Opinion: The Future Is All-Screen Display And We Have To Live With It

All every mobile device manufacturers appears to making the dream and predictions of Isaac Asimov real and All-Screen is among them. We are almost there, but few more painful steps needs to be taken. Last week we talked about the challenges of using bezel-less phones and we stated that it’s not the way forward. Well, that’s an angle to view the recent innovation, there are other perspectives one needs to look at.

Grip on Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge

Last week, the point about the devices with curved edges was just the little or now allowance they give for ideal grip. Well, Side Bezels Are Already Practically Fading Away as we can see in the last one year.

Our Arrival At The Notch But Not The Final Destination

Phones in the likes of Honor View 20, Huwawei nova 4 and Samsung Galaxy A8s are the next step after the eyesore that was the notch. The infamous cutout is still giving many of us nightmares, but its days are numbered. It will not be long before the hole trend is over too.

Some engineers are already working on ways to put the selfie camera beneath the screen and eventually the death of cutouts is at hand, at least for premium phones.

The Waterdrop Is A Path

You see the selfie camera is the last big element at the front of our phones that necessitates that some part of it isn’t active screen. And with social media giving selfie shots such great importance it’s not going away. Yet it’s just of another challenge that needs to be overcome before we get the phones of the future.

The Gradual Shrinking Of Mi Mix Bottom Bezel

So back to the bezel-less design. I think the solution is a 2017 Xiaomi Mi Mix with a modern twist where the bottom bezel disappears in the style of modern iPhones – think X, XS or XS Max. Of course, there are also sliders, pop-up mechanisms and dual screen phones.

There are plenty of solutions to work with without curving the edges, so technically we have bezel-less phones in the 2019 sense, we just don’t appreciate them.

The Future Of True Bezel-less Design Is Closer

Of course, there is also the sexy vivo Apex 2019 concept. It comes with no keys, no ports, and most importantly – no selfie camera. This looks futuristic enough. Other companies will follow suit just like they did with the under display fingerprint scanner and before you know it, true bezel-less design will be here.

And it doesn’t have to be uncomfortable at all – curved edges might take away some grip, but if the consumers speak loudly enough with their wallets flat frames can make a return. Failing that, user interfaces and screen technologies will inevitably improve enough so accidental touches won’t be an issue.

At that point if you really want bezels for your hit of nostalgia you’ll simply need to get a case for your phone and you are done. But you’ll be missing on all the glorious improvements of technology.
