The 2018 Smartphones Trends: It’s Going All Screen with Slim-to-No Bezel [Join the POLL]

The past few years all manufacturers race to build bigger phone with bigger screen and more enhanced fingerprint scanner. This year and the following years, the trend – as we all can see – is changing. It’s no longer about just bigger screen. It’s no longer about fingerprint scanner and how to embed fingerprint scanner beneath the screen display. Moments after Apple announced Face ID – Apple method of doing face scanning to unlock the device – the race to embed fingerprint scanner into the display, I believe it’s done. Done as nobody will continue to pursue that technology – even if someone successfully make it, the trend has shifted.  Today and for the next few years ahead, it’s all about going all screen with slim-to-no bezel and face scanner.
