Docomo variant of Sony D6503 Sirius features razor thin side bezels
But more importantly, the side bezels are razor thin, even thinner than those on the LG G2. Most manufacturers have heard consumers loud and clear. Thick bezels went out of style a few years ago. And yes, Sony has offered Docomo users with their own version of a Sony smartphone before. Remember the Sony Xperia Z1f? That turned out to be a version of the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact for the Japanese carrier.
Or, this could be a case of mistaken identity and the Docomo branded phone could be a different model entirely. With MWC just days away, all will soon be revealed.

No razor thin bezels in any of these photos.
Especialy in third, the panel is obviusly upside-down
and you just can't see the width of the bezels because
are partialy covered by the display itself

yeah thats because stereo speakers at the top and the bottom of the phone + it also has bigger image sensor than average phones.

If the panel is true ~
Then the "Z2" in the vidoe probably prototype ~
Or just a copy of Z1 with Z2 software ~

that will become thicker once the waterproofing components get into the picture. that's just the display itself. they will still add the usual rim for the z series design. the final device will be nowhere that thin.

Now haters will complain bezel is too thin and user will accidentally touch the screen.

I don't really care if it has extremely thin bezels or not. As long as they are close to the Z then it's fine with me. I just want that them to use capacitive buttons, as on-screen buttons just waste the screen and don't have any advantages...

They have; The are higher placed than physical buttons and thus you strain your thumb much less and you have a firmer grip on your telephone rather than precariously holding it from the far bottom edge, plus they swap orientation between portrait and landscape. Once Android 4.4 immersive mode becomes more widespread, on screen buttons will have almost no disadvantages.

You know what,this Is getting ridiculous with the bezels.I haven't seen a phone at in 2-3 years with thick bezels.

this is probably Z2 high-end sidekick, i guess maybe ZL2.

I dont mean to be THAT GUY, but this is JUST THE DIGITIZER, not the entire phone. iphones have super thin digitizers as well, yet their bezels are pretty bad.

I'm not sure what are you trying do but the picture clearly show us there is no differences between iphone digitizer and the iPhone it self.
There is no question that iphone has one of the biggest top and bottom bezels but it also has thin side bezels.
And just for comparison iPhone 5 is only 58.6 mm wide and Galaxy Ace 3 is 62.7 mm wide.

people are either blind or stupid, that thing looks sexy and will dominate things like LG or Samsung. Can't wait to see it hit verizon :)

The issue here is that in image 1, it's the same part just flipped over. So what you are seeing on the left is the backside of the digitizer which tells is nothing of what the bezels will look like. In image 4, you can clearly see the bezels since it's powered up, and while it's thinner than the Z1, it's not ground breaking. It's on par with current gen.
