Immerse Yourselves In Your Favourite Movies On Bezel-Less Large Displays
In recent years, many have argued about the stagnation of technological innovation when it came to design. Just then the smartphone industry engaged themselves in many new experiments. In the year 2017, iconic changes were brought to the designs through the introduction of bezel-less smartphones. The dominant players in this segment included Apple, Samsung, LG, Xiaomi and many more.
The biggest win of the bezel less phones is the large display in a relatively compact device. All thanks to the development of the screen technology. With the evolution of the bezel-less concept, the manufacturers can create smaller, compact smartphones without making any compromises on the screen size. Watching movies to playing games to capturing videos and images on a display without borders has become more fun and easier and is exactly the kind of immersive experience that everyone looks up to. With the upgrade of display size from 5-inches to 5.5-inch and 5.7-inch displays, bezel-less phones’ most rewarding point lies in adding a larger display without increasing the size of the phone.
This is evident in Samsung Galaxy S8 which has a taller 5.8-in QHD+ “Infinity” screen. The top and bottom bezels of the phone are much smaller, giving it a screen-to-body ratio of approximately 83 percent. With the reduction in bezels, the Galaxy S8 offers more immersive experiences for viewing movies and playing games on the smartphone. In comparison, the iPhone 7 has a screen-to-body ratio of 65 percent. Another outstanding example is Huawei P30 Pro that features a 6.47-inch display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 with a teardrop notch carved out of the top and a sliver of thin bezel at the bottom. With a screen-to-body ratio of 88.5% and OLED screen, it offers a seamless and hassle-free experience in watching movies.
There can be no practical limit to the physical size of the phone which is typically characterized by the size of the user’s hands or pockets. Due to this, instead of increasing the size of the device, tech giants came up with a better solution. As a result, the viewing area of the displays is amplified without increasing the overall size of the phones. These include bezel-less designs and new aspect ratios. With increased display, users today are enthralled watching their favourite movies on the large display screens of bezel-less phones by downloading from websites like Extramovies, Movierulz, Netflix, Amazon Prime etc without the need to visit a movie theatre and splurge uselessly.
Regarding bezel-less display screens, Paul Sandip, Product designer and Innovation Consultant at Paul Studio stated, “Bezel-less design uses the entire front panel as its display, leaving a powerful silhouette that surpasses the limits of current devices”. The Home button has been removed to utilize its technical space to expand user space and shatter the boundary between the device and the real world. The grip is defined by how well a device’s curves fit in a hand. The subtle curvature of the device’s front, back, and middle convene at each of the edges to form a perfect symmetry, thereby virtually eliminating the bezel. The curves are harmoniously synchronized with the rounded edges to fit comfortably in a user’s hand.”
