Chinese panel suppliers now offer near bezel-less panels for high-end to low-end handsets

The China Information Technology Expo recently came to an end, and based on the panels on display by Chinese manufacturers, it seems that all of these firms are working on the so-called modern look. What exactly does that mean? It means that these companies are now rolling out all-screen panels with an aspect ratio of 18:9. From entry-level models sporting a WVGA resolution display (400 x 840) to high-end smartphones, these companies producing glass panels in China are making the change from the 16:9 ratio that was once widely used. The near bezel-less look is driving the move to the taller and narrower screens.

In addition, the panel producers out of China are also working on flexible AMOLED screens, and displays that are embedded with a fingerprint scanner. As we recently told you, Apple, Samsung and Qualcomm are each working on the more expensive but highly accurate ultrasonic under display fingerprint reader. Most Chinese phone manufacturers are happy to go with the cheaper, but less accurate optical technology.

This year, we should see phones sporting the near bezel-less look start to appear in the low-end of the market. For example, the Moto E5 Plus features a 6-inch LCD display with a resolution of 720 x 1440, an aspect ratio of 18:9, and thin bezels. This device could be priced under $200 when launched by Sprint later this month.

I prefer adequate bezels with good functions: decent camera, flash light, sensors, speakers, etc.

Those are huge bezels, he said "adequate" maybe more in line with S9 bezels.

Funny. I've actually met more iPhone 8 Plus owners than iPhone X owners.

So will the Lenovo Z5 not have a front camera? What about ear peace for phone calls? How will this work?

Front camera? Check Vivo Apex's front camera... Ear piece? Xiaomi already give 2 solutions for that, check Mi Mix and Mi Mix 2..

For the earpiece solution look at the Essential Phone. It can be part of the top bezel.
