It looks like we will be bidding goodbye to bezels very soon.
“Bezels” mean the borders of the phone around the screen in phone-language.
For a while now companies have been trying to shrink the borders till Samsung excelled all of them setting the benchmark with the Samsung Galaxy S8.
And now the jargon has changed from bezel to bezel-less for the Samsung wholesale distributors UK.
Word has it that Apple will be following the way with an edge-to-edge screen on its iPhone 8, but seems like Apple has yet again been overtaken by another company.
Sharp, a company in China, made it to the checkpoint before Apple or Essential for that matter with its Aquos Crystal phone.
Sharp had launched a similar phone a few years ago, but it never caught so much hype.
But now thanks to the publicity by Samsung, Apple, and Essential, Sharp is also benefitting.
The Aquos S2 runs on Snapdragon 630 processor, which is a fine processor for an average phone of under £ 300.
It is like having the body of iPhone 7 and a display of iPhone 7 plus.
With a 5.5-inch display, it has a 2,040 x 1,080 resolution that extends to the top except for a slight bump for the front camera.
Although the top corners of the screen are angled for a reason that is yet unknown.
It also has a RAM of 4GB and a storage of 64GB.
There is a high-end model that is not yet available.
It will have a Snapdragon 660 chip, which is a lot faster and efficient.
It will also have a RAM of 6 GB and a whopping storage of 128 GB.
Both of these models run on Android Nougat and come with a battery size of 3,020 mAh that should last more than half a day on a single charge.
It also has a dual camera, another feature similar to the iPhone, stacked over one another.
The pair has a twelve megapixels lens and another of eight megapixels.
The higher model is rumored to have a solid glass back; you will probably have to get some wholesale phone cases to keep it from damage just in case.
The phone is not entirely bezel-less though due to the fingerprint sensor.
With an edge-to-edge screen that’s usually a confusing point, but Sharp decided to have it in the front rather than at the back, thank goodness.
The fingerprint sensor on the back can be a little frustrating.
While this phone is probably one of the amazing phones that have come out this year, it is for sale just in China for now.
In other words, it won’t be affecting iPhone trade in the UK, as of this date.
If it were to hit the markets in the UK, it would cost around £300, which doesn’t seem to be happening anytime soon, unless you want it personally shipped.
You may also want to get respective accessories because the wholesale accessories in the UK won’t fit.
