Maze Alpha up for pre-order: the most affordable bezel-less phone
Now, the cat is out of the bag and the Alpha is up for pre-sale. Maze proudly announces it to be the most affordable bezel-less smartphone — well, it still has a chin, a-la Xiaomi Mi Mix, but you get the gist of it — and its hardware is nothing to sneeze at either.
So, back on track, the Maze Alpha sports a 6-inch, 1080 x 1920 IPS LCD display covering almost the entirety of its front. The handset is powered by an octa-core Mediatek Helio P25 — the smaller brother of the deca-core X25 and an upper-midrange SoC — clocked at 2.5 GHz, coupled with 4 GB or 6 GB or RAM, and with 64 or 128 GB of on-board storage. The cell in the back packs 4,000 mAh of power and supports MediaTek's PE+ for fast charging.
As for the dual camera, it has a 13 MP main sensor — with comparatively small 1.13 μm pixels — made by Samsung, and an assistive sensor with a 5 MP resolution. The latter is used to collect information about depth and lighting, while the 13 MP snapper takes a photo. The main camera has an F2.2 aperture and, unfortunately, lacks an OIS module. So, the camera doesn't sound like it can outperform the best players in the market, but we feel like the phone's design, hardware, and price more than make up for that.
So, what's the price, you ask? Maze is currently running a pre-sale for the handset, which will run until the 30th of June. During this period, the Maze Alpha will cost you $179.99, and it will rise to $219.99 afterward. Sadly, you can only get it in black and you can only order the 64 GB / 4 GB variant for now.
