The smartphone is a first to feature a bezel-less design in a true sense. The phone comes with a top and side bezels of 1.8mm thickness, while the bottom is just 4.3mm thick. It features a screen-to-body ratio of 98 percent, making it a truly bezel-less smartphone. This is due to the flexible OLED platform with microchips mounted directly to the flexible circuit, which results in such screen-to-body ratio.
