Sony Latest Update: Sony's Claims Bezel-Less Flagship Could Definitely Copy Concept From The Xperia Concept

It looks like Sony might be preparing to surprise everyone this fall. A new claim which surfaced on Chinese social media Weibo suggests that the tech giant could introduce a bezel-less flagship model rocking a 6-inch LCD display with an 18:9 aspect ratio at this year's IFA.

Sony's Claims Bezel-Less Flagship Could Definitely Copy Other Concept

WCCF Tech reported that Saber Kchikech might not be a name that sticks in the fans head when they think about smartphone concepts. However, fans should definitely give him credit for rolling out the latest Xperia Concept.

While the top and bottom sides of the phone reveal that it is a recipient of the 2016 lineup of smartphones, the sides have little to no bezels. It simply means that this is the kind of phone that Sony could be envisioning to unveil later down the road and perhaps it is willing to go the extra mile in trimming the top and bottom bezels too.

The power button is located on the sides of the phone, which is the 'Sony special' when it comes to the location of this particular button. Smartly enough, even the fingerprint reader is embedded beneath the power button, meaning that Sony will have plenty of room in cutting down the bezels from its flagship handset.

Meanwhile, PhoneArena reported that if this turns out to be correct, it would mark a huge turn in Sony's design philosophy. Many of the company's competitors have recently opted to trim down the bezels of their flagships.

However, fans certainly won't find that on any 2017 Sony phone released to this date. The Xperia XZ Premium, XZs, XA1, and XA1 Ultra all sport sizeable bezels on the top and bottom, although the latter two don't have bezels on the side.

Fans are not too sure on whether to deem this rumor as credible or totally false. On one side, Sony's marketing director Don Mesa did say that the company is perfectly content with the 16:9 ratio at this year's MWC.
