Take that notch and shove it in the display's corner: check out the leaked fully bezel-less Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s

Take that notch and shove it in the display's corner: check out the leaked fully bezel-less Xiaomi M
2017 was the year when two major events happened in the smartphone world: the fall of the bezel and the rise of the notch. We are talking, of course, about manufacturers slimming out the frame around their phone screens more and more. As a result, some were forced to put their selfie cameras and other front-facing sensors in a cutaway in the display's real estate, which is now affectionately called "the notch". You may have seen it on the iPhone X, but the Essential Phone is also notable for featuring the little bundle of love.

Manufacturers that don't have "the notch" will have a bit of a "forehead" and "chin" on their phones so they could house their sensors comfortably. One such manufacturer is Xiaomi — the bezel-less Mi Mix 2 has a bit of a chin, where we have the selfie camera. But it seems that Xiaomi may be looking to evolve its design further.

The rumor mill has just hurled out a new image, allegedly depicting an upcoming Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s. Seeing Xiaomi update its designs with an "s" model is not a new thing — we've seen it with the Xiaomi Mi 5s, for example. So, we won't be pressing "F" to doubt just yet.

The image shows a phone that has all of its bezels completely slimmed out, with only a small dent in the upper-right corner of the display, housing a selfie camera. It looks a bit... weird, but not entirely appalling. Also, the legitimacy of this low-res image is questionable, to say the least.

All that said, do you feel that an off-center "notch" would be a better or worse move in the bezel-less future we have ahead of us?
