Last year’s smartphone industry was dominated by Bezel-less smartphones with 18:9 aspect ratio. Many stunning bezel-less smartphones like the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, Samsung Galaxy S8, and the Apple iPhone X was blessed with the sleek bezel-less design but with faults. A complete bezel-less smartphone with 100% screen ratio is yet to enter the market. Previously we covered a patent from WIPO (World International Property Office) by Samsung which revealed a smartphone completely devoid of the bezel was at work.
Samsung Galaxy Z
A video showing the bezel-less smartphone to be named as Samsung Galaxy Z has been uploaded to YouTube Channel Mrwhosetheboss. The YouTube channel Mrwhosetheboss backs his claims by mentioning the patent Samsung filed on November 30 last year which not only contained designs but the solution to its problems.
The design of the Galaxy X reminds of the Galaxy S8 series minus its bezels. It will have a metallic Aluminium body frame. The display has a 100% screen ratio and the bezel-less infinity display spectacular. As for the question where the front camera will go, Samsung will be developing an under display camera. The phone will automatically switch off the pixels in the front when the camera is activated so in regular mode the camera will not be visible to the user. The device will also have a software algorithm to correct the distortion created by the display.
The physical power and volume rocker buttons are going to replaced by virtual ones to reduce repair and increase resistance. Samsung has already filed a patent for an on-screen fingerprint sensor, and they will include this on the Samsung Galaxy Z. Also, it will also be having a piezoelectric earpiece that will help to take calls even with the Full sized display.

Since the smartphone is not officially announced or even appeared on any other website, the specs remain a mystery. However, according to another video, the device will feature a 5.9 inch Super AMOLED display of HD+ (2960 x1440 pixels) and 18:9 aspect ratio with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection on both front and back sides. Under the hood, there will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with Adreno 630. There will be two variants: 4 GB RAM+ 64 GB internal space and 6 GB RAM + 128 GB internal space further expandable to 256 GB by micro SD card.
The device will have a dual camera setup on the rear containing 16 MP cameras stacked in a vertical arrangement with f/1.6 aperture. OIS and LED Flash while offering a dual 12 MP cameras on the front with f/1.6 aperture and LED Flash. It will run on Android 8.0 Oreo and will be backed by a 3700 mAh battery with support for Quick Charge. The device will include a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Samsung Galaxy Z Price in India and Availability
The Galaxy Z is likely to cost the same as the Galaxy S9 series which is speculated to be around 1000$ (Price in India Rs 65,000 approx). As for the availability Samsung is not likely to unveil this on next month’s MWC 2018 since they will be focused on their S9 flagship series. The device may be launched in July-August where there will be plenty of time to focus on their Note 9 to be launched by the end of this year. By launching the first truly bezel-less smartphone, Samsung will show its dominance and also bring a fresh perspective to the world of smartphone design.
