Hands On: Ulefone Future Bezel-less Smartphone

by Joel 0

Ulefone has been in the market for the past couple of years and in this time, we have seen some value for money devices from the company. Recently, Ulefone teased its latest flagship in the market, namely the Ulefone Future, which claimed to come with a bezel-less design. Given that a small time Chinese company is making such a big claim, we all were a bit skeptical whether the final product would be anywhere close to bezel-less. Now, after visiting their booth at MWC 2016, it looks like, yes, the Ulefone Future is indeed bezel-less.


The company seems to have kept the design quite simple on the Ulefone Future. The phone is indeed bezel-less with zero visible borders. This makes the display stand out pretty well and therefore, the front looks good. All the buttons are located on the right side of the phone. So, you have the volume keys as well as the power button on that side. You even get a side mounted fingerprint sensor on the same side, which is placed perfectly for your thumb. On the left side, you have the SIM card slots.


Coming to the back, it’s pretty plain. This is the company’s first unibody metal smartphone, and it has decided to keep things simple. You don’t even find a Ulefone branding at the back, but that’s because this is not the final commercial unit. The 16MP camera and the dual LED dual tone flash lies on the top left corner at the back. Finally, coming to the bottom, you can see dual speaker slots, but we are still not sure whether thy are just there for a symmetric design or if there are indeed two speakers on board. In between, you will find the USB Type-C port.


The company is marketing the Ulefone Future as a powerful flagship. It features the Helio P10 MT6755 chipset inside with 4GB RAM and 32GB of storage. The phone will be running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS right out fo the box.
