It has become quite popular nowadays to produce the smartphones with thin bezels. Year after year, companies try to reduce both side, up and down bezels as much as possible. It may not be practical at all since the screen becomes prone to damage if the device is dropped. Also, it is not practical as you can just simply cover part of the screen and leave your fingerprint there. Still, devices like Meizu MX4, which has really thin bezels set the standard for what seems to be really trendy today despite the lack of practicality. This is all for the sake of good looks and probably for the sake of bragging. Both, for the companies, which produce these devices and for the end users.
But what about the bezeless device? Meet the Subor S3, the world’s first smartphone, which has no side bezels. The company officially describes it as “The worlds first dual-4G smartphone without bezels”.
The S3 is equipped with a 5inch 720p screen, it has the body size of 141.5 × 70.3 × 7.8 mm. In addition to this, this phone is equipped with the MTK6732 quad-core chip and it is running Android 4.4 OS. What is more, the device has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage space (expandable via Micro SD card slot). The whole package is powered by 1700mAh capacity battery and 8-megapixel camera on the back with the f/2.0 aperture and another 8MP unit on the front.
Moreover, the Subor S3’s body is covered by the dual Gorilla Glass 3’s (one on the front and another on the back). Also, the device will be available in Black and White colour options. Finally, it is priced at 1399 Yuan and it is now on sale in China. International availability is unknown, but it should be available via international resellers pretty soon.
