It goes without saying that smartphones these days are getting larger sized screens, especially among the flagship models, despite having a thinner and ever thinner chassis. Of course, there is another aspect to the smartphone’s display that takes off in the same direction as that of a slim TV – narrower bezels. Xiaomi looks as though they are headed in a similar direction to boot with the alleged Xiaomi Mi4 that you see on the right.
Spotted in a photo, this is said to be the sequel to the existing flagship device known as the Xiaomi Mi3, the first Tegra 4 smartphone in the market that sold a whopping 100,000 units in a matter of 86 seconds. Well, what does this alleged flagship update come with?
So far, the unibody metal design does look appealing to the eyes, in addition to a yet unannounced quad-core processor, a 16MP camera at the back with a suspected large aperture in order for one to snap photos in low-light conditions, a 5” display alongside a pixel density that is close to 300ppi, as well as 4G LTE connectivity. Of course, the bezel will be thin in nature, getting narrower and narrower that we might eventually see the day where a breakthrough is made, and there are no more left and right bezels on a smartphone.
