Sharp beats everyone to completely bezeless phone

Forget Xiaomi’s Mi MIX, Samsung’s, Galaxy S8 or Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8: Apple supplier Sharp is set to launch a completely bezeless devices on the July 17. According to GizChina, Sharp’s rather mundanely branded FS8016 and FS8010 phones will have 100 percent seamless appearance with no bezels on the sides and really high screen to body ratios.

The otherwise identical Android devices have different processors: the FS8016 model uses a Snapdragon 660 processor with 6GB of RAM while its FS8010 counterpart is powered by a Snapdragon 330 chip with 4GB of RAM.

Each phone will come running on Android 7.1.1 and have a 5.5-inch display with with a 2,048-by-1,080 pixel resolution, dual twelve-megapixel rear cameras, an eight-megapixel camera on the front and 64 GB of onboard memory.

I’m not surprised that Sharp has managed to design what’s essentially a seamless phone with a 100 percent full-screen face with no visible bezels given their awesome Aquos Crystal device in 2014, which filed as the first phone to have three of its sides completely bezel-less.
