The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is official with four cameras, slider design, and barely there bezels

Xiaomi officially launched their Mi Mix 3 today incorporating a magnetic sliding 6.4-inch display. Making use of the slider design maximizes screen real estate providing a true 93.4 percent screen to body ratio without including an unsightly notch.

Without a cut out in the display to house the front-facing cameras you’re left with a near bezel-free screen. The cameras have to go somewhere though, and this is where the slider comes into play. In order to take a selfie, you’ll  [Read More…]

Amazon’s new Echo Show has slimmer bezels and dual side-firing speakers

Pre-orders open today for $ 229.

Although there was a lot of hype and fanfare surrounding the Echo Show when it first debuted last year, it ultimately failed to live up to everyone’s wild expectations. Amazon’s aware of that, and with the all-new second-gen Echo Show, the company’s hoping to address all of the issues we had the first go around.

From a design standpoint, the new Echo Show looks considerably better than its predecessor. The 10-inch  [Read More…]

Saying goodbye to the U11’s circa-2015 bezels.

Although it didn’t have a fancy 18:9 display with slim bezels, the HTC U11 was a truly excellent flagship for 2017 that got more right than wrong. Unfortunately, its arguably outdated design (at least from the front) and stiff competition from Samsung, Apple, and Google held it back from making the impression it probably should have. We’re anticipating a proper sequel at some point this year, and a new render has surfaced  [Read More…]

This was just followed up with a similar render for the regular Pixel 2, and oh boy are there some bezels  [Read More…]
