Honor Teases Bezel-Less Smartphone Launch In December 5 Event Invite

by Jeet 0

After launching Honor 7X smartphone at an event in China, Honor is now all set to host another event. The company has started sending out media invites for an event that is taking place on 5th December in London.

The invite reads “Max Your View”, and mentions the date of December 5. The invite also shows the outline of a smartphone with extremely thin bezels, but it doesn’t reveal anything related to the phone in question.

However, the interesting thing is that while some have received invites with outlines of two smartphones, some invites only shows the outline of just one.

At the bottom, there is a logo which looks similar to “IOOI”. We are not sure what to make of it, but going by the tradition, the symbol “OO” — two Os usually stands for dual camera setup. So, we are assuming that the phone will feature dual cameras.

After dual cameras, bezel-less phones have now become a new thing in the smartphone industry. The trend, which started with the Mi MIX, has followed via many flagship smartphones, including Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Apple iPhone X, LG G6 and V30, and the more recently Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, and Google Pixel 2 XL, among others.

Given the fact that the recently launched Honor 9i features two cameras on the front as well as on the back, it will be interesting to see if the company continues the trend.

Yesterday, Honor launched its new smartphone — Honor 7X, which features a 5.93-inch Full HD+ display with slim bezels and 18:9 aspect ratio. It packs HiSilicon Kirin 659 octa-core processor with 4GB of RAM. The storage options include 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. The camera includes a dual 16MP + 2MP camera setup at the rear and an 8MP shooter up front. A 3,340mAh battery with fast charging keeps it running.
