Here's the iPhone without bezels - do you like what you're seeing?
What's an iPhone 7 Edge? It's an iPhone with practically-non-existent bezels that isn't a creation of anyone at Apple, but rather envisioned by prolific smartphone concept designer Hasan Kaymak.

Instead of bezels, the screen's sides have curved 'edges'. The subtle curve to the laminated display makes it look like a part of the handset's body. The concept retains the iPhone 6's build materials and form factor, but the plastic bands filling in the antenna cut-outs have been gotten rid of, and an additional set of speaker holes have been drilled into the bottom end. The Lighting cable port has been replaced with pins for some reason, which doesn't look like a very Apple thing to do, but hey, it's there!

That curious tidbit aside, the iPhone 7 edge concept does look like something Cupertino could bring to the market when the time comes along, albeit in a more refined form. Check out the glossy renders and video below, and let us know what you think!

Concept always looks like lamborghini cars and when it comes to reality, it will looks like a toyota car. lol

We know the 6s will look exactly same as 6. It's an 'S' release and hence the device will be turbocharged from inside. Why even bother?

Not really. Some tweaks are added to the design. Still agree with you. I'm more concerned with internals than design though.

What's the big deal about iPhone design anyway iPhone have a lot of bezels and Apple don't have any innovation in its pocket to remove those. Better screen to body ratio is what iPhone needs why anyone think their going to make a bezel less phone?

I know right. I couldn't even read it.

It's not a good idea at all to have no bezel, makes it easier to accidentally press the screen when holding the phone, also for the same reason makes holding the phone a little more awkward.

Hey c'mon,who 'r kidding?,yourself I guess..... Just admit it,you so much crave a beautiful bezeless curved edged screen,wrapped on a top notch powerful and efficient device,then just suck it and go get yourself a Samsung Galaxy s6Edge Dream on iPhoners.....Apple's weirdly small screen to body ration isn't even gonna let a curved edged screen appear half as good looking as a bezeless smartphone ought to.....#Touche!

No not really. It's pretty nifty to look at but everyday functionality - I'll pass. Samsung's sales didn't reach expectations so I'm sure others agree

You can tell this is a concept, it is not plausible at all. Do they even care about signals?

would be more likely to have a type C port instead of that wierd thing at the bottom. still not bad

Yeah, it's ok I guess...but the more important question is, when will it actually happen? Probably iPhone 8S or something.

Hugeeeeeeee top and bottom bezels

The biggest problem with the iPhone is the top and bottom bezels not the side ones. Look how the iPhone 6 is as tall as a 5" phone or how the iPhone 6 Plus is almost as tall as the Nexus 6. But unless Apple adopts ultrasonic fingerprint readers (like Qualcomm's Sense ID) they'll never be able to get rid of the front button and make the device "all-screen". So you're much more likely to see many all-screen Android devices in the next few years.

Apple can remove bezels if they want. If those chinese companies can, they certainly can. But they don't. Why? What makes the iPhone not awkward and beautiful is the symmetry in design. They could definitely reduce the side bezels a bit but I don't want them to completely get rid of it. It'll look like something from Oppo or Meizu.
