Leak: Upcoming Meizu MX4 may have the world's smallest bezels

Leak: Upcoming Meizu MX4 may have the world's smallest bezels
Meizu, a company that is set to become one of the first smartphone vendors to offer an Ubuntu-powered device, may also be on path to manufacture a flagship with extremely thin bezels. That much, at least, is plainly visible form a set of leaked photos that are allegedly showing us the front panel of a yet unreleased device, along with the schematics that will be used to craft it.

Published by Chinese ePrice, the images show us that said device, suspected of being the upcoming MX4, may sport super-slim side bezels that measure just 1.1 mm. The bezels on top and bottom are not too large, either, so it could be the case that Meizu is trying to pull a Sharp (or an LG). Obviously, there's no way of knowing if these are legit, though Meizu-related leaks in the past have been pretty spot on. Too spot on, even, some would argue.

The MX4 is rumored to come in two versions -- one with a 5-inch, 1080p display, and another with a 5.5'' 1536 x 2560 pixel resolution one. Odd as that latter version's resolution may sound, do keep in mind that the MX3 has a resolution of 1080 x 1800 pixels. We're also told that at least one of the two models will carry a Snapdragon 805 processor from Qualcomm, along with 3GB of RAM. The camera is said to be a 16MP one. Currently, we're expecting Meizu to launch the MX4 in August.

this is probably how the iPhone 7 would look like if Apple threw away that home button

It is probably too big to be an iPhone, I've seen people with an MX3 in their hand and I thought it was a Mini Tablet.

there's no end, they always find inspiration by each other's design, there will always be the feeling of it looks like this and looks like that. just like iphone is now becoming "look like htc" based on the rumor that is. :)

lg g3 won the bezel war this year, if not the mythical waterproof sharp that's been surfacing on phonearena.

but the bezels shown there will not be the bezels of the phone itself. that is only the black strip needed to cover the edges. there will be another 1/16" (a mm or three) of black space from that stripe to the actual pixels. the g2, g3, s4, s5, and many other phones use this 'trick'.

Looks like iPhone 6S. S is for Slim bezels.
