is a deferent story buddy, the Joled is not ready yet but it is expected to be ready in 2018.
First sullpy the accessories of sony phone. Waiting from last one month to get the phone repaired in sony service centre
mir, 27 Sep 2017Unless you want a phone that looks like a remote.I mean...beyond the phone?...just whatever to set a trend, not to follow it...
Iphone learned it (even though they learned it late!) and switched their display type to amoled. When is Sony going to learn a lesson?!
A bit late but a welcome move. A brand like Sony shouldn't be stagnant in providing better designs for their mobile devices, where their other devices got better designs to go with. This is kind of realization on part of Sony that they are going nowhere with their bezel full boxy designs.
