    Are we ready for a bezel free phone?

    ^Here are the phones that tried it before.

    So I guess the real question is can we do it right, and is Xiaomi the company to be able to do it right?

    That phone looks pretty sweet overall. Great specs. Great price. Too bad it's a Chinese exclusive device. Even if it came to the States, chances of it working on Verizon are laughable.

    I think it would be great to use. Long term trial with option to return.

    The look is great, but handling is a pain, my Note 7, without the edge bezel, is a great phone, but I touch the screen edges quite a bit without intending.

    My Mandarin is a bit rusty, but I understood the words "ok" and "Sony sensor".
    If we thought finding a case to protect the Samsung Edge series was difficult, it'll be interesting to see what they come up with for this. Regardless, that's one sweet looking device.
