Sony may launch its first bezel-less smartphone at IFA 2017

While even the ultra-conservative Apple has moved to minimise and eliminate bezels from their smartphones, Sony has held traditional bezel sizings as recently as the Xperia XZ Premium. The Japanese firm is apparently looking to launch a borderless handset at the upcoming IFA 2017. It has chosen not to disclose what people can expect on the day.

JDI, a display-maker that's a joint venture between Sony, Toshiba and Hitachi, has announced that it's started mass producing its Full Active QHD screen, which would be ideal for the Sony phone. It usually supplies the screens for the Xperia series. 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.

To recall, JDI had confirmed earlier about the mass production of its Full Active QHD display. 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.

JDI's take on the bezel-less phenomenon employs its Pixel Eyes technology to offer deep blacks and a better response when dealing with wet fingers. There's no information in the Weibo post about where the fingerprint scanner or selfie camera would go in the Sony flagship.
