Rendering of Motorola's edge-to-edge bezeless phone shows how the concept might look

Rendering of Motorola's edge-to-edge bezeless phone shows how the concept might look
Just the other day, word leaked about a smartphone being made by Motorola with an edge-to-edge screen and no bezel. There are smartphone users who for one reason or another, simply do not like thick bezels. Removing the bezel would allow Motorola to increase the size of the screen on a model, while keeping the phone's dimensions the same. The bezel-free unit is said to be one of the phones that Motorola and Verizon will introduce on September 5th during their press event. The handset is said to be LTE enabled.

Reddit user Edalol has come out with a rendering of what he thinks such an edge-to-edge screened Android handset would look like. A thin rim at top prevents accidental pressing of the screen. Extra space at the top and bottom of the device leaves room for the speaker and to allow the user to hold the device in landscape mode.

Without channeling the late Steve Jobs, a bezel free phone would require the user to hold it in a certain way as to prevent your palm from setting off a touch input. Perhaps Motorola followed the example set by laptop manufacturers. The latter uses special software to prevent a user's palm from accidentally clicking on a link with a wayward palm.

So what's the verdict? Would you like to see smartphones go bezel-free or would you prefer to have some type of barrier between the edge of your phone and the edge of the screen.
