Video of Oppo's futuristic phone with no side bezels shows the device in action
A duo of curious photos cropped up yesterday, giving us a glimpse of an Oppo-branded phone that featured virtually no side bezels. This would have been doubly surprising, even somewhat suspicious, were it not for the fact that Oppo was found having filed a patent application back in December 2014 that would allow the maker to do exactly that – bezel-less phones.

As if to prove that there's no foul play here and that is indeed an early prototype of Oppo's new phone concept, the source of the images appears to have gone the extra mile, and has also shot a video whilst playing with it, showing it is operational. The video is hosted in China, so the below clip might take a little longer to load than you're used to.

In any case, Oppo isn't only one pushing the envelope in this particular niche. Just the other day, a trio of images outlining a new LeTV smartphone caught our attention. Like Oppo's gadget, the LeTV phone (seen below) also touted near zero bezels at the sides and an overall appealing design.

Take a look at both.

Side bezels ate there for a reason. Protection and durability of phones removing it is just plain gimmick. I wouldn't mind trimming it down a bit but this is a no go at all. Let see the drop test on that phone.

Side bezels don't do anything if you drop your phone....This arguments is void.

This. I never understood the logic behind small bezels and less durability That being said this phone has huge top and bottom bezels I prefer a balance of small side bezels and top and bottom bezels E.g. Xperia ZL, Moto X 2014, LG G2/G3, ...

Without Side bezels Phone looks Horrible and ugly. Tiny Side Bezels like Xperia Z3 is Ok. (i am not talking about top and bottom bezels).
