Bezels are so 2016, aren’t they?
Well, seems like some part of Apple and Google are still stuck in the past.
If you are interested in staying up-to-date about smartphones, then you probably know about the new overhyped iPhone 8 and Pixel are about to be unveiled.
According to the many leaks, we know that they will have extremely slim bezels like the Essential phone that was recently released or the Samsung S8 that actually set the trend.
Smartphones keep coming with broad bezels, and most feel good in hands unlike phones such as Samsung S8, you can’t get mobile phone cases UK market to wrap around that body.
But a change is in motion and things won’t be the same forever.
Ever since Samsung has gone edge-to-edge, it has become a challenge for other competitors.
While some may still launch smartphones with broad bezels like Nokia who are just a minorities, but the expectation from the bigger players is different.
And they are indeed living up to them, mostly.
We have the new iPhone 8 and Google Pixel coming with a bezel-less display, but with them, we also have the iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and Pixel 2 with large bezels.
Companies like LG with the V30, Huawei with Mate 10 and even Xiaomi are coming up with bezel-less phones to keep up with the rolling changes in the tech world.
There is no doubt that iPhone 8 and Google Pixel will be successful because not only are they bezel-less but they also seem to have a headphone jack.
But the thing is that they are also releasing the iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S plus and Pixel 2.
And with the leaked photos of these other phones suggest that they look like ugly stepsisters of the phones they are being released with.
So what is all this about?
Are these companies doing this on purpose to show how one model looks better than the other?
Doesn’t really make sense, does it?
For instance when Samsung S8 was released alongside S8 plus they both had infinity display, and my! Were they a beauty!
And now that they have released Note 8, it seems to follow the same suit.
Then what possibly can make the two biggest players on the field to make a mistake so dumb?
Are they targeting a new market sector altogether, or maybe selling these phones with an outdated software that goes with the outlook of people?
Unless they are selling these phones at overly low prices, it’s hard to think of people wanting to buy these instead of the edge-to-edge beautiful phones.
It will be no surprise if the tech geek rule of these phone and “outdated” and “boring”, and possibly not worth paying so much to upgrade to iPhone 7 or the old Google Pixel.
