As quoted from Phone Arena, the Japanese company will release a flagship smartphone without a bezel in the IFA 2017.
The news also mentioned that Sony's top class smartphone has a 6-inch LCD screen with 18: 9 aspect ratio.
If the news is true, this smartphone would be a turning point Sony in terms of design. A number of companies have now trimmed the bezel on their flagship smartphone screen. But among the many companies manufacturing smartphones, Sony still hesitate to present bezel-less design.
The truth of this news will only prove in some future time.
Previously, the company has launched a premium smartphone Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XS, XA1, and XA1 Ultra. None of the above smartphones that carry the screen without a bezel.
In fact, you could say that the edge and bottom of the Sony smartphone screen has a large size. Meanwhile, each side of the phone is quite thin without the edge.
Unfortunately this news can not be ascertained the truth. Earlier in the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017, Marketing Director Sony Don Messa said, until now the company is still satisfied with the aspect ratio of 16: 9.
In addition, the entertainment division of the company, Sony Pictures, currently still rely on the 16: 9 format. So it's not a good thing if companies make devices with different aspect ratios.
On the other hand, the conglomerate of Sony's screen division, Toshiba, and Hitachi Japan Display announced that the company will start mass producing full-screen LDC Active Active with thin panel designs on all four sides of the screen.
Not only that, two weeks ago the company also announced 18: 9 aspect ratio that is suitable for smartphones. This is because Apple and Samsung are ready to launch a premium smartphone with an all screen design in the third quarter of 2017. So it makes sense for Japanese manufacturers to respond to the competition.
