4 best bezel-less smartphones of 2018

By  GB Blog Official 2018-04-16 4740 1

Cameras and screens have been the focus of most flagships this year so far. And it comes as no surprise that most of this year's releases have also opted for the ever-so-popular bezel-less look. In this post, we take a closer look at the best bezel-less smartphones of 2018 (so far).

Huawei P20 Pro - $1,100

First, let's have a quick look at the main specs of Huawei P20 Pro.  

Display 6.1 inch AMOLED screen; 1080 x 2240px resolution
CPU Kirin 970 chipset Octa Core processor

Rear camera:
Triple Leica camera: 40 MP (RGB, f/1.8 aperture) + 20 MP (Monochrome, f/1.6 aperture) + 8 MP (Telephoto, f/2.4 aperture)
Front camera:
Single-lens camera:24 MP, f/2.0 aperture

Memory 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM
OS Android 8.1 + EMUI 8.1
Battery capacity 4,000mAh battery

Having just been launched at the end of March this year, the Huawei P20 and the Huawei P20 Pro are already the talk of the smartphone town. The Huawei P20 Pro, in particular, has been hailed as the new "it" phone challenging the previous flagships like the iPhone X and the Samsung Galaxy S9+ not only in functionality but also in price. Coming to the European markets soon with the hefty price tag of $1,100, the Pro does bring a lot to the table.

First, there is the beautiful 6.1 inch AMOLED screen with 1080 x 2240px resolution and 408ppi taking up almost 100% of the phone's front panel. The bezel-less design is even complete with the notch made infamous by the iPhone X.

One of the most talked about features of the new Huawei are the triple Leica cameras promising a truly unique photo taking experience not yet available on the market. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.1 and runs on the Kirin 970 chipset, octa-core processor. The company has also managed to pack an impressive 4,000mAh battery into the phone's thin frame.

Huawei P20 - $800

Then, let's see Huawei P20 specs.

Display 5.8 inch screen, 1080 x 2244 resolution
CPU Kirin 970 chipset Octa Core processor

Rear camera:
Dual-lens camera:12 MP (RGB, f/1.8 aperture) + 20 MP (Monochrome, f/1.6 aperture)
Front camera:
Single-lens camera: 24 MP, f/2.0 aperture

Memory 4GB RAM + 128GB ROM
OS Android 8.1 + EMUI 8.1
Battery capacity 3,400mAh battery

 Huawei P20

The Huawei P20 is simpler than its Pro co-flagship — but not by much. True, you won't get the hype-creating triple Leica camera combo. The Huawei P20 comes with the modest arrangement of 24.0MP front camera and 12 MP + 20 MP back cameras— but you get very much of the same functionality elsewhere. The smartphone's screen is only slightly smaller at 5.8 inch and features 1080 x 2244 resolution — so you do get the same bezel-less look and all the benefits that come with it.

The processor is also the same — the Octa Core Hisilicon Kirin 970 — and the same amount of storage (128GB) with a bit less RAM (4GB). The battery is also smaller — 3,400mAh.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S - $659.99

Likewise, let's have an overall glance at the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.  

Display 5.99 inch screen, 2160 x 1080 resolution
CPU Snapdragon 845 Octa Core processor
Camera Back-camera: 12.0MP + 12.0MP 
Front camera: 5.0MP 
Memory 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM
Battery capacity 3,400mAh battery


Xiaomi MI MIX 2S 4G Phablet

Xiaomi MI MIX 2S 4G Phablet Global Version - BLACK

Have a quick look at the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, you instantly know why this particular smartphone is opening our bezel-less list. Featuring a screen that is almost overflowing, the Mi Mix 2S is a stunning exercise in design — and a task well-accomplished. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S's extra large 5.99 inch display offers a whole different level of visual experience pairing its generous size with the 2160 x 1080 resolution.

 Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S also comes with more than most users have come to expect from phablets — it's not all about the screen. Or even the strong camera combo: 12.0MP + 12.0MP dual back cameras and 5.0 MP front camera. With the Mi Mix 2S, you get 6GB RAM and 64GB ROM for multitasking and efficient storage. Plus you have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Octa Core clocked at 2.8GHz on your side.

On the interface side, you have the MIUI 9 OS and the 3,400mAh makes sure you get to enjoy all these features longer without a re-charge.

Elephone U Pro 4G Phablet - $396.03

Finally, it's the specs of Elephone U Pro 4G Phablet.


Display 5.99 inch 10 points AMOLED display
CPU Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa Core
Camera Back-camera: 13.0MP + 13.0MP 
Front camera: 8.0MP
Memory 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM
OS Android 8.0
Battery capacity 3,550mAh battery


Elephone U Pro 4G Phablet

Elephone U Pro 4G Phablet - 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM BLACK

Coming at almost half the price of the Mi Mix 2S, the Elephone U Pro 4G comes very close to the more expensive model — in fact, you get much of the same functionality with a much (much!) smaller price tag. You get the same "spilling over the edges" effect and the smartphone's screen is the same size as well — an impressive 5.99 inches. You even get the same resolution — 2160 x 1080 pixels.

 Elephone U Pro

The U Pro 4G comes with a slightly stronger camera setup too — you have 13.0MP + 13.0MP dual rear cameras and an 8.0MP front camera and there is more than enough multitasking power and storage space. On the processing side, you get a weaker (compared to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S) Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa Core clocked at 2.2GHz. But you do get more storage — 128GB and the same amount of RAM — 6GB.

Elephone U Pro
