Et tu, Moto? Motorola patents bezel-less flexible OLED display gear
Motorola and Sony seem to be the last holdouts of the all-screen phone trend, as they keep churning out phones with juicy top and bottom bezels, but that may very soon change, judging from a recent Motorola patent.

Posted on February 8 by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the patent in question shows a variety of nearly bezel-free and even foldable form factors, which can only be achieved by using flexible OLED screens with plastic substrates, like on Samsung's Galaxy S or Note line of phones. 

There are also quite a few variations covered in the patent sketches for a "Display Device with Heterogeneous Pixel Array for Borderless Design," for instance, including gear with multiple layers of pixels that would allow a foldable design. Now, whether all of that means that Motorola is aiming to bring a truly bezel-less smartphone to the masses, remains to be seen.

But, but, but noooo. We need these bezels. It's impossible without them. Unusable in fact. Without them, I won't be able to claim that the phone I'm a fanboy of is the bees knees of all things tech. Well at least until mine has no bezels. Then I'll laugh at all the losers with big bezels.
